Pesto Pizzas

I made this pizza ages ago for my sister and friend and it was a huge hit, but of course I forgot to take a photo! This one I made using a ready made pizza base which was nowhere near as good, but the flavours were delicious. I swapped the Gorgonzola for dolcelate on the second go too as I found that Gorgonzola doesn't taste of anything once cooked.

Pesto Pizzas (from Leiths Simple Cookery)
(Makes 1 large or 2 small pizzas)
(13 WW ProPoints per serving)

1 145g packet of pizza mix
3 tbsp pesto
85g sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
60g Gorgonzola cheese
60g light mozzarella cheese
3 slices parma ham
handful rocket

Preheat the oven to 220C.

Make up the pizza dough following the instructions on the packet. If making more than 1 pizza divide the dough into 2. Roll the dough into a circle, place on a non stick baking sheet and leave to rise in a warm place for 20 mins.

Layer the tomatoes and cheeses over the top and cover loosely with the ham. Drizzle over a little of the tomato oil and season with pepper.

Bake in the oven for 15- 20 mins.

Remove the pizzas from the oven and place a large handful of rocket on top of the pizza. Serve.
