1 Tbsp coconut/rapeseed oil (a healthier alternative to olive and vegetable oils)
1 large onion
3 large cloves of garlic
Freshly chopped chillies
1 Tbsp of tomato puree
400g of tomato passata
Fresh basil and oregano to season
1 packet of Warburtons gluten free seeded wraps
1 packet of sliced chorizo
1 large red onion, sliced
1 bag of baby spinach
1 bag of mozzarella
1 bag of rocket
1 packet of baby plum tomatoes, sliced in half
Fresh basil and pepper to season
1. Heat oil in a large pan.
2. Dice the onions, chilli and garlic into small piece and fry until it browns.
3. Add the tomato passata, tomato puree and herbs and simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes.
4. Turn on the grill and toast both side of the wrap until it is firm. Place the toasted wraps on a wire rack and leave to cool.
5. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce evenly over the base so it is covering as much of the edges as possible. Then top with baby spinach leaves.
6. Place the chorizo slices around the edges of the pizza, covering as much of the wrap as you can to ensure it doesn’t burn under the grill.
7. Top with red onion, mozzarella and baby plum tomatoes.
8. Place under the grill and leave for 5-7 minutes or until the edges of the chorizo have gone crispy and the cheese has melted.
Serve with a large rocket salad.
Tips from SJ:
- I’m not gluten intolerant but I recommend using the Warburtons gluten free seeded wraps as a base because it retains it’s firmness and resembles pizza more than a wholemeal one.
- Cook pizzas on a wire rack, this will ensure that the air can circulate underneath and the base won’t get soggy.
- Try not to overload the pizza as it can be troublesome getting it from the rack to the plate in one piece.
- Put the spinach underneath the topping to ensure that the it doesn’t dry out and burn under the grill.
- Put the chorizo slices over the edges to ensure they don’t burn under the grill.
- Check on the pizza frequently, it’s better to have it on a lower heat rather than blasting it on a high heat as they can burn very quickly.
- One pizza may seem small but it can be very filling, I would recommend 1-1.5 pizzas per person.
