I don't normally make pizza because I'm always lacking in toppings I thought. Then I asked a friend what she was putting on her pizza and she said she just does tomato and cheese. And for her tomato she just whizzes up a can of tomatoes*. How simple is that? It's so liberating to know that I can do something that simple, because if she can, I can. So I tried it tonight, and it was good! I whizzed up a 400g can of tomatoes with a bit of salt, pepper and oregano in the blender, topped with chopped ham and grated cheese. I really could've gone without the ham though. Yum! And the kids liked it too! We had some cooked carrots on the side as well to ease the mother guilt.

So one can did two full tray sized pizzas nicely, but probably could do three.

*My friend said she also uses canned tomato soup or even plain old tomato sauce/ketchup when she's really going it easy.

The beauty of pizza is that you can use any kind of sauce you want. My current favorite is to carmelize a bunch of onions in olive oil and then once they're cooks to splash in some milk to make a cream sauce. I pour all of that over the dough and top is with thinly sliced pears. YUM!

Wow that just blew my mind! Onion and pear? Do you put any cheese on on top of that?
