  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Cut the baguette into 4, then split each piece lengthways to create 8 halves. Place on 2 baking trays.
  2. Mix together the tomato purée, passata, garlic and chopped basil until well combined, then spread some over each baguette half.
  3. Top with the onion, pepper, chorizo and mozzarella, dividing them equally across the baguettes. Bake for 12 mins or until the mozzarella has melted and is just turning golden. Season with black pepper and scatter with a few basil leaves to serve.
