Summer Pizza

An idea for a summery, Greek-inspired pizza.  Light, fresh and exceptionally tasty.  I just can’t stop making this just now.  :)

Summer Pizza

BaseSee flatbread recipe here.  When rolling out the dough, however, use semolina rather than flour to dust the surface.  To ensure a crispy base without a stone oven, I like to bake the base in a very hot oven for a couple of minutes before adding the tomato sauce and toppings.

Tomato SauceSaute a small onion in olive oil until soft.  Add a garlic clove and cook for another minute before adding 4 very ripe, chopped tomatoes.  Cook gently for an hour or so until thick and jammy.  Add some torn basil.

ToppingsCrumbled feta, capers, olives,, halved cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of thyme.  Add rocket when pizza comes out of the (still very hot) oven.
