Recipe for Tomato and Basil Pizza. Homemade pizza is great for a weekend family treat, and much cheaper than the take-out version. Bonus – it tastes better too!
1/4 of your pizza dough (see video)
1 pkt Ina Paarman’s Tomato Pesto
1 cup (250 ml) grated mozzarella cheese
10-12 very fine slices of chorizo sausage or salami
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
Ina Paarman’s Green Onion Seasoning
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Roll out the pizza dough on well floured baking paper. Roll the dough out very thinly to a rough rectangular shape.
Spread the Pesto over the dough right to the edges and bake on a preheated pan for +- 7 minutes until the dough is nicely puffed and just beginning to colour on the edges. Remove it from the oven.
Sprinkle the cheese over the base. Dot sliced chorizo over the pizza. Season halved cherry tomatoes with Green Onion Seasoning and dot over the pizza. Tear fresh basil leaves and add some before and the rest after baking.
Bake for a further 10 minutes until base is nicely browned and crisp.
Cut into wedges with a pizza wheel.
