Makes 16 mini pizzas

Ingredients

For the dough:

For the topping:

  • 130g passata

  • 4 slices of mature cheese

  • 32 sliced green or black olives
* Available at Holland & Barrett

Method

Step 1
To make the dough, heat the milk in a small saucepan until warm.

Step 2
Turn off the heat and sprinkle in the caster sugar and yeast. Set aside until required.

Step 3
In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free bread flour, xanthan gum, salt and bicarbonate of soda.

Step 4
Mix well and then add in the egg.

Step 5
Work this into the dry mixture a little, and then gradually pour in the yeasty milk mixture. Mix the dough until well combined.

Step 6
Shape into a ball and place in a clean bowl, cover with cling film and leave for 1.5 hours to rise. Once the dough is ready, it should be puffed up and soft to touch.

Step 7
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan.

Step 8
Using a rolling pin, on a floured work surface, roll the dough to about the thickness of a £1 coin.

Step 9
Use an 8cm round cookie cutter to stamp out 16 mini pizza bases and then transfer these to two baking trays.

Step 10
Place 1 teaspoon of passata into the centre of each pizza base and smooth around, leaving a little space around the edge. Once they are all coated, bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden.

Step 11
While the bases are cooking, prepare the cheese ‘bandages’: trim the cheese slices until they are approximately 8cm in length, and then cut into matchstick-width strips. They need to be thin as they spread when melted.

Step 12
Once the bases are cooked, carefully lay 2 olive slices on each to look like eyes and then lay 4-5 strips of cheese over the base at jaunty angles to look like bandages.

Step 13
Return to the oven for 30 seconds only, just to melt the cheese. Transfer onto a platter and serve immediately.
