Eat: Homemade Christmas Pizza with Double Smoked Ham, Roasted Tomatoes, Red Cress and Basil 

Pizza is great at any time of the year, and this Christmas inspired recipe is perfect for using leftover leg ham at holiday time. The greens and reds of the tomatoes, basil and cress ensure it is appropriately festive!


Homemade pizza dough (see our previous recipe)

1 tablespoon of olive oil

3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese

3 slices of double smoked leg ham

5 vine ripened tomatoes, quartered

1/4 cup of cubed feta cheese
