Piquant Pizza with Goat’s Cheese, Chorizo and Chillies
for a Great Midweek Supper
I have been playing with my food, well, my Monday Meal Plan actually……only two days into the week and already I am swapping meals and days around….I LOVE to break the rules! Tonight’s meal was pasta, on the plan that is, but I fancied pizza, so pizza it was, and I have to tell you that it was DELICIOUS……and so easy – a pizza made with ready-made and ready to cook pizza bases and then it was just a matter of piling on the toppings and baking for ten minutes…….as well as using some of my Capricorn Challenge ingredients, from my Capricorn Hamper. Ethel will be proud of me I think, as my pizza had SEVERAL of the ingredients that were sent to me in it……tomatoes, red onion, pizza base, fresh thyme, olive oil and the GOAT’S CHEESE of course. I then threw on some spicy chorizo sausage slices, as well as some green chillies from a jar that has been languishing at the back of the fridge for a while.
From start to finish it only took me fifteen minutes to assemble and bake…..and then all I had to do was rustle up a nice big salad and we were away. Obviously, this pizza could have any number of toppings on it, but I used my Capricorn ingredients as well as a bit of chorizo sausage that was lurking on the fridge, and the afore-mentioned green chillies…..so, at last the fridge is looking less crowded! The pizza base was NOT as good as my home-made pizza, but, it is handy to have these ready-made bases in the store cupboard, mainly for those days when time is at a premium in the kitchen…..as mine was tonight. I thought the pizza I made was rather good-looking too……in a pizza-ish kind of way!
This makes a very quick and easy supper dish for midweek, and you can adapt the ingredients to suit who is at your dinner table…..with the chillies and chorizo being ditched if you have non-spicy diners. As I believe this to be a VERY family friendly meal, I am submitting to Family Friendly Fridays, which this month is being hosted my lovely friend, Solange over at Pebble Soup. I am also submitting to this to my own Herbs on Saturday recipe sharing event, as I have used Thyme in this recipe……if you have any recipes with herbs in them, PLEASE DO add your recipe to my event here: Herbs on Saturday June Challenge………and there is a lovely copy of Jekka’s Complete Herb Book up for grabs for the best recipe, as judged by a mystery judge at the end of the month!
That’s it for now, I still have LOTS to share with you this week, cakes, fish, sandwiches, book reviews, Festival press releases etc……..so, I may be looking for MORE easy supper recipes to make! Have a great evening and see you tomorrow, Karen.
