On weekday evenings, when I go straight to a gym class after work, I often get in quite late. On these days a super speedy dinner is in order.
I have to admit, I often resort to a big bowl of oats with their endless variations of toppings. Other times I might opt for a defrosted portion of one of my soups, (this one is my current favourite), or a bowl of cous-cous and veg.
Earlier this week I made pizza…the fasted pizza I’ve ever made! 10 minutes from first having the idea the pizza was on my plate ready to eat (ok, I had to allow for a 5 minutes photo shoot first!)
The pizza base is also gluten free as it is made using my flatbread dough, I simple made a larger flatbread to act as a pizza base. The original recipe made 4 small flatbreads but I doubled them up to make 2 larger pizza bases (in actual fact I halved the recipe to make a single serving).
I obviously haven’t used ‘cheese’ here, as I really don’t think it needs it. The tomato-hummous base is full of flavoursome. You could add some cheese/vegan cheese if you fancied when you pile the veg on top of the bases.
Recipe: Ten minute pizza (gluten free)
- 1 batch of flatbread dough (formed into two large rounds)
- 2 tbs tomato puree
- 2 tbs hummous
- Mix of vegetables for roasting (chopped small)- I used peppers, tomatoes, courgette, onion
- 1 tsp olive oil plus ½ tsp seasonings of choice
- Handful of sweetcorn and/or canned beans (defrost sweetcorn if frozen)
Prepare the pizza base dough according to the flatbread recipe - form into two larger pizza sized rounds.
Place the pizza bases on a lightly floured baking sheet under a pre-heated grill. Grill for 3-4 mins each side until lightly golden.
Prepare the vegetable for roasting and coat in the oil and seasoning mix. Spread it n a baking sheet and place in the oven for 5- 10minutes (depending on size of pieces) and roast until just cooked.
Briefly remove the pizza bases from the grill and spread with 1 tbs each of the tomato puree and hummous. Top with the roasted veg and add the sweetcorn/beans. Place back under the grill for 2-3 minutes to finish cooking.
Serve with a salad if you like.
Did that take 10 mins?....ok well maybe 15 tops!
