English pizza muffins

English pizza muffins
Split toasted English muffins make good individual pizza bases when you’re in a hurry. And by topping them yourself you can sneak in some extra veggies…

1 tbsp olive oil

½ red onion, chopped

½ small red pepper, deseeded and diced

½ small yellow pepper, deseeded and diced

50g courgette, diced

50g brown mushrooms, diced

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme

1 tsp garlic purée

2 English muffins

4 tbsp passata

1 tbsp sundried tomato paste

30g Cheddar, grated

30g mozzarella, grated

Black olives, fresh basil leaves, mini mozzarella balls, pieces of red pepper, to decorate (optional)

Preheat the grill.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion, peppers, courgette and mushrooms for 8 minutes until soft and lightly golden brown. Add the thyme and garlic and fry for 1 minute.

Slice the muffins in half and arrange the halves on a baking sheet, cut side up.

Mix the passata and sundried tomato paste together and spread over the muffins.

Spoon over the mixed vegetables, then sprinkle the tops with the cheeses.

Grill for 4–5 minutes until the cheese has melted and is bubbling.

Decorate with food 'faces' before serving, if liked.
