Eating In: Home-Made Pizza

I don't know why I don't have this type of dinner more often! It might not be pretty, but DAMN it's tasty. Not to mention the lovely smell in the house.

I was looking at a packet of wholemeal "Mountain Bread" at work today thinking "what on earth am I going to do to use this up?" I eyes roamed absently over the packet, when the word "pizza" jumped out at me. Hmm, yes, what a good idea.

Of course, the great thing about home-made pizza is that it can have exactly what you want on it. For me it's the merest swipe of tomato paste topped with capsicum, semi-dried tomatoes, pineapple and ham, with a smattering of cheese to finish it all off. In line with my "make a better me" resolve all ingredients were low fat, low salt, low sugar, etc. and as healthy as I could get them. And you know what - it still tasted awesome. The mountain bread was delightful - light, and crispy, and added a lovely ever-so-subtle flavour to everything else.

I cooked up two - one to eat tonight (which I've just finished, yummo!) and one for lunch tomorrow. It can't come soon enough!

Hi Cindy. Oh yes, so simple, so tasty, SO good! I have no idea why I don't do it more often.

Mel, if it makes you feel better, my morning tea is a tin of tuna :s and you know how I feel about fish! I'm off to Kenzan to have my first attempt at salmon at lunch - wish me luck!
