How to Cook Pepperoni and Parmesan Pitta Pizzas
1. Preheat a conventional oven to 220ºC or a fan-assisted one to 200ºC. Run a sharp knife 1cm in from the edge of each pitta bread and follow the outline to remove the top layer of bread and create a border for the pizzas.
2. Place the pittas directly onto the top shelf of the oven and cook for two minutes to crisp up.
3. Meanwhile, place the chopped tomatoes in a sieve to remove all the excess juice. Divide the tomatoes among the pittas and spread out evenly.
4. Sprinkle each with the sugar and chilli powder. Top with the sundried tomatoes, pepperoni, red onion, pepper and olives. Sprinkle over the parmesan and dot the ricotta on top.
5. Bake the pittas directly on the oven shelf for eight minutes or until cooked. Serve immediately, scattered with the basil and rocket leaves and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
