And set aside for assembly.
To make the tomato
sauce mix the passata with the sugar and balsamic vinegar. Season
with a pinch of salt and now spread the tomato sauce onto the puff
pizza base. Place on the boilie goats cheese around the base and
in between place in the quartered cherry tomatoes. Place the pizza
back into the oven to heat through slightly and allow the cheese to
go soft for 4-5mins.

one side. Dress the leaves of the salad last second with a drizzle of
balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Place the salad to one
side and then lastly garnish the pizza with the baby basil leaves.

Tip: The toppings I
have used are a bit fancy but don’t be afraid to use the old classic
toppings such as cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, pineapple, anchovies,
pepperoni, mushrooms etc…
