Preheat oven to 220o C and place a heavy baking sheet in the oven to heat up. In a frying pan heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over a medium heat and add the chopped onion and fry until caramelised to your taste.

Whilst the onions caramelise, heat a separate pan over a high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Fry two finely sliced garlic cloves for a few seconds taking care not to burn them. Add the tomato puree and cook through for 1-2 minutes (this enhances the flavour so much more!) then add the passata.

Reduce the heat until you have a thick sauce which will hold to the dough. Pour the sauce mix into a food processor with the basil and remaining garlic cloves and blitz to a pesto-like consistency.

Roll the pizza dough onto a sheet of non-stick baking parchment so it can be easily transferred to the baking sheet. Spread the pizza dough with sauce base and to with the caramelised onions. Top three different portions of the pizza with the separate toppings. On the left third put the cherry tomatoes and the egg, the middle third the mushrooms and pepper and the right third the cured meats and olives.

Transfer to the oven and put the pizza onto the heated baking sheet (or pizza stone). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the crust looks a nice golden-brown and the egg white is set.

Remove the pizza from the oven, scatter with rocket and fresh basil leaves and drizzle with left over oil. Serve.

Hints and tips

These can be done a day ahead of having guests over.

This is called “Please-All” because you are free to add as many varied toppings as you like onto the pizza. We’ve given three suggestions, you can put anything on “your” part of the pizza, from grilled chickens to snails!

We’ve omitted cheese in this recipe because we like to keep it healthy and so the freshness of the basil/tomato base comes through, but feel free to add any/all cheese you like (mozzarella being the most usual).
