Now it's topping time!
I fancied a vegetable pizza... My ideal was ratatouille pizza but I didn't have any courgettes nor any aubergines (difficult to make ratatouille without those two vegs!) but I still had a few things I could use. It was not a little missing ingredient that was going to stop me, right? So I used red and green peppers, an onion, some asparagus, some mushrooms, homegrown spinach and homegrown rocket (rocket on pizza is absolutely yummy!). I cooked those vegs in a little olive oil before using them on the pizza. If you use them raw, all their juices might make the pizza all soggy. But if you cook them beforehand, their juices are already cooked.
Now it's time to top up your well risen pizza dough, starting with the tomato sauce. Don't put too much of it, as we are using vegetables as well, we don't want it to get soggy.
Now the cooked vegetables...
Then the rocket...
And cheese to finish!
And here is the result after cooking it for about 20 minutes at about 180C.
And the result after cutting it and taking a bite out of a slice of Provence.... Yummy!!
When I make it again, I will definitely get some courgettes, aubergines and black olives and make a ratatouille one. Roll on summery Provence!
