Real Deal Pizzas - American Hot

These pizza bases are the real thing, made in the Le Marche region of Italy with long fermentation, then stone-baked with a brushing of passata, but any favourite pizza base will do.

Real Deal Pizzas - American Hot
 1 frozen organic thin and crispy stone baked pizza base (Waitrose)
 1 large tomato, sliced
 3 heaped tablespoons ready-grated mozzarella
 1 rounded tablespoon fresh ready-grated Parmesan
 75g hot pepperoni slices (Asda is good)
 5 pieces jalapeño pepper, from a jar, chopped
 10 pitted black Kalamata olives (Sainsbury’s or other)


Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 7, 220°C with a baking sheet. Place the pizza base on the hot baking sheet.

Now arrange the slices of tomato on top and season.

Next, sprinkle the two cheeses all over and place the pepperoni slices over that – covering the whole base apart from the edge.

Scatter the jalapeño pepper over and the olives, then on to a high shelf of the oven with it, for 15-18 minutes.
