Why wouldn’t you cheat when the end result is as tasty and delicious as this Caprese pizza? Using oven-roasted mini tortillas as the base and topping with sliced mozzarella, basil and tomatoes, gives delicious, authentic taste, and is wonderfully cheap. Plus, it’s on the table in 20 minutes, perfect for a weeknight supper.  

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the tortillas on 2 large baking sheets lined with nonstick baking paper and spread with the tomato purée.

  2. Arrange the mozzarella slices and tomatoes on top of the tortilla. Bake in the oven for
 6-8 mins, until the cheese has melted and the edges of the tortillas are golden.

  3. Meanwhile, blitz the pine nuts, most of the basil leaves, garlic, oil and hard cheese in a food processor to make a pesto.

  4. Remove the pizzas from the oven, spoon over the pesto and garnish with the remaining basil leaves. Serve immediately.
