Recipe // Cherry Tomato Pizza
I can’t take credit for this recipe or even attempting it, but it was just so delicious so I had to share!
My sister-in-law always cooks for us on Raksha Bhandan (a special day celebrating the bond between brothers and sisters), and this time, she served us this flatbread/pizza. She enjoyed it during her travels and wanted to re-create her own version.
Now, depending on how much time you have and how much prep work you can manage, this recipe can use quite a few ready-to-go ingredients or cook up many of them from scratch, too.
Mini Pizzas (either use pita bread, frozen pizzas or homemade)
Tomato Sauce (again, use store-bought or homemade)
Mild Cheddar Cheese + Mozzarella (if you'd like to mix it up and have 2 options) (shredded)
Arugula/Rocket Leaves (washed and coarsely torn)
Cherry Tomatoes (washed and halved)
Ripe-ish Avocados (sliced)
Once more, depending on how many items you’re making from scratch (and for the sake of keeping this post on the shorter side, I'm skipping to this step), once the pizzas are half-baked, here's what's next:
Spread a good layer of the tomato sauce on the pizza base
Sprinkle the shredded cheese(s)
Place the cherry tomatoes on top of the cheese (don’t overload them)
Sprinkle the black pepper on top (to taste)
Place in the oven until cheese melts
Sprinkle the arugula and place the avocados on top
Serve and DEVOUR!
That’s it! You can of course try your own variations, but this combination is tried and tested, and it’s a winner in our house! Everyone asked for seconds the next day! And having the pizzas in the mini form, it's a nice personal touch and lets you enjoy the whole thing to yourself - ha!
My photos don’t display the avocados because I’m slightly allergic - I know, bummer!
Also, if you go down the route of making everything from scratch, then your ingredient list will of course include tomatoes, garlic, onions, salt (for the sauce) and flour and yeast (for the pizzas).
