For the tomato sauce

  1. Heat the olive oil over a medium heat in a small saucepan. Add the onion, stir and reduce the heat to low. Cover and sweat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until completely soft.

  2. Remove the lid, add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and dried oregano.

  3. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for anything up to one hour until the sauce has thickened. Don't worry if you don't have an hour - a few minutes will be fine.

  4. If desired you can blend the sauce at this stage.

To make the puff pastry pizza

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C(fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.

  2. Unroll the puff pastry and place on a baking tray. Spread with the tomato sauce (you won't need all of it so you can keep the rest for pasta or freeze for a future date).

  3. Sprinkle over the grated or shredded cheese and finally the oregano.

  4. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.

  5. Allow to cool on a wire rack and then cut into eight slices. Freezes well.
