½ clove garlic—minced (crushed)
3 tablespoons chopped canned tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 store-bought pre-baked pizza crust (about 12-inches in diameter and preferably thin crust). Alternatively use a large whole grain pita bread as the crust.

¼ red pepper (capsicum)—thinly sliced
¼ green pepper—thinly sliced
2 mushrooms—thinly sliced
1 frankfurter—sliced into thin rounds
3 anchovy fillets—roughly chopped
6 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 the pizza crust. ARRANGE the onion, peppers, mushrooms, frankfurter slices, anchovies and olives evenly over the pizza crust. PLACE the cubed cheese evenly on top. PLACE the pizza directly on the oven rack and cook for 10 minutes. CUT into 6 slices to serve.
