Home made Pizza

The trick is to make a good tomato sauce for the pizza base.

- 4 x tomatoes.
- 1tbs Tomatoe puree.
- a big dollop of tomato pesto
- mixed herbs.
- 2 tbs Olive oil.
- 50ml x water.
- 1 clove of garlic.

Reduce in a sauce pan for 15mins..

You can make or buy your own pizza base, its something that i haven't learned to do, but i would like to.

Spread the tomato sauce evenly (but not too heavily) over the pizza base.

Sprinkle liberally with mozarella cheese.

Place in the oven for 12 minutes.

Now, when it comes out, its ready to *serve*. Just add the 2 SPECIAL ingredients. Prosciutto Ham and Rocket leaves.

Place up to 10 strips of prosciutto / parma ham over the pizza. And then sprinkle Rocket leaves over that (lots of it). I like rocket leaves there is something quite rustic and peppery about the flavour and smell.

Finally, sprinkle some sea salt & ground pepper and your ready to eat. trust me its simply gorgeous. :)
