Crustless Pizza - Round Two and with Pretty Plates!

I know I have blogged Nigella's Crustless Pizza before but it really is delicious, frugal and so easy I make it regularly, and with some minor adaptions the last one was perfect!

Following the same base, I substituted the previous cherry tomatoes for a couple of diced up sundried tomatoes from a jar and they added such a lovely earthy, sweet tang to the mixture!

Serves two:

1 egg
100g plain flour
250ml milk
4 sundried tomatoes (in oil) finely chopped
Pinch salt
Butter for greasing
100g grated mature cheddar cheese 

Pre-heat your oven, 200/ gas 6/ fan 180

Lightly beat the egg with the flour, salt, slowly adding the milk to form a smooth batter and add 3/4 of the tomatoes and half of the cheese

Grease a large pie dish, pour in the batter, and bake for 30-35 minutes until just cooked through.

Top with the remaining cheese and tomatoes and return to the oven until the cheese has melted and is all lovely and golden brown. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes in the dish, it will make it easier to remove from the dish!

Slide onto your lovely new pizza plates and serve!

Good side dishes are something simple like rocket, dressed in a little of the oil left from the tomatoes and pine nuts. Or also on this occasion I pan fried courgettes, peppers, sundried tomatoes and seasoned with smoked paprika and served warm alongside. Delicious! (Apologies for awful picture - was taken under very bad lighting in previous flat!)

My new lovely 'Alessi Pummaroriella Piatti' Pizza Plates plates are from Red Candy, who have lots of lovely things to drool over on their website. They are just the right size for serving (or eating!) pizza on and 'feel' so nice to touch! They are made of fine porcelain but feel equally solid and I love them! The designs are both cute and funky and will make a great addition to your kitchen.

Many thanks to Ariane at Red Candy
