Easy Ciabatta Pizzas

  • fin

This is more of a suggestion than a recipes really – if you don’t have goat cheese or would rather use mozzarella, then fine. Ham instead of salami, mushrooms instead of tomatoes, red onions instead of olives… just use what you have on hand. No need to buy pizza-topping sauce either; just use tomato paste (purée) and dried herbs.

Step By Step

IngredientsMix the tomato paste (purée), most of the oregano, the olive oil,and some salt and pepper in a bowl.  Crush the garlic and stir into the mixture.Preheat the broiler (grill).  Cut the bread in half lengthwise, then put onto a baking sheet, cut side up.  Put under the broiler for 2 minutes or until pale golden.  Spread the sauce over the bread, making sure that you go all the way to the edges.Slice or crumble the goat cheese and slice the tomatoes.Arrange the cheese, tomatoes, salami and olives over the bread without overlapping too much- that way everything will get a good blast from the heat of the boiler. Try and cover the edges of the bread too, so they don't singe. Sprinkle with a little more oregano and some black pepper, then drizzle with oil to help everything meld together.Broil (grill) the pizzas for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese, tomatoes, and salami are starting to turn golden.  Serve with a scattering of arugula (rocket) or parsley leaves and a fresh salad.
