Pizza Pasta

This cross between pizza and a pasta dish is becoming a firm favourite in the Be Strong community, and one that the whole family will gladly tuck into.

It’s a really simple midweek meal that can also be batch cooked and frozen for those nights when you just don’t want to cook, or you’re just too busy. Bursting with your favourite pizza flavours, tomatoes, cheese, pepperoni, peppers, basil and garlic, this will be one the family will look forward to again and again. You could mix it up by adding your own favourite pizza flavours, just adjust the calories – mushrooms, olives, prawns or tuna, perhaps. The world is your oyster with this dish!
