So today we're going to whip up a really easy pizza sauce. And then make a couple of different pizzas. Because we can. Here's what you'll need for the sauce....
Squirt about a tablespoon of Gourmet Garden Basil and Chunky Garlic into a bowl,
along with a tablespoon of your favourite sauce.
At our place that happens to be good old BBQ,
but at your place it might be tomato or even tomato paste.
If you like your sauce to have a bit of a kick to it,
you could also add a tablespoon of this...
We kept our sauce chilli free tonight....
Mix your sauce together and then spread it out over your pizza base.
Because I'm on a bit of a health kick at the moment,
I use wholemeal lebanese bread as my pizza base
but you can use any old base that you like.
Or maybe whip up your own base.
If you have the time. Or the inclination.
I have neither.
Anyho, spread the pizza sauce over your base....
Sprinkle some finely chopped mushrooms over the sauce
(finely chopping them is the key to hiding them from the kiddos)
Add some chopped tomato
and a small sprinkling of pizza cheese.
Tear up about 3 slices of prosciutto (or ham, or bacon)
and top with another heavier load of cheese.
Whack it in the oven for about 15 minutes,
until the cheese has melted and it bubbling away nicely...
Look at that!
Another easy family friendly, herb packed, veggie loaded meal.
In under 20 minutes.
But wait...there's more...
Herby Pizza Wheels!
I've been making these pizza wheels for years now.
The kids love them and they're great as an afternoon snack or a lunch box filler.
You can also pack them full of veggies and the kids will never know.
Here's how you whip up your own at home....
Spread your Basil, Chunky Garlic & BBQ sauce mixture over a sheet of defrosted puff pastry.
Add your mushrooms, tomato and prosciutto
(or leave the meat out if you're a vegetarian)
Sprinkle about 1/4 cup pizza cheese over the top
and commence rolling that baby up...
keep rolling until there's nothing left to roll and transfer it to a cutting board.
slice your roll into 1cm thick pieces
and transfer to a lined baking tray.
Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, at 200 degrees.
Today marks the end of the first round of the Blog Off/Cook Off. Thanks so much, lovely readers, for your support this week. I've had a great time introducing you all to a small selection of my meals using the Gourmet Garden herbs and reading all of your comments on the blog and over on my Facebook has been fantastic! Thanks to Gourmet Garden for giving me this opportunity and for supplying me with such wonderful products. It's been totes awesome ;)
Now if you don't mind, I have some hardcore finger and toe crossing to do.
Because I'd really love to make it to the next round.
