For some reason, we hardly ever have pizza, and I’m not sure we’ve ever made it. So we decided to remedy that on Saturday.

There was a small tub of tomato purée in the freezer, and some pork and duck stuffing balls (from Waitrose, no less!), and it seemed a good way to deal with them. There was also a couple of packets of pizza mix in the pantry; I think I bought them to do something from the Hairy Bikers’ book, and never got round to it.

So, I roasted off the stuffing balls in the Remoska, and then Pete did the rest. He cooked down the tomato with some garlic and onion, then spread it on the pizza dough, added salami, the meatballs, and some mozzarella. It wasn’t bad at all, but next time I’ll make my own dough, thank you.

The mystery butcher’s bag in the freezer turned out to contain about 150g of sausagemeat, clearly bought for sossidge rolls for the festering season. Hmm … what to do?

I added some chopped mix herbs to the meat, and mixed it all together. Into the slow cooker went onions, garlic, a diced courgette and some mushrooms, and I formed the sausagemeat into eight small balls, and laid them on the top. The last of the tomato paste had a slosh of red wine, and some water, added and went on top. Into the slow cooker for six hours, and very nice indeed.

There’s a fair bit of the sauce left, which we shall have tonight with the addition of some Matessons* sausage (no, not gourmet, I know, but dead handy as a standby!).
