Frying Pan

Food Processor

Pizza Stone (optional)


The Sauce

Step 1

Use either a food mixer or handheld blender to blend the tomatoes, tomato puree, and garlic until smooth.

Step 2

Stir in the remaining dry ingredients and adjust salt level to preference.


Every tin of tomatoes is different, even when high quality. If the sauce tastes a little tart, a small pinch of sugar can help neutralize the acidity but be careful to not make it too sweet.

The Cook

Step 1

Turn your oven on using the fan setting and heat it to 200C.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a pan on medium heat. Add the minced garlic and fry for 1-2 mins or until fragrant

Step 3

Cut the baguettes into 30cm halves and press them as flat as possible.

Step 4

Spoon the garlic butter onto the baguettes and add a thin layer of grated mozzarella.

Step 5

Place the baguettes into the oven and cook for about 3-5 minutes. At this point, we just want to lightly melt the cheese until it covers and sticks to the bread.

Step 6

Remove the baguettes from the oven and layer the sauce on top of the melted cheese. This first layer of melted cheese prevents the sauce from soaking into the bread and leaves us with a texture closer to real pizza. Add the final layer of grated mozzarella on top of the sauce along with the parmesan.

Step 7

Place the now topped baguettes back in the oven and cook for about 8-10 mins.


Brushing the uncovered edges of the baguettes with olive oil will help prevent them from burning.

Step 8

Once the cheese has fully melted and is starting to brown in spots, remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy!
