  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-low heat. Cook the onions and peppers for 10 mins until softened but not browned. Add the tomatoes and cook for 10 mins. Add the tomato purée and sugar, increase the heat to medium and cook for 5 mins or until the veg is soft and lightly browned. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, empty both packs of pizza base mix into a mixing bowl and stir in 200ml lukewarm water to make a dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 5 mins until smooth. Divide in half and roll each out to 23cm circle. Transfer to a lightly oiled baking sheet and set aside for 10 mins.
  3. Top the pizzas with the vegetable mixture and dot with soft cheese. Season, then bake in the top 2 shelves of the oven for 15-20 mins, swapping half way through, until the bases are golden.
