To make the tomato sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/390F (180C/355F fan). In a pan, warm the olive oil over a medium heat and fry the onion and garlic gently until soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes and oregano, then simmer until it reduces by half. It should take about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.

To prepare the base

  1. Meanwhile, unroll the puff pastry - trim if necessary so that it will fit on your baking tray.
  2. Lay the pastry in the tray and prick with a fork to stop it from puffing up, then cook for 5 minutes until it feels slightly dry.

To assemble

  1. Take the pastry out of the oven and spread with the tomato sauce you made earlier over the pastry base, leaving a 2cm border clear all round
  2. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the pizza, followed by ham. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden around the edges
  4. Chop into six squares and serve with plenty of fresh salad.
