Friday Night Pizza

Just arrived in store at The Fresh Ingredient - Pizza Bases
I decided to test the new pizza bases this evening. Today I bought some garlicy chorizio from Bocados in King St, Newcastle - the smell is incredible. Thought that sweet potato, capsicum & baby spinach would work nicely with the chorizio.

1 herb & garlic pizza base
1 garlicy chorizio
1 tbs tomato paste
1 medium sweet potato
1/2 red capsicum
100g baby spinach leaves
2 tsp Wollombi Extra Virgin Olive Oil
50g mozzarella grated
50g tasty cheese grated
Norco Sour Cream

Pre-heat oven to 180C.
Peel & thinly slice the sweet potato, arrange in one layer on a baking tray, drizzle with 1tsp olive oil, bake for 10 mins or until just starting to crisp.
Char the skin of the capsicum on a gas burner, or under the grill. Place in plastic bag for 8-10mins, then rub off the scorched skin & slice capsicum thinly.
Spread tomato paste on pizza base.
Thinly slice chorizio, arrange on pizza base.
Arrange capsicum on top of chorizio.
Arrange roasted sweet potato on top of capsicum.
Heat 1tsp olive oil in non-stick frypan, add baby spinach & let spinach wilt, shake pan or stir a few times. Arrange on top of sweet potato.
Top pizza with mixed cheeses.
Bake for 10mins.

Serve topped with a dollop of Norco Sour Cream and a good Spanish wine such as 2009 "Elefante Castilla Vino Blanco"

  1. Snap - we had home-made pizza tonight too. That chorizo sounds amazing, I'll have to track it down...
