    -1 tsp easy blend dried yeast
    -1 tbsp olive oil
    -200ml luke warm water

    For the tomato sauce:

    -1 small onion, chopped
    -1 clove garlic, chopped
    -227g canned chopped tomatoes
    -1 tsp paprika
    -1 tbsp tomato puree
    -1 tsp fresh chopped oregano

    For the pizza topping:
    -1 tbsp olive oil
    -1 yellow pepper, cored, deseeded and sliced
    -1 orange pepper, cored, deseeded and sliced
    -1 red onion, sliced
    -200g herby black olives
    -75g sliced chorizo
    -2 x 120g packets Boursin Minis
    -4 medium tomatoes
    -1 x 50g packet wild rocket


For the dough: mix together the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Stir in the oil and water to form a soft dough.

Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead dough for 10 minutes. Return to a bowl.

Cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place for around 1 ½ hours until well risen and doubled in volume.

Meanwhile for the tomato sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan and sauté the onion for 5 minutes, until softened.

Stir in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil and cover and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, until thickened.

Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

For the topping, heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the peppers for 10 minutes, over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until softened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Divide the dough into four and roll into balls on a floured surface. Cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for 10 – 20 minutes. Roll out each to a 23cm circle. Place on baking sheets and leave for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 220C/fan200C/Gas 7. Divide the tomato sauce between the pizza bases spreading over evenly and leaving a 1cm gap around the edge. Then top the pizzas with the prepared peppers and remaining topping ingredients except the rocket.

Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately and scatter with rocket.
