Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Place the pepper, courgette and red onion on a large non-stick baking tray and drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil. Season well and toss to combine. Roast in the oven for 20 mins until soft and beginning to brown. Set aside.

  2. Heat the grill to medium. Season the flour well and, in a large bowl, mix with the remaining oil and 4-5 tbsp water to form a soft dough. Knead briefly, then roll out on a floured surface to a rough 20cm circle. Transfer the dough to a large ovenproof, nonstick frying pan and fry over a medium heat for 5 mins, until the underside begins to brown. Turn over and cook for a further 5 mins. Spread the tomato sauce over the base, scatter with the roasted veg, then sprinkle with cheddar. Grill the pizza for 3-4 mins until cheese has melted. Serve immediately, sliced into wedges, with a large green salad.

Also meant to say that I never roll the dough out - I always press it into the pan with my hand/knuckles. Much more rustic and less fuss I think!

Seriously good recipe for uni students!! I use the base recipe as a way of making naan bread or my own bread to accompany dishes I serve. I have even been known just to eat the base - mix in a bunch of dried 'erbs, s&p and you're done. So good!

Tasty, though I did as some reviewers suggested and used less flour and more oil and water than the recipe suggests. Also, I oven baked the base instead of frying it to save on washing up, then added the veg and oven baked to finish. Overall not a bad recipe, but in future I'll just buy pizza dough mix and do it that way.

I have followed the recipe and also made a tomato based sauce and topped with more traditional toppings - both versions have gone down well with both adults and children

The base fell apart when turning in the frying pan, but as I hadn't read any reviews before cooking it looks as though less floor/more oil and water would help. Will try it again with adjustments before rating.

Split the dough into two pizzas for a thinner crust and lower calories. If its too thick it tastes too doughy for me. As for the people suggesting a quarter is not enough - it is with sides, salad or wedges. Can also be divided into four for individual pizzas - used to do that at uni for fussy eating housemates

I cannoit see the point of oven roasting the vegetables, in oil, before cooking the pizza; surely if they had been friedionavery little oil the juices, and flavour, in the pan could then be transferred to the dough base. Also a yeast dough is always better than a scone dough, even if there is not along time for proving, is easily made while the veg are cooking, and is delicious when "fried" in apan

Can I bake this instead of frying?

You need a strong initial heat from below for this recipe so is best cooked in a pan. When cooking an oven pizza, for best results follow a baked recipe instead.

Use coconut oil instead of olive oil. I used heated coconut oil and it made the dough a lot softer and easier to roll.
