Salami and Tomato Pizza

Once again I offer up apologies - due to my ever increasing work load lately with some travel required I have become complacent with sharing our culinary adventures with you all.  It's not because I didn't want to as I have missed my blogging and am truly saddened by not being able to partake in my hobby but as per usual that doesn't mean that we haven't been cooking - of course we have!  So now it's going to be catch up time with some meals we have enjoyed recently.

This was a simple pizza.  A tomato and garlic base with low fat hot salami (but you can use mild if you prefer), cherry tomatoes and a few other vegetables.... voila - mouthfuls of flavour that were not only very fresh but also very tasty.  Better than a take away pizza that's for sure.....
