I make this recepie quite often - it's nice and easy to do, and doesn't take too long (you can have it ready to cook in under half an hour if you're quick)
Pizza for one
This makes a smallish pizza, about 5" by 9".
150g Cibatta bread mix
Small glass of water
About a teaspoon of olive oil
A teaspoon or two of tomato puree
Half a ball of mozarella
Herbs and spices (oregano, basil, garlic, paprika, pepper... if it smells good, try it)
Toppings (pick one, or make up your own):
1 pack of chargrilled chicken bits
1 tin of tuna and half a tin of sweetcorn
4 slices of ham and 2 pineapple rings
Put the bread mix in a mixing bowl, add the water a little at a time and mix to form a ball of dough. Mix in a little olive oil as well if you've got some. If it turns into a sticky mess you've put too much water in, so add a bit more of your bread mix.
Roll out the dough on a small board to whatever size your baking dish/tray is (mine's about 5 inches by 9 inches). Once your base is rolled to shape put the oven on to 200°C or so (that's probably gas 7) and leave it to heat up- it'll be ready once you're done with the toppings. Put a layer of baking paper (not Sainsbury's "baking parchement") on your tray/dish to stop it sticking, and place the base on top.
Add a layer of tomato puree, then your toppings. Drain the water/oil from tinned foods like tuna and sweetcorn, cut up large things like slices of ham and pineapple rings, and lay it out however you like. Chop the mozarella into smallish pieces and sprinkle on top. Add whatever herbs and spices you like the smell of (basil, oregano and garlic always work), grind some pepper on top, and drizzle with some more olive oil.
Give it 15 minutes or so in the oven. When it's done lift the pizza off the baking paper, grind a bit more pepper on top, and enjoy (om nom nom nom...)
