Monster Red Nose Day pizza recipe

Monster Red Nose pizza recipe - Netmums:


Here's the recipe for the  
Red Nose Day Monster Red Nose Pizza
We've tweaked the recipe (developed by Gordon Ramsay to raise money for Comic Relief) and the artery clogging ingredients to make it a bit more suitable for optimum health.

The recipe is modelled on Honkus, one of the new range of three monster Noses on sale this year.


Recipe:

* 4 round wholemeal pitta bread to use as pizza bases
* 1 jar of tomato & roast vegetable sauce eg pasta sauce, mexican dips etc
* 6 cherry tomatoes
* 1 yellow pepper, deseeded
* Carrot sticks
* 1 pack of dairy free melting 'Cheese' - Redwoods, vegusto, Daiya
* 8 pitted black olives

Preheat the oven to 240°C (or 220°C for fan assisted oven) or Gas Mark 7.

Cut 8 slices of dairy free 'cheese' for the eyes, grate up the rest and scatter over the pita bread. Spread thinly with tomato sauce to cover the dairy free cheese.

Slice off the top third of the pepper (about 3cm wide) and cut out triangles for the teeth. Use thin cut carrot sticks to place it across the centre for the mouth, then arrange the 'teeth'.

Decorate each pizza with 2 slices of vegan cheese and an olive on top to make the eyes. Use a cherry tomato for the red nose's red nose. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and the edges are crisp.

serve your red nose day monster nose pizza with a red nose day salad with lots of your favourite green bits and some cherry tomato red noses.

Have a great Red Nose Day!
