Vegan pizza with peppers, artichokes and olives

No one can resist a tasty slice of pizza, especially when it's homemade from scratch and served straight from the oven. Give this easy vegan pizza recipe a try, with a simple bread dough base and delicious veggie toppings including creamy houmous and salty capers, although you can easily mix and match the toppings as you like.

  1. To make the dough, mix the yeast, oil, sugar and 325ml warm water in a jug and set aside for 2 mins. Put the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture. Use a wooden spoon to mix together, bringing the flour in from the sides of the bowl until it comes together as a dough.
  2. Dust your hands and the work surface with flour. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead for 10 mins until smooth and springy. Form the dough into a ball and put in a large oiled bowl then cover with a piece of oiled clingfilm to prevent it from sticking. Leave to prove in a warm place for 1 hr or until the dough has doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 240°C, fan 220°C. Place 2 floured baking trays (or pizza stones, if you have them) in the oven to heat through.
  4. Turn the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface and knock out any air bubbles, kneading it again briefly. Divide into 4 equal balls and stretch or roll out the dough, turning it as you go, until you have 4 rough circles.
  5. Spread 2 tbsp passata over each base, then top with the artichokes and peppers. Stir the sundried tomato paste into the houmous then dot over the pizzas. Finish with the olives and capers.
  6. Carefully transfer the pizzas to the hot baking trays and bake for 8-10 mins until the crust is golden. Serve each pizza scattered with rocket leaves and a drizzle of basil oil.

Tip: Make sure your work surface is well floured before rolling out the dough to stop it sticking.
