Servings: Change Serving



Preheat the oven to 240º C.

Line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Lay the flatbreads onto the tray. For the Spanish-style pizzas, spread the paste over the base, stopping just shy of the edge and scatter over a handful of mozzarella. Top with sliced chorizo, red peppers and tomatoes, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

For the Four cheese pizzas, start with a layer of mozzarella, followed by small chunks of gorgonzola and teaspoon sized dollops of mascarpone. Finish with a grating of parmesan and freshly ground black pepper. Bake the pizzas for about 8 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden. Spoon a little basil pesto over the four cheese pizzas  and finish with fresh basil. For the Spanish version, add avocado and fresh rocket. Slice into quarters or roll up, wrap style and apply to face.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
