Missing pizza? Try these! Ok, so they’re not quite the same but they are very tasty, can be customised to your liking and certainly calm a grumbling tum. I love them.
You will need:
Wholemeal Bread (2 slices from a 400g loaf is a Healthy Extra B choice)
Fresh tomato sauce (See recipe here) or if stuck, some passata will work. If really, really stuck then tomato puree will do.
45g Mozzarella or 40g Reduced fat cheese (Healthy extra A choice or 6 syns)
Your favourite toppings! I like to use tuna, green pepper, sliced tomato, red onion, olives (1/2 syn for 4 olives) and a sprinkling of oregano. For some suggested alternatives, see below the recipe.
Pop the grill on to about half the max temperature.
Grate the cheese as finely as possible and then line a baking tray with foil. Spray the foil with Frylight and then lay the bread on top.
Toast the top side of the bread until golden.
Turn the bread over and lightly toast the second side. Remove the bread from the oven, and spread the lightly toasted side with the pizza sauce.
Layer the toppings and top with the cheese and dried oregano. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the top and return to the grill.
Toast until the cheese has melted and the toast is golden brown. Sprinkle the finished pizza toasts with some fresh herbs if you have them and serve.

Greek Style (One of my favourites)
Feta, sliced olives, green peppers and onion. I like to use half Healthy Extra A on feta and the other half of the healthy extra on mozzarella.
Good ol’ Margherita
Mozzarella and basil (fresh is best but dried will do)
Chopped ham, pineapple and mozzarella with a sprinkling of oregano.
Chopped ham, bacon (all visible fat removed), sliced onion, jalapenos and mozzarella.
Slices of green pepper, red pepper, tomato, red onion and mushrooms topped with mozzarella. Sliced olives optional, 4 olives for half a syn.
