Spring is finally here and I am VERY excited about that. This Easter weekend has had the nicest weather that I can ever remember over Easter. Bank Holidays are usually grey and dull, but it was actually warm. Although I didn’t get out of the house much this weekend (the deadline for all of the recipes for the HHH book is next week), we did enjoy a nice glass of wine out in the garden.
If you have overdone it a bit on the chocolate eggs this weekend, this pizza is a good way to get some extra vegetables in to your diet. I was pretty good with the chocolate this year. Dave bought me a small dark chocolate egg that we shared (I forgot to buy him one. I know, I am a bad wife.), and we made it last the whole weekend. I did totally forget to have a hot cross bun though, so I feel like I have failed at Easter a little this year.
You really can’t beat homemade pizza dough, but when you are short on time and have a pizza craving, that just isn’t an option. We usually always have tortillas or pitta breads on hand and they make really good pizza bases. You could even save yourself some more calories and cut the pitta in half and just use half for the base.
Instead of a tomato sauce on the base, I made a creamy mixture of yoghurt and ricotta, which went really well with the fresh spring vegetables. If you haven’t tried a white sauce like this on a pizza, give it a try. It makes a nice change.
Ingredients – Serves 2:
– 2 wholewheat pitta breads
– 4 tbsp 0% Greek yoghurt
– 2 tbsp ricotta cheese
– 4 ribbons of courgette (zuchinni)
– 2 asparagus spears, chopped
– 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
– 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced
– 2 tbsp parmesan
– A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
1) Mix together the Greek yoghurt, ricotta and salt and pepper and divide between the pitta breads.
2) Add the rest of the ingredients and put under the grill (broiler) for 10 minutes.
