Simple Pizza Recipe 

You have had a busy day and if you are anything like me then you don't want to spend ages slaving away in the kitchen preparing something delicious.

If you are looking for a simple, healthy, yet quick recipe then this is the one to go for. A wonderful fresh and sweet pizza which is; lets put it my way 'overwhelmingly scrumptious' you will be wanting to make more for sure !

Tomato and Rocket Pizza with olive tapenade 

100g Sweet Vine Tomatoes, halved
1 Pizza Base
2-3 tbsp Olive and Sun-dried Tomato Tapenade
1/2 small red onion, finely sliced
125g mozzarella, torn into pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
Handful of wild rocket
Shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano, to serve
Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle

First preheat the oven to 170c, gas mark 3. Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and cook until softened and starting to dry, but not browned (about 20 minutes).

After having taken the tomatoes out of the oven increase the temperature to 220c, gas mark 7. Place the pizza base onto a baking sheet and spread the tapenade over the base leaving a border around the edge, then add the tomatoes, onion and mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil.

Bake for roughly 8-10 minutes until the top is golden and bubbling and the base is crisp. Serve scattered with the parmigiano reggiano and rocket, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

I would suggest that you serve the pizza with a goats cheese and sun-dried tomato salad with honey dressing to add to the pizza's sweetness oh and don't forget a dashing of sea salt. This really worked for me in fact I am seriously craving more right now.

Full credit goes to Waitrose for another amazing recipe.
