Chili, Tomato and Spinach Pizza Recipe

Chili, Tomato and Spinach Pizza Recipes

Ingredients :

45ml tomato oil (from jar of sun dried tomatoes)

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1-2 red chilies, seeded and finely chopped

50g (drained weight) sun dried tomatoes in oil

400g chopped tomatoes

15ml tomato purée

175g spinach

1 ready made pizza base, 25-30cm

75g grated smoked Bavarian cheese

75g grated mature Cheddar Cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method :

Heat 30ml of the tomato oil in a pan, add the onion, garlic and chilies and fry then gently for about 5 minutes until they are soft. Roughly chop the sun dried tomatoes. Add to the pan with the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée and seasoning. Simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the tough stalks from the spinach and then wash the leaves in plenty of cold water. Drain them thoroughly and pat them dry with kitchen paper. Roughly chop the spinach leaves. Stir the chopped spinach into the tomato and chili sauce. Cook the sauce, stirring, for a further 5-10 minutes until the spinach has wilted and no excess moisture remains. Leave the sauce to cool.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425F, Gas 7. Brush the pizza base with the remaining tomato oil, then spoon over the sauce. Sprinkle with the two grated cheeses and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden. Serve immediately. A richly flavored topping with a hint of spice makes this simple and colorful pizza extremely satisfying.
