Children will love these perfectly proportioned pizzas and they make a great TV dinner served with coleslaw or salad. Saucisson sec is a tasty French salami-style sausage available on deli counters but if preferred you can use slices of pepperoni sausage or cooked and chopped cocktail sausages instead. Add some canned sweetcorn, sliced button mushrooms or chopped red or green pepper to each pizza to boost the veg content. If you’re short on time simply use halved English muffins, mini pitta breads or slices of French bread as the pizza bases.


  • 2 x145g packets pizza base mix
  • 6tbsp tomato and basil pizza topping
  • 100g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 100g saucisson sec, thinly sliced
