Fancy an easy night with a home-made with pizza and salad?
Finely chop the onion and cut the tomatoes into small chunks.
Heat the olive oil in a casserole and fry the onions for approx. 3 minutes until light golden brown. Add the chopped tomatoes and herbs and bring the sauce to the boil whilst stirring all the time. Cover the pan and leave the sauce to simmer for approx. 10 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 220°C (hot air oven).
Cut the Turkish loaves horizontally in two and put them on two baking trays with the open side upwards. Spread the fresh tomato sauce over the four halved loaves and spread evenly. Sprinkle the ‘pizzas’ with the cheese and slide the trays into the oven. Bake the pizzas for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
Serve immediately and enjoy with a simple fresh garden side salad.
