Bread Pizzas

Here is perhaps one of the best ‘lazy’ foods there is: the bread pizza. It tastes kind of like pizza, but while it is clearly a completely different thing, it still tastes great. It is also incredibly easy to make, and you will almost always have all of these ingredients in your house anyway. It’s also one of those recipes where the power is all in your hands; you can add pretty much anything you want and it’ll still taste good. You can have it for lunch by yourself, but you can also just make them a bit smaller and serve them as an antipasto. 

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 tomatoes
  • 300g passata
  • 2 ciabatte (or any other kind of Italian bread of your choice)
  • vegan cheese
  • 5 leaves fresh basil
  • 10 olives
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

Preparation (20 minutes)

Preheat the oven to a medium high heat. Slice the ciabatte in half as if you were to make a sandwich and then lay all the pieces of bread next to each other on a baking tray, with the crusty side facing down. Add the passata evenly on all the pieces of bread. Slice the tomatoes and add a couple of slices to each piece of bread. Add the vegan cheese (must be meltable). Chop up the olives and fresh basil and add them to the bread. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Stick in the oven and leave to cook for about 10-15 minutes.

Tip: this is the perfect recipe to experiment with. The recipe above is only the basics, but it can be made a lot better. Try adding some chopped mushrooms, for example, or red peppers. Pretty much anything works, and you don’t have to do any cooking because the oven will do that for you! Chop up an aubergine and stick it on there. And why not try adding some cherry tomatoes? Hot peppers?
