Pesto Pizza Loaf
Method
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise, but not all the way to through into 2 separate pieces. The edge should still be joined together. Open it like a book and score the inside of each side lengthwise. Place loaf in a baking pan, cut side down. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until it becomes crunchy.

For the pesto filling:

  • Puree all of the ingredients in a blender (apart from the parmesan).
  • When ready, add the parmesan and beat to combine.
  • Taste and adjust accordingly.
  • You may need to add a little more olive oil, depending on how much basil you add.
  • As soon as the bread is ready, remove from oven and set it aside to cool for 5 minutes. Spread the pesto sauce over the breads surface.
  • Chop the cherry tomatoes in half and spread them over the pesto sauce.
  • Cut the loaf in half, separating the 2 sides. Then cut each piece in half again, lengthwise. You should now have 8 equal sized pieces. Cut all the pieces in half again, diagonally, creating 8 triangular pieces.
  • Arrange the pieces on a plate in such a way that it resembles a pizza!
  • To serve, drizzle with some extra olive oil.
