Ingredients

  • wholemeal pizza base (or other type of healthier base)

Topping

  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2-3 tomatoes on vine
  • 100 g or more sliced mushrooms (any type you wish)
  • 2 low fat mozzarella balls (10% fat)
  • 5-8 black pitted olives
  • oregano
  • a handful of organic spinach leaves
  • pine nuts

Sauce

  • 1/2 red onion (chopped)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • a carton of passata or chopped tomatoes
  • oregano
  • marjoram
  • basil
  • rapeseed or olive oil
  • a pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Make tomato sauce first: fry red onion until soft first before adding chopped garlic. Add passata or organic chopped tomato and herbs. Cook until it thickens a bit (to spread it on a pizza base it shouldn't be too runny as it will make base soggy).
  • Brush the pizza bases with some olive oil (to prevent it from becoming soggy) and spread cooked tomato sauce on top.
  • Add sliced mozzarella cheese and the veg: mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, red onions.
  • Sprinkle the pizza with plenty of oregano.
  • Bake the pizza on 220 degrees for 10 minutes or less depending on your oven.
  • Just before the pizza is ready, add some pine nuts on top and roast them for a minute or two. Be careful though as they can go brown very quickly.
  • Once the pizza is ready, scatter over the spinach leaves and serve with a side salad.
