I’ve been really uninspired in the kitchen as of late and I’m ashamed to admit I’ve even pestered my husband to take us to the Drive-Thru on more than one occasion. Usually our cupboards are pretty well stocked with healthy food and most nights we eat home-cooked meals, but we’ve just been in a bit of a rut lately. Since starting my new job I’ve found myself reaching for sugary snacks a lot more often and I’ve definitely noticed an imbalance in my mood because of it. I’m also trying to ensure I’m sweating it out at the gym at least once a week so I need a health boost now more than ever. I cooked this pizza for the first time around a year ago when my cravings were going through the roof. I was broke, starving, and I really just wanted some comfort food. It’s super easy to make and only needs around 10-15 minutes in the oven so it’s literally perfect for when you need a quick food fix.
How To Make!
To recreate this pizza use a large Napolina pizza base and cover with any basic pasta sauce using the back of a spoon. (I use this one!) Sprinkle on some salt, pepper, chilli flakes, and italian seasoning, followed by some dairy free grated cheese. Violife Pizza Cheese is perfect for this, but this time I used Tesco’s Free From Mature Cheddar. Layer on some spinach leaves to cover the entire base, then top with red onion, chestnut mushrooms, and black olives. Finish with more cheese. Pop in the oven with a garlic bread baguette for 10-15 minutes, and you’re done! It’s really that easy!
The magic of homemade pizza is that you can customise it with your favourite toppings, I once put brussel sprouts on mine! Pizza making is also a great way to involve your kids in cooking, so with half-term coming up why not plan to get creative in the kitchen with your little ones?
