People have been eating pizza for hundreds of years, so why mess with the classics? This is a very easy to make version of a traditional combination and you'll be amazed at how good it is.
|Probably the world's greatest food.|
- Pita bread - 60c
- 1 tablespoon of tomato paste - 70c
- 80g of salami - $1.20
- 1 tomato - 40c
- a few olives - 30c
- a handful of grated tasty cheese - 50c
- 1 tablespoon
- 1 knife
- 1 chopping board
- 1 grater
- 1 baking tray or pizza tray
This is so simple I'm sure I don't need to explain each step so instead I'll give a few tips.
After spreading sauce over the base (the pita bread), sprinkle a small amount of grated cheese so the toppings stick to the base.
When sprinkling cheese over the top, make sure it goes right to the crust, reaching closer to the edge than the other ingredients. That way, when you cut the pizza, the toppings won't separate from the base and slide off.
Buy a block of cheese and grate it. The pre-shredded cheese has a powder on it to keep it from sticking together, but it also stops it cooking together and binding with other ingredients.
Slice the pizza on a wooden chopping board and separate the slices. This will prevent the pizza from getting soggy or oily.
To reheat pizza, microwave it on a piece of cardboard and keep the slices separated.
- Place some fresh basil leaves on the cooked pizza and drizzle with a little olive oil.
- Give the pizza some attitude with anchovies, chilli and green capsicum (green peppers).
