low insalt1.5g


  • knob of butter
  • 3 shallots , finely diced
  • 250g full-fat crème fraîche
  • 50g parmesan , finely grated
  • 4 ripe figs , cut into chunks
  • 125g ball good-quality buffalo mozzarella , roughly torn
  • 2 handfuls rocket
  • 6 slices prosciutto , torn into strips
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp good balsamic vinegar

For the dough

  • 400g strong white bread flour , plus extra for dusting
  • 7g sachet fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


  • STEP 1

    To make the dough, mix the flour, yeast and salt in a bowl. Measure 250ml hand-warm water into a jug, add the oil, then tip into the flour mixture. Mix together with a wooden spoon, followed by your hands, to make a wet dough – add a splash more warm water if needed. Cover with oiled cling film and leave somewhere warm-ish to rise for 1 hr or until doubled in size. Heat the butter, then soften the shallots and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Tip the dough onto a floured surface, knead briefly to smooth, then divide into 6-8 balls. Roll out each to a thin circle, then arrange on flour-dusted baking sheets. Mix the crème fraîche, Parmesan and shallots with a little salt and lots of black pepper. Spread over the dough and bake for 10-15 mins until crisp at the edges and slightly puffed up.

  • STEP 3

    Toss the figs and mozzarella with the rocket. Sprinkle over the pizzettas with the prosciutto. Mix the oil and vinegar, drizzle over the pizzettas and serve.
