I used this topping on a family pizza using loads of diced up fresh tomatoes. A friend over for dinner said he would have paid good money if he could have ordered it in a cafe - high praise indeed. Nothing can ever be made for one in this household - too many combine harvesters lurking !!!

Love, love, love this simple personal pizza. The flavors are so pure and fresh. This recipe will be repeated many times. I used gluten-free pitas and vegan cheese (Daiya mozzarella) with great success. I'm craving another pizza right now!

I made 3 pieces using wholemeal/wholegrain pita bread, freshly plucked vine ripen tomatoes and fresh sweet basil from the garden and a pizza mix of cheese (mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar of which I sprinkled a little on top of the pizza before scattering the basil and 7 minutes later from a 200C fan forced oven we had a lovely lunch. Thank you Lori Mama, made for Everyday A Holiday.
