That’s right. I use nan as a base for pizza. I find the pizza bases at the supermarket too thick to use and prefer a flatter one. My solution was nan bread. I could always dial a pizza and have it delivered if I really wanted. I could also order online and collect it to save a few dollars but to make it yourself is better mostly always. I don’t make my own dough. I haven’t tried. I will get around to it. Sometimes you just want to have shortcuts after a busy day or you don’t feel like cooking. Once a week you need a Free Day. This is one of my Free Day Recipes.
mozzarella cheese, grated
onion, finely sliced
basil, fresh if possible otherwise dried
garlic, clove, hit once with the flat side of a knife
instant pizza sauce:
tomato sauce, enough to smear colour over the base
dash of Tabasco sauce
pinch of paprika
pinch of basil
pinch of oregano
little garlic paste (optional)
Preheat oven to fan-bake 180ºC (350ºF).
Mix the pizza sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
Rub the garlic clove all over the pizza base.
Smear the pizza sauce over the base thinly. Use the back of a spoon or a brush.
Sprinkle grated mozzarella cheese evenly over the base. As much or as little as you like.
Separate the onion rings and scatter them over the pizza.
Do the same with the tomato, mushroom and salami slices.
Lightly sprinkle more mozzarella cheese.
Add a touch of paprika and basil if dried.
Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
Check the oven before the timer is finished just in case your oven is hotter than mine.
If using fresh basil place on the pizza after it comes out of the oven.
When ready, cut with a pizza cutter and serve immediately.
Tip: When laying out your ingredients be mindful of where you will cut the pizza so that you get a piece of salami or tomato on each slice.
Have a pack of nan bread in the freezer so you can create your own pizza with leftovers in the fridge. Be creative with combinations. I made tandoori chicken with mushrooms and tomatoes. Another one was ham and pineapple and onions and olives. All good fun.
