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.

Sal’s Tips For Cook Yourself Thin Pizza

1. Alternative toppings could include canned tuna, sweetcorn, courgette, parma ham or spring onions.

2. You could also use olive oil instead of balsamic vinegar to season the pizzas once cooked, and wholemeal instead of white pitta breads.

Worst Cooking Disaster:

Every so often, egg based recipes give me a hard time… eggs aren’t always obedient!

Last Supper:

“6 snails with real baguette, then sirloin steak and proper french fries with bearnaise sauce (free range cow that I’ve butchered myself), followed by Vacherin cheese and single truffle. Washed down with some seriously wowee wines… what a great way to go!”

She spent her childhood surfing and enjoying the beaches and perfect climate in San Diego. When she was 15 she became a fashion model. She spent 10 years traveling the world on modeling assignments.

But Candice always felt she was meant for something more special and rewarding, and she wanted it to revolve around two of her favorite things: cooking and bringing others together through the social aspects of food.

Part Japanese and part Polish, Candice learned the essentials of her family’s food traditions from her mom and grandmothers. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Interpersonal Communications at California State University Long Beach.
