These can be ready in minutes if you have the ingredients on hand and heck, get your weekend guests to assemble their own pizza so you don’t have to do all the work!

1 can crushed tomatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tbsp fresh (or 1 teaspoon dried) herbs – thyme, rosemary, parsley, oregano

1 x packet Lebanese breads

Topping options:

sausage/bacon/salami/prawns

grated cheese (can be mozzarella, cheddar, feta…)

sliced mushrooms

capsicum, diced

chunks of pineapple

olives

spinach or rocket

1. In a pot, make a simple tomato-based sauce; simmer crushed tomato, olive oil and herbs for 10 minutes or until it thickens slightly.

2. While this cooks, turn oven to 220 C, bake or fanbake.

3. Place flatbread on tray. Spread over a few tablespoons of the sauce. Top with a a handful of grated cheese then whatever other ingredients you’re using for topping. NOTE: you don’t need very much cheese, most people put too much cheese on a pizza!

4. Cook in a hot oven (220°C) for 10 mins until crust is golden and topping is cooked. Sprinkle over fresh rocket or spinach leaves, slice and eat!
