  5. Remove the pizza from the oven and spread over the passata. Top with the cottage cheese. Then add your toppings as you like. Sprinkle over the swiss cheese, chorizo and the chicken. Slice the mushrooms and add to the top with any extra veg you fancy.
  6. Return to the oven about cook for a further 6-8 mins until crisp and hot and the Swiss cheese is melting. Top with the spinach and seeds.
