- 1 x 400g chopped tomatoes
- 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- Sea Salt & black pepper
- 25g marjoram or oregano leaves
- 225g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp bread soda
- 200ml buttermilk
- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 pack Parma ham or similar air dried ham
- 2 x balls fresh mozzarella
- Handful of black olives
- First make the tomato sauce.
- Simmer the chopped tomatoes in a small pan along with the garlic until reduced and thickened. Add a pinch of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes and taste for seasoning. Add a few marjoram leaves and blitz roughly using a hand held blender. Don’t blitz until completely smooth as some texture is good. Leave to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 220C.
- Brush a large flat baking tray with olive oil.
- Sieve the flour and bread soda together into a large mixing bowl. Add a pinch of salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Finely chop half the marjoram and add to the flour.
- Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk.
- Use your hand shaped like a claw to draw the ingredients together in quick confident movements around the bowl. Handle as little and as lightly as possible. Once a soft dough has formed wash and dry your hands. Tip the dough onto a floured surface and gently roll into a rectangular shape as thinly as possible to fit the baking tray.
- Spread the tomato sauce onto the base leaving a thin border around the edges. Top with the parma ham, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and olives. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until golden and the cheese is melted. Scatter the remaining marjoram leaves on top.
