When the moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie...

This was delicious  - and easy - so easy.
The ridiculously, lazy cook in me is going to make it even easier next time, by buying a ready made pastry case.

I almost opted to use a bolognese sauce instead of the chopped tomatoes, but I'm glad I didn't. Having the firmer texture of the tomatoes meant that everything held together really well.

Pizza Pie.
Ready rolled sheet shortcrust pastry.
2 large onions, thinly sliced
Garlic      1 tbsp herbs
2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
50g sliced pepperoni
100g mozarella
50g anchovy fillets
Olives. (black ones would look better, but Mr. Kiss  likes the green ones, so that's what I went with)

Preheat the oven to 190C ( 170C Fan)
Use the pastry to line a 23cm loose bottomed tart dish. Chill for 30 minutes

Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with rice or baking beans and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove rice/beans and paper, and bake for another 5 minutes.

Heat some oil and cook the onions til soft. Add the garlic.
Strain the tomatoes through a sieve and add the herbs to the chopped tomatoes.
Spread the onions on the pastry and top with the pepperoni.
Add the chopped tomatoes and half the cheese.
Top with anchovies and olives and the remainder of the cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes.
