What we put on our pizza:

- tomato sauce (as much as you like, just don't soak the dough)
- mushrooms (we love mushrooms on pizza)
- ham (or any other meat you would like)
- red pepper (red, because it's nice and sweet)
- top it with shredded mozzarella 
- some pickles (sounds strange but it's good!)
- basil

Throw it in a preheated oven for about 20-25 min and you have delicious, hot, crunchy homemade pizza.

Tasty Tuesday - Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
by Gordon Ramsay

These are truly the most delicious meatballs I have ever made, full of flavor!  My family loved them.  They are perfect with pasta or would even make a tasty meatball sandwich.  Enjoy!


For the meatballs:
  • 1,6 lb good quality ground meat
  • 1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 oz white breadcrumbs
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • olive oil 

For the tomato sauce:
  • 1 1/2 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6 fl oz white wine
  • 2 x 14 oz cans chopped tomatoes
  • 5 fl oz water 
  • 1-2 tsp sugar
  • olive oil


  1. Mix the meat, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, cheese and chopped parsley together in a bowl until combined. Season well and add the beaten egg to bind, mixing with your hands. 
  2. With damp hands, shape the mixture into about 16 meatballs, trying not to press them too tightly. Place on a large plate, cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. To make the tomato sauce, heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and garlic and fry gently until lightly golden. Increase the heat slightly and pour in the wine. Let it bubble until reduced by half, then stir in the tomatoes, water and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft, then remove from the heat.
  4. To cook the meatballs, heat the olive oil in a large, wide pan. Add the chilled meatballs and fry, turning frequently, until browned all over.
  5. Pour the tomato sauce over them and simmer for a further 10-15 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through.
