You’ve probably guessed that if you’re looking for gourmet cuisine you’re unlikely to find it here. This was the product of a late night in the office and the poor choice of vegetarian options. I just didn’t want to cook and couldn’t afford a take-away, but still wanted to be a bit creative.
So I bought a couple of margherita pizzas and a jar of cheap green pesto (yes, I could of made it but I really couldn’t be bothered). I had some cherry tomatoes and a red onion so I halved thee tomatoes and chopped then onion finely. To ‘assemble’ the dish I spooned a few dollops of pesto over the pizza then scattered the onion and tomato across the top. I then lightly drizzled some extra virgin olive oil onto it and bunged it in a preheated oven using the time and temperature from the packet.
The result was that the basic cheese and tomato pizza was a whole load more interesting and packed with flavour – definitely worth the few pennies more it cost and the extra five minutes or so it took to prepare.
