  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the meatballs on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 mins. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-7 mins until starting to soften. Remove and set aside.
  3. Place the pizza bases on 2 large baking trays lined with baking paper. Combine the passata, garlic and Italian seasoning in a bowl season with black pepper. Spread the passata over each base.
  4. Scatter over the mozzarella and top with the onions. Break the meatballs into large chunks and top each pizza with the meatballs. Place in the oven for around 10-12 mins until the bases are golden and crisp and the cheese has melted.
  5. Remove from the oven, drizzle with a little extra-olive oil and scatter over the basil. Enjoy immediately.
