Janette Davies Pizza

The best thing about this tomato flan is, you can make it the quick and simple way for every day lunch or you can jazz it up and it looks good enough for the centre piece of a special buffet.


  • Roll of bought puff pastry
  • Large tomatoes thinly sliced
  • Pesto
  • Garlic finely chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Basil Leaves


Heat the oven to 200oc Gas Mark 6

Place the pastry on a large flat baking tray and score lightly all around the edge (making a border) and prick the centre a few times with a fork.

Bake for about ten minutes until it rises up, but is not too brown around the edge.

Let it cool and knock the middle down so it is flat.

Spread the pesto over the middle and cover with the slices of tomato, sprinkle the garlic over, and dot with a few drops of pesto and oil.

Bake again for five minutes.

Take out and decorate with the torn basil leaves.

At this stage you can add extras – anchovies are my favourites, but the suggestions are endless – peppers – onion rings – cheese – but slice very thinly.

Return to the oven for a further five minutes.

Who Am I?

I was born Janette Christine Power, in Sparkbrook, Birmingham (England) in 1944. Went to Aston Commercial School and worked for Midland Bank for five years. I had various secretarial positions around the Midlands, until a change of career sent me to a Northamptonshire village to run a Pub.

In 1992 I met and married Colin Davies and we moved to a smallholding in Wales. Unfortunately, ill health forced us to sell up and move to Spain.

Now retired, we spend our days reading, writing and drinking wine.

I have published three books; "Hey! Zeus!!" (12 quirky blasts of fun fiction) and Books 1 & 2 of The Big Spanish Adventure Series. I have contributed to various anthologies published through WordPlay Writers Forum and also have a monthly newsletter "Quirky Girl in Spain".
