 Fig, Rosemary and Olive Pizza

GF – DF – SF – EF – VG



PREP         5 minutes, plus making the dough
COOK      16 minutes


Pizza Dough Mix, for dusting (see below)
1 recipe quantity of Pizza Dough (see below)
4 tbsp passata
100g/3½oz/¾ cup black olives, pitted and chopped
4 figs, quartered
1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary leaves

60g/2¼oz/⅔ cup shaved dairy free cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas 7 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

2. Dust a clean surface with pizza dough mix. Turn out the dough and knead for a few seconds, then shape into a ball. Flatten the dough slightly using your hands, then use a rolling pin to roll it out to a large circle about 5mm/¼in thick. Neaten the edge, using a sharp knife, then transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

3. Put the passata and olives in a bowl and mix well, then spread over the pizza base. Place the figs evenly over the pizza and scatter over the rosemary.

4. Bake for 12 minutes until the base is starting to turn brown. Remove the pizza from the oven and scatter the cheese over the top, then return to the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has started to melt. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and serve immediately.
