    About this recipe: These are so simple and quick to prepare, yet they taste fantastic – almost as authentic as the real thing. They are ideal for a snack or a light meal with a fresh salad and some fruit to follow.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 large courgette, thinly sliced
    • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 large wholemeal baps, split open in half
    • 120 ml (4 fl oz) passata with onion and garlic
    • handful of fresh oregano leaves
    • 200 g (7 oz) mozzarella cheese, sliced
    • salt and pepper

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Preheat the grill to the hottest setting. Line the grill pan with a piece of foil. Put the courgette and pepper slices on the foil, sprinkle with the olive oil and toss together. Spread out the vegetables, then grill for about 5 minutes or until they begin to soften.
    2. Add the baps, laying them on top of the vegetables, crust sides uppermost, and toast lightly on the crust side. Remove the baps. Turn the vegetables and continue grilling them while you add the topping to the baps.
    3. Spread the untoasted cut side of each bap with passata, allowing it to soak into the bread. Add a few oregano leaves to each one, then arrange the grilled vegetables on top, sprinkling them with seasoning to taste. Lay the slices of mozzarella cheese over the vegetables.
    4. Put the bap pizzas back in the grill pan. Cook under the hot grill for 3–5 minutes or until the cheese melts and begins to brown. Serve immediately, while piping hot.

    Some more ideas

    *Use 6 patty pan squashes instead of the courgettes, and green pepper instead of the yellow pepper. *Tuck some other fresh herbs, such as basil or marjoram, under the vegetables. *For mushroom pizzas, use 300 g (10½ oz) sliced button mushrooms instead of the courgette and yellow pepper.

    Plus points

    *Peppers – green, yellow, red or other colours – are excellent sources of vitamin C, and red peppers are in a league of their own as a source of vitamin A from the beta-carotene they contain, providing 685 mg per 100 g (3½ oz). *Cheese is a good source of protein and calcium, as well as many of the B vitamins. Mozzarella contains less fat than many other cheeses – in 100 g (3½ oz) there are 21 g fat and 289 kcal, compared to 34 g fat and 412 kcal in the same weight of Cheddar.

    These look very tasty but I don't think they qualify as low fat. According to the BHF guidelines a tablespoon of Olive Oil is sufficient for 4 people and Mozarella comes under the high fat fat cheese category. - 23 Jul 2015
