Brandade (Salt Cod mash) & Chorizo PizzaWednesday June 1st, 2016
I love “brandade”, a sort of salt cod mash from the South of France. I always have some in my cupboard that I use for everything: to stuff some sweet peppers, to top some tartlets, to stuff some raviolis, as a dip for apéritif, and also for my pizzas! In this recipe I have added some chorizo, which gives a Spanish swing. Great match!

- 1 brick (500 g) tomato sauce
- 100 g grated cheese
