Ingredients

  • 4 pitta breads

For the sauce

  • 400 g can high quality tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

Toppings

  • 2 tomatoes
  • 200 g cheese ideally mozarella but I used cheddar
  • 50 g olives sliced

Instructions

  • Pre heat the oven to 200C

To make the sauce in the ThermoCook

  • Put the canned tomatoes, garlic, salt, sugar and herbs into the ThermoCook
  • Process on 'Smoothie' for 30 seconds until all the ingredients are blended
  • Set to 90C, speed 2 for 10 minutes

To make the sauce on the stove

  • Blend the tomatoes with the garlic, salt, sugar and herbs
  • Pour into a pan and simmer for 10 minutes

To Assemble

  • To make the Quick and Easy Pitta Pizzas, spread the sauce on the Pitta Pizzas (there is more than enough sauce for 8 pizzas, so you can freeze half for another time if you don't use it all)
  • Top with sliced fresh tomatoes, cheese and olives (or toppings of your choice)
  • Place on a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbling.

Notes

If you don't have a Thermocook, you can make the sauce in a saucepan on the stove top, following the same instructions. 
Serve with salad and coleslaw or if you are really hungry, cook some oven chips while you are making the sauce and they will be ready at the same time as the Pitta Pizzas.
