Lazy Pizza (Fernanda, São Paulo)

I’ve learned during lockdown, and is amazingly delicious, crispy and light, depending on what you add on top


  • 2 large lebanese flatbreads (wholemeal optional)
  • 12 cherry tomatoes (sweet as can be)
  • ½ cup (125ML) tomato puree (passata)
  • 180G drained bocconcini or mozzarella, torn
  • ⅔ cup (50G) finely grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons torn basil or oregano leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F). Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Place the flatbreads on the prepared trays.
  3. Using a small sharp knife, carefully make a little cut in each tomato and, holding it over a
    bowl, gently squish to remove the seeds and excess juice (it’s a good idea to wear an
    apron for this part). Tear the tomatoes in half and set aside. Discard the seeds and juice.
  4. Using the back of a spoon, spread the puree over each flatbread until it’s almost all the
    way to the edges. Divide the torn tomato and bocconcini between the pizza bases.
  5. Sprinkle the pizzas with the parmesan and top with the basil. Bake for 10 minutes or until
    the cheese is melty and golden and the base is crisp. 
  6. Wearing oven gloves, carefully remove the pizzas from the oven and allow them to cool
    on the trays for 5 minutes. Slide the pizzas onto a chopping board and, using a sharp
    knife or pizza wheel, slice to serve.

Serves 3–4
