Fast "pizza” baguette

Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 persons

  • 1 baguette
  • 4 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 red pepper
  • the green part of two spring onions
  • 190 g tinned maize
  • 225 g tinned tuna
  • 120 g grated cheese (Zelene Doline Edam or Zelene Doline Gouda)
  • seasoning of preference (oregano, thyme, basil)

Preparation

Line a baking tray with baking parchment and set the oven to 190 °C. Cut the baguette lengthwise in half and place both halves on the tray with the cut sides up.
Tip the tinned maize into a strainer, rinse under running water and drain thoroughly. In the meantime, clean and wash the pepper and the green part of the spring onions. Chop the pepper into small pieces and the spring onion into rings. Drain the tuna and break it into smaller pieces. Add the tuna to the maize, onions and pepper and mix in 2/3 of the grated cheese. Spread the tomato puree on the baguette halves and then top them with the cheese, tuna and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for 12 minutes in the heated oven until the cheese is nicely melted.

Cut the prepared “pizzas” into smaller pieces and serve.
