How to make a cheat’s Caprese Pizza

Ingredients

  • 4 mini tortillas
  • 20g (3/4oz) tomato purée
  • 2 x 125g pack mozzarella, drained and sliced
  • 250g (8 3/4oz) vine tomatoes, sliced into rounds
  • 20g (3/4oz) pine nuts
  • 1 x 30g pack basil, stalks discarded
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 20ml olive oil
  • 20g (3/4oz) Italian hard cheese, finely grated

Method

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the tortillas on 2 large baking sheets lined with nonstick baking paper and spread with the tomato purée.

Arrange the mozzarella slices and tomatoes on top of the tortilla. Bake in the oven for 6-8 mins, until the cheese has melted and the edges of the tortillas are golden.

Meanwhile, blitz the pine nuts, most of the basil leaves, garlic, oil and hard cheese in a food processor to make a pesto.
Remove the pizzas from the oven, spoon over the pesto and garnish with the remaining basil leaves. Serve immediately.
