Snowman Polenta Pizza

This is a super easy Christmas time snack for all the family.

Recipe

Base:

400ml Vegetable Stock

100g Polenta

2 tbsp grated parmesan

2 tbsp olive oil

Sauce:

2 tbsp olive oil

1 clove crushed garlic

200g passata

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp basil

1/2 tsp oregano

pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Topping:

3-4 large chestnut mushrooms

1-2 balls of mozzarella sliced 1cm thick

Whole black olives (cut the ends off for the eyes)

1 small carrot cut into tiny strips

Method:

Add the oil to a large pan and fry off the garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the passata, tomato paste, sugar, salt, pepper, basil and oregano. Stir to combine and cook on simmer for 15 mins.

Turn on your oven to 200 fan.

In a sauce pan bring the stock to the boil then slowly add the polenta while whisking constantly. Once all the polenta is mixed in add 2 tbsp of the parmesan cheese and stir in to combine, about 3 minutes.

Grease a baking tray with oil, pour in the polenta and pat it out to about 1cm thick. If it is sticking to the spoon too much just wait 5 minutes until it is cool and you can pat with your hands to the desired thickness and leave to chill.

Once chilled use a round cookie cutter to cut out your bases. Add the sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms, carrot, black olives or whatever topping you desire to create a snowman face.

Pop them in the oven for around 10 minutes until the cheese has started to melt. Serve and enjoy!

Please note: If you are serving to young children you will want to cut it into small pieces as the cheese becomes hard as it cools.
