    Cheddar and Swiss-style cheeses – as well as the Italian grating cheeses – are potent flavourings, even in modest amounts, so are especially good for cooking. They offer quality protein and – along with the melting cheeses like mozzarella – are rich in calcium.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1 red capsicum, thinly sliced
    • 1 green capsicum, thinly sliced
    • 250g mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Salt
    • 1 purchased pizza base (30cm)
    • 1/4 cup tomato pasta sauce
    • 250g mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
    • Freshly ground black pepper

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over moderate heat. Add the capsicums and cook for 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the mushrooms, oregano and a pinch of salt, then cook for 4 minutes or until the mushroom liquid has evaporated. Put aside.
    2. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Spray a baking tray with cooking spray. Place the pizza base on the prepared tray. Spoon the tomato sauce over the pizza base then top with the capsicum mixture, the mozzarella and a little pepper. Bake the pizza for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the crust is browned.

    A high intake of calcium, especially during childhood and adolescence, can reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, a condition where bones become brittle and weak. The calcium in cheese (and other dairy products) is more easily absorbed than calcium in other foods.
