Canberra Centre Masthead

As the title might give away, this is my absolute favourite pizza – it’s so quick and easy and tastes light, fresh and divine.

This size is perfect for lunch, or if you’re watching your waistline…but if you want to treat yourself, upsize to a larger flatbread base (or a ready made pizza base) and add more topping!

Serves 1: 324 calories

what you need

1 pita bread

olive oil spray

40g bocconcini – torn or sliced into smallish pieces

2 slices of prosciutto

a handful of baby rocket

½ tsp extra Virgin Olive Oil

a squeeze of lemon

freshly ground black pepper

what to do

Preheat the oven to 250C degrees (230C degrees fan forced)

Spray the pita bread with some olive oil spray and season with freshly ground black pepper.

Arrange the bocconcini on the pizza base, and pop in the oven  for around 8 minutes, or until the base is golden and cheese is melted.

Tear the prosciutto into smaller (more easily biteable!) pieces.

Place the rocket in a small bowl and drizzle with oil. Add a squeeze of lemon and some freshly ground black pepper. Toss to combine.

Take the pizza out of the oven and cut into four. Top with prosciutto and rocket.

Eat… Enjoy… Yum!

  • Yum-o! Pita and lebanese breads in general make excellent pizza bases, they are a staple in our house and pizza is a very popular Friday night meal. My favourite at the moment is to thinly slice zucchini lengthwise and toss it with a little olive oil, oregano and lemon juice. Spread the base with a little tomato sauce, arrange the zucchini over it, top with some crumbled feta and bake. When it comes out of the oven scatter over some torn mint leaves. Super healthy and very delicious.
