But, why not give this 30 minutes easy flat bread pizza recipe a try? It’s less than half the calories of a standard pizza! Plus, you could swap your normal weekly pizza treat for this one, saving you those calories. And cost too!
Like I said above, we like a pizza (especially on a Saturday) as much as the next person.
But, if I’ve been cooking, photographing and writing for the blog all day, then I just want something easy I can put in the oven.
I’m too tired to go the whole way of making pizza sauce then waiting for the dough to prove like in my original homemade pizza recipe. That recipe’s great, but only when I’ve got more time!
No, this 30 minutes easy flatbread pizza recipe is perfect for those busy Saturday’s. And that’s exactly why I came up with this recipe.
Cirio sent me some free samples of their amazing pizzassimo pizza sauce, which is just perfect for the full flavoured tasty tomato sauce base, which I what I used here. It saved the time from having to make my own sauce is it’s already got a perfect blend of herbs and tomatoes in it!

Can you believe it’s August next week?
Where has the time gone?
Saying that, I’m glad it’s August as Lady Lynne and I are off in a weekend’s time for some hillwalking. We’re staying at the same place in Braemar that Mike and I stayed in, but probably climbing Loch Nagar. One night’s dinner at the Braemar Lodge is planned too! Can’t wait!
Then at the end of August, we head off to Cornwall so August is likely to completely fly by too. Just like July!
Oh, I’ve been putting together a post to provide you folks with more details of the 80/20 lifestyle we live by, as I said I would. That’ll begin to explain how we’re able to do and afford all these things. The way that works for us for a happy and fulfilling life. That’ll be out on Tuesday.
