Honestly, this is way better than a supermarket pizza (even a rather good supermarket pizza) and you haven’t paid a fiver for it. It’s ready in less time than it takes to heat up the oven. ‘Nduja is a chilli-hot pork paste from Calabria. You can get it from Ocado or in a good Italian deli.
Prep time: 5 minutes | Cooking time: 5 minutes
- 75g mozzarella
- 2 slices sourdough bread (or another bread)
- 1 roasted pepper, cut into strips
- 1 small garlic clove, grated to a purée
- 4 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
- A little dried oregano
- About 10g ’nduja, or more if you want
- Olive oil, for brushing
- Take the mozzarella out of the fridge in advance – if it’s very cold, it’s hard to get it to melt. Slice the mozzarella and lay it out on one of the pieces of bread, then season it. Top with the pepper strips, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and oregano.
- Break the ’nduja into pieces and dot them around the topping, smearing it a little so that it is well distributed. Put the other slice of bread on top. Brush both sides of the sandwich with olive oil.
- Heat a frying pan (or griddle pan) then place the sandwich in it. Cook it over a medium heat for about three minutes, then turn the sandwich over and cook it on the other side for about two minutes.
- While you’re cooking, press down on the sandwich every so often with a plate (or something else that’s suitable) to flatten it. Be careful not to burn the outside – adjust the heat as you need to. Serve immediately.
