Sometimes we are a little late getting home and it’s already fifteen minutes past the girls’ mealtime and that’s when I know I’m really in trouble! On Sunday it was one of those times so I looked in the fridge and there they were, two pizza bases – my favourite spelt ones from Biona. I had an open jar of passata, a few slices of ham, mushrooms and some wonderfully tasty mature cheddar from Abel & Cole that I’d bought for the first time last week.
With little time to lose I then fully cheated and turned the oven to grill instead of bake. This delivered me pizza within 10 minutes as I didn’t even have to wait for the oven to heat up. Even better was the bases didn’t get too hot so the girls could eat the pizza pretty much straight away. I left the parents pizza in the oven a bit longer for fully hot bases.
This grilling of pizzas is a brilliant emergency option for getting hungry little mouths fed, pronto – although I’m sure the health and safety people wouldn’t recommend it.
