The boys freaked out a little over the gnocchi last night, so we’re going with a nice, familiar lunch today to make up for it!

This tasty home made pizza is easy to make and, in my opinion, far superior to shop bought ones.

Proper Nice Pizza Bread

You will need:

1) Some bread; home made, rolls, whatever really!

2) 2 quorn sausages (or pepperoni if you prefer! I’m using up my leftovers from last night…)

3) 1 tbsp olive oil

4) Four fresh tomatoes (I’ve only got two, so I’m compensating for it with a bit of tomato puree)

5) dried basil

6) 100g of mozzarella, roughly chopped

7) A handful of grated cheddar (if you’ve got some to use up!)

A handful of olives, chopped in half.


How to make it:

1) Begin by cooking the sausages on the hob, in a bit of oil. It takes about 8 minutes, make sure to keep turning to avoid burning! Whilst they are cooking, drain and chop up the mozzarella in a bowl, and grate the cheddar.


2) In the meantime, pre heat the oven to 200c, and start preparing the bread, placing chopped tomatoes (and puree, if you are like me and don’t have enough tomatoes!) on the bread, then the mozzarella and cheddar.


3) Chop up the sausages, halve the olives, then add them to the top of your pizzas, with a little sprinkle of basil.


4) Pop them in the oven for about ten minutes, then remove and serve with side salad. Yum!



Total Cost: Roughly £2.00 (bread was homemade and the mozzarella was cheap supermarket, which tastes just as good!) So 50p a person.

The Verdict? As you might imagine, there was big love going on for the pizza bread, even from DB2, who is about the only person on earth that I know who doesn’t like cheese. Despite having loads on their plates (I had bread to use up as it was going a bit dry!) they both pretty much cleared it, bar a few crusts. I thought it was very tasty too, a nice filling meal, which feels wonderfully like a slob by treat, but is actually not nearly as bad as you might think, with fresh tomatoes and olives and side salad representing the veggie front!
