Fancy making your kids a delicious meal that’s both cheap and uses very little energy? Tom Kerridge and Marcus Rashford have the answer with this fun recipe for tortilla pizzas.
The celebrity pair have set up Full Time Meals, a campaign to stop children going hungry. Every week, Kerridge shares a new recipe for hearty home-cooked grub.
You will need very few ingredients, equipment or cooking skills and the whole family will be able to cook these simple recipes. As part of The Big Issue’s Summer Survival Guide, they have kindly shared a few recipes with us.

Tortilla pizzas take only six to eight minutes in the oven for the toppings to get crispy and the cheese to melt into a delicious goo. That means they use up very little energy, so you won’t be wasting money as bills continue to soar.
Have fun with the recipe and use whatever toppings you like. Kerridge and Rashford suggest vegetables and ham, which sounds scrumptious, but perhaps you’re more of a ham and pineapple kind of family!
Kerridge says: “Making pizza at home is so easy if you cheat! And it’s a great way to get the kids involved in creating their own toppings. Here we’ve gone for a mix of colourful vegetables and some ham too. Easy peasy!”
