Print this Recipe
Serves: 4
250g / 9 oz all-purpose (plain) flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp active dry (easy blend dried) yeast
1/2 tsp salt
150ml / 5 fl oz warm water
3 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for oiling
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 onion, sliced into rings
1 zucchini (courgette), chopped
1/2 eggplant (aubergine), chopped
1 mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
4 tomatoes, seeded and sliced
4 black olives, pitted and sliced

Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the yeast and salt. Stir well, add the warm water and 2 tablespoons of oil, and stir together to form a dough, adding a little more water or flour as necessary. Tip onto a floured board and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover, and leave in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 475ºF / 240ºC / Gas Mark 9. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet (frying pan), add the pepper, onion, and zucchini (courgette), and cook for 5 minutes until soft. Knock back the dough on a floured surface, then roll the dough into a circle measuring about 25cm / 10 inches in diameter. Place on a non stick baking sheet.

Arrange the mozzarella over the pizza and add the tomato slices. Spoon over the vegetables and scatter over the sliced olives. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp and golden.
