Pumpkin pizza

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Season the pumpkin, spray with oil and cook in the oven until tender and lightly caramelised.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the seasoned leeks until lightly coloured and tender (adding a little water to the pan if colouring too much). Drain well.
  • When ready, turn the oven temp. up to 220°C fan forced (240°C normal).
  • Then spread the leeks and sliced pumpkin out on the pizza base and top with the feta, mozzarella and pine nuts. Spray with a little oil and place either on a pizza stone or on an upside down preheated baking tray. Then cook in the oven until the base is crisp with good colour.
  • Dress the rocket with oil spray, scatter over the top of the pizza and serve.
