Fig, Mozzarella and Prosciutto Pizza

And so it begins, the weekend is finally here and I am celebrating the best way I know how, by slicing myself up with a tasty new treat.

As you know I do not normally cook on a Friday, who does, but with a beauty like this, it would be hard to resist to not cook, especially when it takes no time at all to make. 

So, here is the thing I am trying to be healthy and now that I am working out and it being summer, I want to eat a bit better, whilst you may think pizza is not the way, it can so be with these pizza bases from Magioni

We think pizza, we think a whole lotta of the good stuff in the form of cheese, loaded with meat and little veg, but it so does not have to be that way and why not start from the bottom up. Magioni who have recently launched here in the UK from Holland have a great selection of veggie pizza bases which you can find here and here

Using a veggie pizza base is a great way to get in some extra goodness into our bodies and we can clock up in no time our 5 a day, plus it is a great way to fool the kids who are fussy about eating vegetables, as you really can not tell in the taste.

When thinking about toppings for pizza, especially when making it I like to think about what is in season, so I can get all its freshness and add something a little different and August is the perfect time of year for figs, they are big, woody and juicy, combined with mozzarella, prosciutto a drizzle of honey your tastes buds are literally blown away and it is one of my favourite pizza combinations. 

With a few great ingredients, just 6! You do not feel like your slaving away, meaning more time spent with your feet up and catching up with loved ones, plus it is a great way to get the kids helping out in the kitchen, with adult supervision of course. 

Magioni Courgette Pizza (or any you fancy)

2. Spread on your tomato sauce on top of your pizza base, stopping an inch away from the edge.

3. arrange your torn mozzarella on top, followed by your figs sliced and sliced prosciutto and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, once out drizzle your honey over, slice up and share 

How do you like your pizza served? Have you tried any of the Magioni pizza bases?
