Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Toss the peppers in a roasting tin with 1 tbsp olive oil and roast for 20 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 240°C/220°C/gas 9. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the defrosted pizza dough balls into a rectangle about 0.5cm thick. Transfer each to a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Divide the roasted pepper slices between the bases, spoon over the ricotta and top with the anchovy fillets and  capers. Grate over the parmesan, then bake the pizzas for 10-14 minutes, turning them round in the oven halfway through, until golden and crisp. Drizzle with a little light olive oil and scatter with fresh basil to serve.
