Serves4

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • 4 tbsp tomato purée
  • 180g passata
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped basil, plus extra leaves to serve
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 80g chorizo slices, chopped
  • 150g pack mozzarella, drained and sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Cut the baguette into 4, then split each piece lengthways to create 8 halves. Place on 2 baking trays.
  2. Mix together the tomato purée, passata, garlic and chopped basil until well combined, then spread some over each baguette half.
  3. Top with the onion, pepper, chorizo and mozzarella, dividing them equally across the baguettes. Bake for 12 mins or until the mozzarella has melted and is just turning golden. Season with black pepper and scatter with a few basil leaves to serve.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have any red onions try using white, brown or spring onions
