Ham, pepper and olive mini-pizzas



Ham, pepper and olive mini-pizzas
Split English muffins make a great crust for "mini" pizzas. These yummy pizzas taste especially good with a crisp salad on the side.

½ clove garlic—minced (crushed)
4 tablespoons chopped canned tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
3 English muffins (regular or whole grain)—split in half
2 ham slices—chopped into small pieces
1/3 red pepper (capsicum)—diced
1/3 green pepper—diced
8 pitted black olives—thinly sliced
2½ oz (75g) mozzarella cheese—cut into small cubes

PREHEAT the oven to 230°C/450°F. MIX together the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, salt and pepper. SPREAD a thin layer evenly over each muffin half. ARRANGE the ham, peppers and olives evenly over each muffin half. PLACE the cubed cheese evenly on top. PLACE the pizzas on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
