Pizza in just 5 minutes



Do you ever have those days when you have about 5 minutes to prepare dinner for the kids after arriving home from late afternoon activities? Or maybe afternoons where you forget about dinner and only remember when the toddler starts throwing himself on the floor in a last ditch attempt to be fed? (or is that just me?) I have a solution…

We went to a friends for the afternoon at the weekend – and they taught us the cleverest tip for preparing pizza in 5 minutes. It really does take 5 minutes from cupboard to plate – and the best bit is that it’s absolutely delicious (we enjoyed this meal for lunch yesterday when the kids weren’t even at home) and it’s much healthier than the average pizza too, with a light, crispy base that makes the whole pizza just over 100 calories.

Here’s what you need to buy and do:


Pack of Tortilla Wraps
Bottle of Tomato Passata
Grated Cheddar Cheese
Toppings (we used ham and cherry tomatoes, but the options are endless)
Italian Herb Seasoning (optional)


1. Spread the Tomato Passata generously over the Tortilla Wrap

2. Sprinkle Grated Cheddar Cheese over the top

3. Add toppings and optional seasoning

4. Pop in the oven on medium heat for 4-5 minutes

5. Eat







Ella and Stanley tuck in

I am planning to freeze a pack of tortillas (my sister reliably informs me that they easily peel apart once frozen) and keep a bottle of passata in the cupboard at all times. That way, I can prepare a meal in a few minutes if I have nothing ready or if a friend decides to stay for tea. The range of toppings is endless (blue cheese was a winner yesterday for the adults – I’ll be trying tuna and sweetcorn for Stanley next).

So voila, a meal in minutes! Let me know if you try it.
