  • 200g closed cup white mushrooms brushed clean and sliced
  • 125g medium grated British Cheddar
  • 100g drained tinned sweetcorn kernels

1 Set aside the frozen mixed peppers for 1 hour to defrost, then pat dry with kitchen paper.

2 Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6.

3 Pop the pittas in a toaster for a minute then let cool. Using a knife, cut the lightly toasted pittas in half horizontally and put on a large baking tray, cut-side down. Spread the tomato purée over the pitta halves, then top with the mushrooms, Cheddar, sweetcorn, tomatoes and defrosted peppers.
