Time to ditch the crappy shop-bought sarnie

Booooooooooooooooooo back to work.  But woooooooooooooooooooooo! for the nice food that can help to make up for the rubbish weather.

Time to think up some nice lunches to make perk up the working week.  One such option for you below – quick, easy and tasty-tastic.  Get your cook on………...

Pitta pizzas

I found these in a BBC Good Food magazine from early last year and made them one afternoon following an unexpected (yet highly appreciated) visit from my niece and nephew.  Warming comfort food in the space of ten minutes – and as I later discovered, perfect to take into the office.  Nicely does it.  They’re not particularly gourmet but then who cares?  And I think it’s entirely satisfactory to have two of these pizzas to oneself ;-)

2 x  readymade pitta breads (go for the slightly more expensive ones rather than the value ones as they tend to be tiny)
2 tbsp tomato puree
¼ tsp mixed herbs
2 x medium tomatoes
1 x ball mozzarella cheese or (lets take this old skool) 2 x tbp cheddar cheese

These are really good on their own.  But on the day I made them I just so happened to have a few cold sausages in the fridge so sliced them fairly thinly on the diagonal and wacked them on as well.  Equally you could put anything else on you fancied (though for things like peppers, mushrooms or onion, make sure they’re cooked first or they’ll end up being a bit raw).  They’re also really good with a teaspoon of pesto smeared on top of the tomato puree.

To make, just layer up, making sure you finish with the cheese and a quick drizzle of extra virgin olive oil or rapeseed oil.  Place under a pre-heated grill for 4 – 5 minutes until golden and bubbling.

Either eat straight away – or – take to work and eat cold or heat up in the microwave.  They’re just as good and you can laugh in an evil villain style whilst watching everyone else eat their scabby shop bought sandwich.  Muhahahahahahahahah.
