Method

Zucchini and tomato pizza
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  • 2
    Make pizza dough; in a small jug, combine water, yeast, sugar and salt. Set aside for 10 minutes until frothy. Sift flour into a large bowl, returning husks. Add yeast mixture and oil. Mix to a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl and set aside covered to prove for 1 hour (dough will double).

    Punch dough down. Roll out to a rustic rectangle, 3mm thick. Place on tray.

    In a bowl, toss tomato, zucchini, onion and garlic together. Spray with oil. Spread over base. Scatter with bocconcini and fennel seeds. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp.

    Sprinkle with parmesan followed by basil leaves. Serve drizzled with combined tzatziki and lemon juice and a good grinding of black pepper.

Notes

For a cheesy pizza dough that the kids will love, add ¼ cup finely grated parmesan to dough. Calories will increase.
