Leek and gorgonzola pizza

I used to always make my own pizza bases when making pizza. Now I rarely do. Mostly it’s a time thing — we tend to eat pizza on a tired weeknight when we can’t think of what else to have.

Luckily, our nearby gourmet supermarket sells some good quality, pre-made wood fired pizza bases. Not perfect, and not quite as good as home-made, but still good enough if you are short on time.

For this pizza: slice and wash the leeks, and cook slowly for about 15 minutes with olive oil, chopped chilli, spring onion and garlic until sweet and sticky. You don’t need to add salt as the gorgonzola is very salty.

Spread over the pizza base, crumble over gorgonzola, and bake in a very hot oven for about 10 minutes. The sweet leeks and salty gorgonzola are a great combination.
