What you’ll need
2 cups The Healthy Baker Plain Flour
7g dried yeast
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
For the topping
½ butternut pumpkin peeled, seeded and cut into 2cm pieces
1 red capsicum seeded and deveined, cut into 2cm pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon pizza sauce
300g crumbled feta
1 cup pitted black olives
2 teaspoons Italian dried herbs
1 cup rocket leaves, to serve
1 tablespoon auzure Canola Oil for caramelised onions
3 large red onions halved and sliced for caramelised onions
1 tablespoon sugar for caramelised onions
To make the dough, combine sifted flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Make a well and pour in warm water and oil.
Stir to combine, then turn onto a lightly floured board. Knead for about 8 minutes, or until smooth and elastic – adding more flour, if necessary.
Spray a medium bowl with a little oil. Place dough in bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place for about one hour, or until double in size.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 220ºC. Place pumpkin, capsicum and oil in a large baking dish and stir to coat. Bake 30 minutes or until tender. Remove and set aside.
While the vegetables are roasting, cook the caramelised onions. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add onions and reduce heat slightly.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until very soft. Add sugar and cook for a further 3 minutes, stirring continuously. Set aside.
Increase oven temperature to 240ºC. Lightly oil 2 x 30cm diameter pizza trays. When dough is ready, punch it in the centre, then turn onto lightly floured board.
Knead lightly, just until smooth. Divide the dough in half. Roll one half to a 24cm circle; place on a prepared tray and use fingers to push the edges of the dough to fit the tray.
Repeat with remaining dough.
Spread pizzas with pizza sauce, leaving a 3cm border.
Top with caramelised onions, then pumpkin, capsicum, feta and olives.
Spray liberally with oil. Sprinkle with dried herbs. Bake 10 minutes, then switch tray positions.
Continue baking for 10 minutes or until base is browned. Top with rocket and serve immediately.
