How to make Red Pepper and Eggplant Pizza


A really simply pizza made from a pre-made pizza base (should be able to buy these from any supermarket). Would have been way nicer with a fresh base but this saves loads of time and is still surprisingly fun to make - a good dish to make in company.

  1. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and fry together the garlic and onion to soften.

  2. When browned add the eggplant and red pepper, toss together in the oil and garlic, add a touch of balsamic, season and cover for 10 - 15 mins on a low heat so that all the vegetables are nice and soft.

  3. Spread the pasta sauce thinly on your pizza base and give it a little sprinkling with some extra oregano. Spread your vegetables evenly across the base. Dot with the mozzarella cubes and quartered tomatoes. Make sure the cheese is evenly distributed to ensure a nice even layer when it all melts.

  4. Drizzle with olive oil and give it a good grinding of black pepper. Hot oven (220C), 15 mins or until the cheese has melted and gone a lovely golden colour in places.

  5. Decorate with fresh basil leaves. Cut and serve!

    "moist" seems like such a strange way to describe a pizza...
