Pizza Base
  • 1/4 jar marinara pasta sauce
  • 1/2teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2teaspoon minced garlic
  • black cracked pepper
  • 1oz shredded Parmesan cheese– equiv. 1/4 cup packed
  • 2oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2oz pepperoni– sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/ 180°C (fan forced) or 375°F/ 190°C (conventional).
  2. Place all the pizza base ingredients into a food processor and blend to combine.
  3. Pour the thin batter/mixture into a lined circular baking tin (a cake tin will do the trick!) – we cooked it in a 9.5″ (24.5cm) tin. If you use a smaller tin your base will be slightly thicker, which also works fine.
  4. Place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, until lightly golden and springy when touched in the center. Remove from oven but leave in the cake tin.
  5. Combine tomato sauce, half the Parmesan cheese, basil, garlic, oregano and pepper in small bowl; spread tomato sauce evenly over the pizza base.
  6. Sprinkle pizza with mozzarella cheese then top with a layer of pepperoni.
  7. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
  8. Add another layer of pepperoni.
  9. Place in the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden.
  10. Slice up into pieces and enjoy!
