Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a pan and add the onions and garlic, cook over a low heat until softened but not browned. This will take about 10 minutes. Add the granulated sugar and vinegar and cook for 2 minutes over a high heat.

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Unroll the pastry and place on a large non-stick baking sheet. Spread the tomato and onion mixture over the pastry to within 1cm (½in) of the border. Top with the sliced tomatoes, olives and pieces of cheese steak. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry edges are well-puffed and golden.

Scatter the top with the salad or fresh basil leaves and serve
