Quick Ciabatta Pizzas are so quick & delicious. Toasted ciabatta is rubbed down with garlic, topped with pesto, sliced tomato and mozzarella for a really flavour packed lunch!
I keep a ball of mozzarella in the fridge most of the time as it is so versatile and can be made into a wide variety of meals. These Quick Ciabatta Pizzas were inspired by bruschetta and just kind of evolved. They always goes down well with the family and are great with a salad or a bowl of soup for lunch or a light supper.
How do you make Quick Ciabatta Pizzas?
After toasting the ciabattas (pictured are paninis which are not waxy enough) rub them with a clove of garlic.
Slather a generous amount of pesto onto each slice.
Then the mozzarella and tomato slices are laid on alternately before putting under the grill.
Grill until the mozzarella melts.

To make these pizzas lower in fat just use low fat mozzarella which works really well.
