  • 2 Mini ciabattas or 1 large one
  • Jar of red or green pesto
  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • 1 Ball of mozzarella sliced into 12 slices
  • 3 or 4 Vine ripened tomatoes sliced
  • Garlic clove
  • Freshly ground pepper


  • Pre-heat the grill.
  • Slice the ciabattas in half lengthways (and in half again if using one large one).
  • Grill the outsides of the ciabattas on both sides until lightly toasted.
  • Rub a clove of garlic on the inner surface of the ciabattas.
  • Spread enough pesto onto each ciabatta to cover the surface.
  • Now put on alternate slices of tomato and mozzarella.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper.
  • Grill until the cheese has melted.


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