🍴Makes: 1 Pizza
🕒 Prep: 15 mins Cooking: 30-40 min

Ingredients

  • 1 wholemeal pita base

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup of Italian tomato passata
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp mixed Italian herbs
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Toppings

  • 400-500g pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • 1 tablespoon sage, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 120g soft white cheese – my favourite is Meredith Goat Cheese jars from the supermarket but soft Danish feta from the deli works well too

Optional extras

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of pine nuts
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup shaved or grated parmesan
  • 50g spinach leaves
  • 50g roquette leaves, to serve

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C, 200°C if fan-forced and line a tray with baking paper (try re-usable)
  2. Toss pumpkin, rosemary and sage with oil in a large bowl
  3. Arrange pumpkin on tray and roast for 15-20 minutes or until just tender
  4. If adding pine nuts, toast over low to medium heat in a dry skillet/frying pan, moving constantly for up to 5 minutes until they’re lightly toasted on the outside. Remove from hot skillet and set aside to stop them continuing to cook
  5. Lightly coat the same skillet with olive oil and place back on medium heat
  6. Fry the mixed herbs with the garlic for a few minutes until golden
  7. Add the passata with sugar to reduce its acidity and cook until sauce thickens slightly.
  8. Pour sauce over pizza base (if using parmesan, pine nuts, red onion and spinach, add them now)
  9. Place pumpkin and crumble white cheese around the base and lightly drizzle balsamic glaze over the top
  10. Increase oven temperature to 240°C or 220°C fan-forced and bake pizza for 10-15 minutes until base is crispy and toppings look cooked
  11. Remove from oven and place your roquette to serve!
  12. Serve with a simple side salad (inspiration here: sides)

Notes

  • Fresh herbs from the veg section work best but the dried versions will do just fine
  • You can make your own dough if you like or use a pre-make pizza base in place of pita
