Overview

Occasionally we have parts of meals that we couldn't finish and so end up with leftovers. Take this as an opportunity to create a 'Second Chance' meal.

To help you get started we're sharing some of our favourite leftover recipes that use common leftover ingredients such as chicken, pasta and veggies. The recipes have been provided by Hello Table, Cumberland Council from their Love Your Leftovers app and cookbook as well as Go for 2&5®.

Want to share your own recipe? Visit our Facebook page and let everyone know about your 'Second Chance' meal.

Cooking with your leftovers and ingredients you have at home are just two of the things we can do to reduce food waste. We can also plan our meals, write a shopping list, measure serving sizes and store food right to keep it fresh.

Total time 30 minutes

Sausage Pizza

Ingredients


Tomato pizza sauce

  • 400g diced tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 handful basil or oregano (optional)
  • salt and pepper


Pizza base

  • 2¼ cups spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • extra spelt flour for kneading


Toppings

  • 2–4 cooked sausages, sliced
  • 2 whole roasted red peppers, sliced
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced
  • 20 kalamata olives, halved
  • 4 handfuls cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 handful rocket leaves

Place pizza stone (or tray covered with baking paper) in oven when cold. Heat oven to 200°C for 10 minutes while you prepare the dough.

To make tomato pizza sauce, place tomatoes, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a small frying pan and boil on medium–high heat for 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Stir occasionally. Then put aside.

To make the base, sift spelt flour with baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Sift again to make sure the baking powder is mixed through evenly. Add yoghurt and olive oil and mix until the dough comes together.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5–8 minutes, until elastic. Add more flour as you knead. It is ready when the top of the dough bounces back when pressed, leaving no indentation. Cut dough into quarters.

On a lightly floured surface (ideally a wooden board so the dough doesn’t stick), roll to preferred thickness. Spread with tomato pizza sauce, and top with sausage slices, red pepper, onion, olives and cheese. Transfer to hot pizza stone in oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Top with rocket leaves to serve.
