Prepare the sauce by heating the olive oil in a saucepan over a moderate heat. Sauté the garlic for a minute, then add the passata, sugar and seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook for 4-5 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and leave to one side.

Combine the flour, salt, yeast and sugar for the dough in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the oil and water to form a dough, bringing it together with your hands, then kneading gently on a lightly floured surface for a minute until even. Divide the dough in 4 and roll out to the desired thickness, roughly 20cm in diameter.

Arrange on baking trays and bake for 18-22 minutes until golden and risen. Remove from the oven and reheat the sauce. Spread the sauce on top of the pizza base, then arrange the aubergine discs overlapping on top of the sauce.

Sprinkle the crumbled feta on top of the aubergine, then sprinkle on the crushed coriander and cumin seeds. Return to the oven for 5-7 minutes until the aubergine is cooked. Remove and garnish with a basil leaf before serving.
