Ingredients

  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded, halved and sliced into strips
  • 150g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tbsp dried mixed herbs
  • 50g tomato purée
  • 75g mozzarella cheese pearls
  • 14g basil leaves
  • 160g Italian-style salad, to serve

Method

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas mark 7. Place the peppers and tomatoes in a large baking tray, then drizzle with ½ tbsp olive oil and season. Bake for 15 minutes, until cooked and lightly charred. Remove from the oven and set aside. 

  2. 2

    Add the flour to a large mixing bowl with the baking powder and dried herbs. Season lightly and whisk together. Make a well in the centre and add 2 tbsp olive oil. Gradually add 125ml warm water, using a fork to bring the fork into the liquid. 

  3. 3

    Once it has roughly come together, turn the dough out on to a lightly floured work surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until you have a smooth ball of dough. Turn a large bowl over the dough and leave to rest for 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the remaining oil to a medium-sized ovenproof frying pan, making sure it coats the bottom. Place over a medium high heat, then stretch the dough to the size of the pan and carefully add to the pan. Cook on one side for 4-5 minutes until deeply golden, then turn over. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes, lowering the heat if it starts to burn.

  5. 5

    Mix half the roasted cherry tomatoes into the tomato purée. Spread the tomato mixture on to the pizza and top with the remaining roasted veg and mozzarella pearls. Place under a hot grill for 3-4 minutes, or until the mozzarella just begins to melt. Remove from the oven and scatter with the basil leaves. Serve with the salad.
