  4. Pop two baking trays in the hot oven to preheat.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons of tomato passata or barbecue sauce on top of each pizza base and sprinkle with a pinch of dried herbs if using.
  6. Scatter the mozzarella and cheddar evenly over the pizza bases and top with a combination of the extra toppings.
  7. Take the hot baking trays out of the oven and quickly brush with a little oil.
  8. Put 2 pizzas onto each hot baking tray and cook in the hot oven for 8-12 minutes until golden and bubbling.
  9. Repeat with the remaining 2 pizzas.
  10. Serve immediately.

They also really encourage fussy eaters to try new things and are a fab idea for children’s parties.
