'Tomato whim' – cheese and tomato pizza


If making at home without a pizza oven, preheat a fan oven to 250°C
Stretch and shape one 250g ball of pizza dough into a disc, leaving the edges slightly thicker than the centre
Evenly distribute the mozzarella and Grana Padano all over the pizza
Arrange some sun-dried tomatoes and yellow plum tomatoes over the surface of the pizza and cook in the oven for about 90 seconds (or in the fan oven for 6–7 minutes)
Remove from the oven, drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil and serve with some more shavings of Grana Padano
