An old favourite, this Margherita pizza is testament to why the classics are always the best...
Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 1 x pre-made pizza base
- 100g mozzarella cheese, sliced or grated
- 10 large basil leaves, torn
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 tin tomatoes
- 1 anchovy fillet
- olive oil
1. Pre-make the tomato sauce by sweating down the onion and garlic with the anchovy, once cooked add the tin tomatoes, cook out for a further 15 minutes, set aside.
2. Place the pizza stone on the grill and preheat the BBQ with the hood down to 200 degrees.
3. Meanwhile, prepare the pizza. Spread the base with the sauce, evenly place the cheese on the sauce, season and drizzle olive oil all over.
4. Cook on the stone with the hood closed for around 15 minutes until the cheese melts and the base is crispy.
