This has got to be one of my favourite things to eat for lunch. It's so super quick and easy but so unbelievably delicious. All you need is some bought flatbreads (for example pita bread), some cheese and tomato and in less than 10 minutes you have an amazing lunch. Of course just like any pizza you can change the toppings to whatever you like. In the middle of Summer I will quite often add some thin ribbons of Zucchini but for the most part I can't resist the classic and very simple Tomato and Mozzarella.
Quantities make 1 pizza
1 flatbread of your choice ( I use wholemeal pita's that are thin)
Extra virgin olive oil
½ tomato, roughly chopped
Fresh mozzarella, roughly chopped or torn apart
4 Kalamata olives, pitted and cut in half
½ fresh chilli, finely chopped (optional)
scattering of fresh basil leaves
Maldon sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
To make the pizza simply brush a little extra virgin olive oil over one side of the flatbread. Scatter over the chopped tomato, mozzarella, olives and chilli and then pop onto a baking tray and cook under a hot grill for a couple of minutes until the cheese has melted and is bubbling and the edges of the flat bread starting to crisp.
Sprinkle over a little Maldon salt, some cracked black pepper and the fresh basil leaves then if you like finish with a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and if you want to take it up another notch some really good quality balsamic vinegar. So easy but so good!
