Pizza night here tonight. This was the standout.
There are two ways that you can do this.
1. Marinate the sardines in 2 tsp pesto and brush the pizza base with garlic oil.
2. Marinate the sardines in garlic oil and brush the pizza base with pesto.
On this occasion we did the first method.
5 fresh sardines or 10 fillets
about 20 cherry tomatoes
1/2 red capsicum, roasted and sliced
Grana padano cheese
Baby basil leaves
Squeeze of lemon juice
Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt. Leave for 20 mins. Splash with olive oil. Cook at 160C in an oven dish for 30-45 mins.
Brush the pizza base with garlic oil or pesto. Scatted with shredded mozzarella.
Place raw sardines evenly around pizza (they will cook on the pizza).
Place cherry tomatoes in the babes between the sardines. Grate some Grana padano cheese (or parmesan) on top.
Cook the pizza. We use a pizza stone and cook for about 10 mins at 220-230 C.
Squeeze lemon juice over the top and add baby basil leaves.
