Margherita with Onion and Chilli Pizza

While there is only two of us eating pizza tonight we both like to come up with our own creations and always make two pizzas.
Noel tends to try and keep his toppings basic but I have to say that they are always full of flavour and super yummy.  Adding onion, chilli and oregano to his Margherita put such a different spin on the good old cheese and tomato pizza that everyone loves.
I do have to admit one thing though - my man is getting really good at making pizza bases.

Margherita with Onion and Chilli Pizza

Serves: 4
One serve of Noel's Pizza Base or pizza base of your choice
cooking spray
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 brown onion, sliced
1/2 bunch of fresh basil, leaves removed
8 bambino Bocconcini balls
2 teaspoons chilli flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Preheat pizza oven or oven to 220 degrees C.

Spray pizza tray with cooking spray.

Stretch pizza dough on to the pizza tray or place pita bread on the pizza tray.

Mix tomato paste with garlic.  Spread tomato paste all over the base.

Top with  onion and basil leaves. Place Bocconcini evenly over pizza and sprinkle with chilli flakes and oregano.l

Cook in oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and is cooked through.
