  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, non-stick 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.

Really easy to make and tastes good too. Surprised how good the base came out. Next time will add other veg.

I think the dough is too thick, would definitely make it thinner next time.

Really delicious! I especially enjoyed making it because you can do every part of it from basic ingredients :-) Yum!

It seemed to be more of a quiche base than a pizza dough but tasty all the same.

Def need more than a quarter - I ate at least half..... For us dieters (or occasional dieters) it does the trick nicely but my meat eating dairy loving husband thought it was well.... lets just say he popped out to the chippy. . .

So a quarter of the pizza is 331 calories? Is a quarter enough for dinner?

Replaced courgette ( which we all dislike) with chorizo sausage and pepperoni, which makes it a bit less healthy and low fat! Everyone liked this and requested I make it again, and its so easy.
