When it comes to the perfect pizza, there's no combo more classic than melty mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. Add a dollop of basil pesto for extra herby flavour, and serve with salad. Deliziosa!

1 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 390°F/ Gas 6

Put a large baking tray (or two) in the oven to heat up (this will stop the pizza bottoms from going soggy!)

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

2 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Add the tomato paste to a bowl with the chopped garlic and a generous pinch of saltpepper and sugar

Add 5 tbsp [10 tbsp] cold water and give everything a good mix up – this is your tomato sauce

3 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Drain and pat the mozzarella dry with kitchen paper (squeeze as much liquid out as you can!)

Tear the drained mozzarella into rough, bite-sized pieces

4 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half

5 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Remove the heated tray[s] from the oven and add the pizza bases

Divide the tomato sauce between the pizza bases and spread it evenly all over them with the back of a spoon

6 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Top the pizza bases with the torn mozzarella and cherry tomatoes

Sprinkle over the dried oregano

Put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until the cheese has melted and the bases are crisp – these are your cherry tomato pizzas

7 Cherry Tomato & Homemade Basil Pesto Pizza

Meanwhile, chop the basil roughly

Add the chopped basil to a pestle & mortar with a pinch of salt and a splash of cold water and grind to a paste

Add the grated Italian hard cheese and 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil – this is your pesto

In a separate bowl, combine the white wine vinegar and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your dressing
