A pizza topped with tomato purée, tomato slices and melted cheese


  • 4 crumpets
  • 4 tablespoons tomato purée
  • 4 tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs
  • 40g reduced-fat hard cheese, grated
  • 1 pinch of ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the grill. Toast the undersides of the crumpets until crispy – about 2 minutes.


    Try using wholemeal pitta breads as a change from crumpets. Just skip grilling the underside.

  2. Remove from the grill, flip the crumpets over and spread each with 1 teaspoon of tomato purée. Arrange the sliced tomatoes on top and grill for 2 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle the herbs and cheese evenly over the crumpets, season with pepper to taste, and grill until the cheese melts and bubbles – another minute or so. Serve at once.


    Add a little chopped cooked ham, chopped cooked chicken or extra vegetables, such as sliced peppers, courgette or mushrooms on the crumpets before sprinkling with the cheese.
