Hands up who loves a pizza on a Friday night?
Just as I suspected. Everyone
(If you didn’t put your hands up, you’re dead to me)
And what’s better than a pepperoni pizza? Nothing!Except maybe this:
And what’s better than this recipe for Pepperoni, Mozzarella and Mint Pizza? Absolutely nothing! Although The Gaylords come a very close second.
I adapted this recipe from My Table: Food for Entertaining by Pete Evans, mainly just to make it a bit quicker. I’m far too lazy to make pizza dough on a Friday night so my base of choice is pita bread and I use a bought tomato paste mixed with some garlic and herbs for the base. If you want to be entirely DIY, Pete’s recipe is here.
My quick version is here:
This is so good – the combination of the pepper mix and the mint just lift this out of normal pizza realm into a taste sensation that wil get your tastebuds dancing just like the hipster groovers in the photo below.
And if that plain old thing got them going, I guess my version would have had them doing a bit of this…

Just not this…
Yep, this is Friday night perfection on a plate!
Yay, it’s Christmas! I’ll celebrate with a very special cocktail next time round.
Have a great week!
