There's no need for all that kneading and rising with these speedy pitta pizzas. Get kids involved by letting them pick their own toppings.

Prep Time:
10 minutes, plus 1 hour defrosting time

Cook Time:
10-12 minutes

Serves: 4

250g frozen mixed peppers

4 wholemeal pittas

175g Italian double concentrate tomato purée

200g closed cup white mushrooms, brushed clean and sliced

125g medium British Cheddar, grated

100g tinned sweetcorn kernels, drained

1/2 x 335g pack cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/2 iceberg lettuce, shredded


1. Set aside the frozen mixed peppers for 1 hour to defrost, then pat dry with kitchen paper.

2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.

3. Pop the pittas in a toaster for a minute then let cool. Using a knife, cut the lightly toasted pittas in half horizontally and put on a large baking tray, cut-side down. Spread the tomato purée over the pitta halves, then top with the mushrooms, Cheddar, sweetcorn, tomatoes and defrosted peppers.

4. Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Serve two pitta halves per person, topped with the shredded iceberg lettuce.
