You know those nights when you know you should eat, but you don’t feel like eating a ready-meal (this blog was written during a period when the UK food supply chain was full of pre-packaged meals that contained horse meat labelled as beef).
Luckily my Tesco Metro (a kind of mini-supermarket designed to render the art of cooking useless – but more of that some other time) is only a short walk away, so I took a few minutes to browse the isles for a quick, but not totally mindless meal.
The solution was the following.
From the supermarket…
- 1 Margarita pizza
- 1 Packet sliced chorizo
- 1 Jar artichoke hearts
- 1 Tin anchovy stuffed olives
Plus from the cupboard – dried chilli flakes, dried fried garlic.
- Pre-heat oven (follow instructions on pack. Circa 200 c)
- Open packets, jars, tins
- Lay out toppings on pizza
- Stick pizza in oven (follow instructions on pack. Circa 12 mins)
Serve with fresh basil (optional), your favourite quaff-able wine – McGuigan BIN 736 Shiraz Viognier in this case.
Happy with the result, but not happy with Tesco being out of stock on artichoke hearts, I added zucchini and fresh spring onions to the toppings instead.
