Ingredients

  • 125g strong white bread flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 100g strong wholemeal bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp (4g) fast-action yeast
  • 1 courgette, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp olive oil, plus extra to grease
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 150ml passata
  • 125g mozzarella, drained and torn
  • Good handful of wild rocket
  • 4 Parma ham slices, roughly torn
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • Leafy green salad to serve

Method

  1. Sift the white flour and salt into a large bowl, stir in the wholemeal flour and yeast, then make a well in the centre. Add 150-160ml warm water and bring together into a soft, slightly sticky dough with the back of a table knife.
  2. Knead the dough vigorously on a lightly dusted work surface for 5-10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Return to the cleaned bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for about an hour until doubled in size. Meanwhile, toss the veg, rosemary, oil and garlic in a bowl. Season well and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Knead the dough briefly, halve and shape into 2 evenly sized balls. Stretch and roll each to make a rough 25cm circle. Ease the bases onto 2 floured non-stick rimless baking sheets.
  4. Spread the bases with passata, leaving a 1cm border. Cover with the veg and scatter over the mozzarella. Leave to rise for 5-10 minutes, then bake on the sheets for 12-15 minutes until crisp and golden.
  5. Slide onto chopping boards and scatter with rocket and Parma ham. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, cut into wedges, then serve with a leafy salad.
