Handful of mixed chillies chopped
3 courgettes sliced
1 pack of mixed peppers quartered
1 pack of baby aubergines sliced
1-2 balls of mozzarella roughly teared – optional
1 cup of black olives sliced
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp paprika
1 bottle of pesto – optional

Method

Pre heat oven to 180 degrees fan/ gas mark 6.

In a large tray marinate the courgettes, peppers, aubergine and onion with olive oil, season with herbs, paprika, salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile, brush the pittas with the passata or chopped tomatoes until based is covered.  Top the pittas with the roast vegetables, followed by olives, mozzarella and chillies. Place on a tray and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until browned and cooked.
