Shakshuka pizza

Well, it’s a ‘kinda’ pizza, one without a base! A fusion of Middle Eastern and Italian flavours our Shakshuka Pizza is a gorgeous easy supper, ready in minutes, looking and tasting beautiful. To be honest you don’t need to measure much with a dish like this, you can’t go wrong with it. You can add other flavours such as paprika or cayenne to suit your taste, mess about with it. This one has chilli and mixed herbs for a spicy pizza vibe. The eggs take a while, that’s why you need a lid to trap the heat, it creates a bit of steam in there what with the milky mozzarella, but you can tip any excess liquid away. Beautiful with a vibrant green salad and crystal clear glass of iced water.
