Mozzarella and tomato toasties make the easiest open pizzas topped with melted cheese, tomatoes and pesto. It’s a really quick lunch to make for the kids and it’s so easy, they can even you help you make it! All you need is a handful of ingredients, but feel free to mix and match with any leftovers you have in your fridge – in fact, think of them as a pizza. Anything goes!

Ingredients

  • 1 ready-to-bake ciabatta loaf
  • 4tbsp fresh pesto
  • 125g mozzarella pearls, drained
  • 14-16 cherry tomatoes
  • handful of fresh basil leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil to drizzle over

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Cook the ciabatta loaf according to packet instructions (8-10 mins). Trim the ends off the bread and cut in half vertically and then horizontally to make 4 pieces, or however many slices you like.

  • Spread the soft side with pesto. Cut the cheese pearls and cherry tomatoes in half and pop on top of the toasted bread.

  • Cook under a hot grill for 3-5 mins or until the cheese is melting nicely. Scatter with fresh basil leaves, freshly ground black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
