French bread Pizza

French bread Pizza

Everyone works hard and leads a busy life and more and more people make sure they don't waste any food. It's the end of the week and what do I have in my cupboard to create a meal? I have leftover tomato juice, two types of grated cheese - left over from making sandwiches during the week, some cherry tomatoes, half a sad looking pepper and one onion. I look in the cupboard and I have a small French baguette left over from a couple of days ago. Bingo - I felt that I had enough ingredients to create a tasty pizza for me and my husband.

  2. Butter the French bread and grill both sides. Once grilled add the hot tomato mixture and top it up with cheese and cherry tomatoes. Only one of us eats onions so I added them as a topping to my slice of bread.

  3. Lightly grill all this until the cheese melts. Sprinkle some oregano and serve it hot with some crisps or doritos.
