    4. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
    5. Place the rest of the ingredients (minus the rocket leaves) on the tree to represent baubles and other decorations.

    7. Cut the remaining offcuts into long strips and spread the pesto over them.
    8. Twist and wrap the pesto covered strips over the tree to represent the tinsel.

    10. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the oven or until the cheese has melted nicely.
    11. Place the rocket leaves onto the cooked pizza to represent the leaves of the tree.
