I’m a Taurus, which apparently means I’m more than likely to become hangry if I’m left without food long enough. I’m not often like this, but when I am all I want is food, and quickly.
With the cold nights drawing in, I’ve also been craving some really hot food to keep me cosy. My easy peasy pizza recipe is perfect for a quick lunch, or a dinner. It can even be paired with my sweet potato wedges (coming soon…) for a real treat.
All you need is a tortilla wrap, some pesto, and any veg you can get your hands on! Simples!
I was very excited to discover that ASDA now stock a lactose free mozzarella which I would 100% recommend as it tastes/melts exactly the same as the good stuff.
So here’s the simple recipe, which can easily be adapted to suit the contents of your fridge, or to use up the leftovers:
(The recipe is based on one person/pizza)
1 tortilla wrap (the multi-seeded ones are fab!)
3 tablespoons of sundried tomato pesto (can be exchanged for green pesto/tomato puree)
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 red pepper
handful of plum tomatoes, halved
four olives, halved
1 ball of lactose free mozzarella
1.Heat the oven up to 190 degrees, and prep a baking tray. If you’ve got a pizza baking tray, fab, if not you can just use a normal one, or a bit of tinfoil.
2. Put the wrap on the baking tray, and dollop on the pesto, or alternative, spreading it around evenly so the wrap is covered.
3. Wash the spinach leaves and spread them around on top, covering the pesto.
4. Chop the mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, and pepper. Spread these all out on top, making sure the pizza is even (it’ll cook quicker). You can also add tuna/cooked meats to the pizza, but I made mine vegetarian.
5. Slice the mozzarella length ways, and arrange on top of the vegetables.
6. Put in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the edges of the wrap are crisp, and the mozzarella and veg are cooked.
Voila! So simple, so quick, so yummy!
It’s especially good seen as most pizza dough takes an age to make, and this one is so much healthier. If you’re having friends over, why not buy mini wraps and make a selection of different pizzas to share? Or each put toppings on your own wrap? This recipe is so adaptable it can suit anyone.
Let me know how you make yours!
