Serves 4-6
Prep time: 35min
Cook time: 10min

1. First, make the pizza sauce. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion for 8-10 minutes, until very soft. Add the herbs and tomatoes and fry for another few minutes, then add the vegetable stock. Heat and simmer for 18-20 minutes.

2. Puree in a blender, or use a hand-held stick blender. Adjust the seasoning, adding balsamic vinegar, caster sugar, salt and black pepper, to taste. Set aside to cool.

3. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C. Gas Mark 5. Put 4-6 mini pizza bases onto a baking sheet. Spread the tomato sauce on top and sprinkle with herbs. Add sliced tomatoes, baby plum or cherry tomatoes, if wished, then scatter the grated cheese on top. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Serve whilst warm.

Cook’s tip: Make plenty of sauce so that you have some to hand next time you rustle up these pizzas. The sauce will keep in a screw-topped jar in the fridge for up to 5 days, or it will freeze for up to 3 months.
