CRUMPET PIZZAS 

INGREDIENTS 

6 crumpets  

4 tbsp. Passata  

4 tbsp. ketchup

½  tsp dried oregano  

toppings of your choice (peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, sweetcorn,  olives, ham and basil all work well)  

75g grated cheese  

METHOD 

Heat the grill to high.  

Lightly toast the crumpets in a toaster or under the grill.  

Meanwhile, mix the passata, ketchup and oregano together in a bowl. Season.  

Chop your chosen toppings into small pieces – young children can tear basil, or  chop soft veg in a cup using safety scissors.  

Line a baking tray with foil.  

Spread the sauce over the crumpets, then top with the veg and cheese.  Arrange on the tray and grill for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese is golden and  bubbling.  

Leave to cool slightly before eating.
