Children’s Choice Pizza

Serves 6

400g can tomatoes½ red pepper
Dried oregano200g canned artichoke hearts
1 pizza base45g black olives
50g sliced hamFresh basil


  1. Drain and chop the tomatoes.  Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan, add the tomatoes and a good pinch of oregano, and simmer until the mixture is slightly thickened.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C.  Brush the pizza base with a little olive oil, then spread the tomato sauce evenly over the surface.
  3. Cut the ham into strips; slice the pepper; quarter the artichoke hearts; and pit the olives.  Place these on the pizza base, then drizzle a little olive oil over the top.
  4. Bake the pizza until the crust is just crisp.  Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.

You can use many other toppings, such as sweet corn, fresh spinach, broccoli florets, aubergine or courgette slices (lightly fried), pineapple chunks, grated mozzarella cheese, canned tuna, strips of cooked chicken, or anchovy fillets.
Cut the pizza into pieces that the kids can handle.
