Method

  1. Mix the flours and yeast with a pinch of salt in a food processor fitted with a dough blade. Pour in the water and mix to a soft dough, then work for 1 min. Remove the dough and roll out on a lightly floured surface to a round about 30cm across. Lift onto an oiled baking sheet.
  2. Spread the canned tomatoes over the dough to within 2cm of the edges. Arrange the cherry tomatoes and courgettes over the top, then scatter with the mozzarella. Mix the capers, olives and garlic, then scatter over the top. Drizzle evenly with the oil. Leave to rise for 20 mins. Heat oven to 240C/ fan 220C/gas 9 or the highest setting.
  3. Bake the pizza for 10-12 mins until crisp and golden around the edges. Scatter with the parsley to serve.

leaving the dough to rise after putting the topping on? wouldn't that make the whole thing really soggy? would i be better off rising it before rolling it out?

I addedd onion, mushrooms and thin cut ham to my topping - as the fridge needed clearing! Perhaps less is more :-)

Very easy receipe - think I may of overdone the topping as my pizza base was soggy, but will definitely be transferring this one to my receipe book ;-)

Its alright i can spell i meant Chorizo not chrizo 'lol'
Just to add i think adding onion and garlic to the base as suggested by Sirscoffedthelot, is a great idea and will be trying this too. x

This sounds fab, not ever made my own dough so would be interested to be brave and try my own.
Im not keen on capers neither is my partner so i may add thinly sliced chrizo or pepperoni instead, this in turn would give it some meat too, which we would prefer and the coking time should work out about right.
i'll defenitly be making this and will be back to give my verdict. x
