  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.

  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.

  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.

Made this as a starter for two, halved the recipe but it still made enough for four and we are not shy with our portions! All the flavours pull together to make this an amazingly tasty dish which is very easy to prepare - will be making this next time we have friends for dinner and probably again before then!!

I made this with plums instead of figs as I couldn't find them anywhere!! Turned out great, i made it as a starter and it went down really well..I used balsamic glaze instead of vinegar and it tasted great! :-)

Squid, that sounds like a great idea if I can change the ham and pineapple (I mean, seriously?) to American hot or similar. After 7, I might move to a version that allows me to eat my pizza rather than sifting through the charred remains of my home to find burnt crusts. Unless that was the whole point of the discounted ham and pineapple?

I much prefer squids recipe lol I would hold back a little on the wine and avoid the fire alarm process instead eat the pizza when done whilst finishing my last glass of wine and then pass out on sofa with a full tum.....
