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.

The end product was quite bland, however it was quite easy to make.

it's a easy and very good recipe! I suggest buy the ingredients on the web-site www.italiagroceries.com. where you can do shopping on-line of originally and typically Italian products! I've buy many things, they are honesty. Italian cuisine is the best cuisine in the world!

Had genuinely good intentions to make this, but then ended up ordering a dominoes. This is why I'll always be fat. The above rating is based on my large meat feast.

This is a great alternative to regular pizza and is healthier to boot! I have to admit to doubling up on the Mozzarella and adding Anchovies for that little extra - Adding about another 50 calories to each serving!

As a student looking for a healthy alternative- this was awesome! However, I live in halls and the only oven is a "microwave/grill oven" - so the base was still a bit soft after 12 minutes. Does anyone have any suggestions about getting more of the real "pizza base texture". Also- I didn't add any oil/salt to keep it on the healthier side :)

Usually using one of those pizza trays with holes in make it crispier, but don't think you would be able to use it in a microwave/grill oven.

Really easy dough method and tastes great. I don't have a dough blade (my food processor is older than me!) but this worked fine with the regular blade.

Love love love this recipe!! You can customise it exactly how you want it. I use passata with garlic to give extra oomph and then just open the fridge and chuck on whatever I have! Peppers are delicious on this, as are black olives. But you can let your imagination run wild. Happy experimenting everyone!

Great combination of flavours! This is a lovely recipe and gives a healthy twist on an old comfort food. I tend to use more mozzarella than as guided but the less you use the healthier it is.

Is it possible to make the dough without a food processor for those of us who do not have one?

Hi katies286 and jamescgrane you can do this in a free standing mixer fitted with a dough hook or by hand in a large bowl with a wooden spoon although it might involve a bit of elbow grease.

Can I make the dough in a mixer with a dough hook instead of a processor?

Is it 479cal per portion or the whole pizza?

Hi Emily, thanks for your question. The calories are given per portion, so in this case its half the pizza. Best wishes, BBC Good Food team

Can this be made with whole meal flour?

The white flour serves to lighten the dough but you can use all wholemeal if you like. The result will be denser than the original recipe. Either way, make sure you use strong flour.
