Making Pizzas with Pizza Express Passata


We love making pizza.  The children enjoy getting creative with the ingredients and have fun being involved in cooking their dinner.  So when we were sent a can of Pizza Express Passata to test, we decided to get busy in the kitchen with the kids!

The Passata is the same as the one used in Pizza Express restaurants.  Juicy, sweet sun ripened tomatoes are harvested in Parma, Italy.  They are crushed within 12 hours of picking and  combined with basil,  and a pinch of salt and pepper to create a delicious, rich passata full of freshness and flavour.  It is a versatile ingredient, but for me, nothing beats a home-made pizza!

Spread the passata onto a pizza base.
Nice and thick.

Sprinkle over grated mozzarella.
Add your topping.

Cook at GM6 for 15 minutes.
Slice.
Serve
The passata on the pizza was really rich and tasty.  It had such a deep tomato-ey flavour and was well seasoned.  It was really delicious and at 99p a can, it is an inexpensive taste of luxury.  One can covered four pizza bases generously!  The children had fun helping out in the kitchen and they enjoyed their pizzas!

  2. My mouth is really watering looking at those fantastic pizzas, which I am sure taste as good as they look. It's great that Kizzy participated with the preparation.
