  • Nothing beats a classic pepperoni pizza, and with added mushrooms and olives this dish is far healthier than shop-bought pizza.


    • 1 sheet of shortcrust pastry, thawed
    • 45ml (3tbsp) tomato puree or pizza sauce
    • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
    • 75g (3oz) salami or pepperoni, sliced
    • 50g (2oz) button mushrooms, sliced or quartered
    • 8 black olives
    • 100g (4oz) mozzarella, grated or sliced
    • Beaten egg to glaze


    • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.

    • Unroll the pastry sheet and lay it on a baking sheet. Brush around the edges with the beaten egg and roll the edge over all the way round to make a rim.

    • Spread the centre of the pastry with puree and then top with the other ingredients.

    • Bake for 18-20 mines until the pastry is golden and the cheese has melted.

    • Serve hot with salad.
