Donna Hay: Basics To Brilliance Kids

Looking for a healthy, homemade substitute for traditional pizza? Try Donna's recipe using Lebanese bread! 


  • 2 large Lebanese flatbreads (wholemeal optional)

  • 12 cherry tomatoes 

  • ½ cup (125ml) tomato puree (passata)

  • 180g drained bocconcini or mozzarella, torn

  • 2/3 cup (50g) finely grated parmesan

  • 2 tablespoons torn basil or oregano leaves


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F). Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

  • 2.

    Place the flatbreads on the prepared trays.

  • 3.

    Using a small sharp knife, carefully make a little cut in each tomato and, holding it over a bowl, gently squish to remove the seeds and excess juice (it’s a good idea to wear an apron for this part). Tear the tomatoes in half and set aside. Discard the seeds and juice.

  • 4.

    Using the back of a spoon, spread the puree over each flatbread until it’s almost all the way to the edges. Divide the torn tomato and bocconcini between the pizza bases.

  • 5.

    Sprinkle the pizzas with the parmesan and top with the basil. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melty and golden and the base is crisp.

  • 6.

    Wearing oven gloves, carefully remove the pizzas from the oven and allow them to cool on the trays for 5 minutes. Slide the pizzas onto a chopping board and, using a sharp knife or pizza wheel, slice to serve.
