Gruyere and scamorza flat bread pizza

This is another dish I threw together with what was already in the house. (To be fair though, usually when I go grocery shopping, if I see something interesting (like scamorza – smoked mozzarella) I’ll buy it with the intent to figure out what I will make later.)

For lunch I decided to make pizza. As I couldn’t be bothered to make pizza dough, I just used a large flat bread instead. I used a large pita bread… well more accurately a large white flour Lebanese bread that I bought at Waitrose (same one that can be bought EVERYWHERE).

Anyways I made it using: home-made tomato sauce, grated gruyere, scamorza, mushrooms, semi-dried tomatoes, and green olives.

 

Tomato sauce

Saute some chopped onions and garlic in a little butter. Then add in some chopped fresh tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Put in a squeeze or two of tomato paste and a splash of red wine. Then pour in a little boiling water and let the sauce reduce until almost all the liquid is gone. Then finish with a little truffle oil.

Building the pizza

Spread a thin layer of the tomato sauce all over the bread. Then spread a thin layer of the grated gruyere all over the pizza. Add sliced mushrooms, sliced olives, and semi-dried tomatoes. Then add small pieces of the scamorza all over the pizza.

Bake in the oven until everything is melty and the base is a little crisp.

Slice up and eat (with a salad).

Enjoy x
