  • 3 tbsp sundried tomato paste
  • 4 slices ham

Make it veggie
Swap the ham for a 280g jar chargrilled artichokes. Drain well, scatter over along with the other toppings and bake as before.


  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Unroll the pastry onto a baking sheet and score a border 1cm from the edge. Prick inside the border with a fork and spread with the sundried tomato paste. Bake for 12-15 mins.

  2. Squash down the puffed-up pastry inside the scored rim, then top with the ham, cheese, peppers and olives. Sprinkle with oregano and bake for 10-12 mins more until the base is nice and crisp. Scatter with rocket leaves and serve.
