  1. Healthy Mini Pizzas


    For the bases
    ½ tsp active dry yeast
    285g/9¼oz white spelt flour, plus extra for dusting
    ½ tsp Himalayan pink salt

    For the sauce
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    2 tbsp capers, rinsed and drained
    pinch dried chilli flakes
    300g/10½oz tomatoes, deseeded and finely chopped
    1 tbsp fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried oregano

    For the artichoke, basil and mozzarella topping
    2 canned artichoke hearts, thinly sliced
    2 basil leaves, shredded
    20g/¾oz buffalo mozzarella, torn into small pieces

    For the courgette, lemon and feta topping
    15g/½oz courgette, thinly sliced
    3 strips of lemon rind, finely sliced
    15g/½oz feta, crumbled

    For the fennel, sweet potato and goats’ cheese topping
    10g/1/3oz fennel, thinly sliced
    15g/½oz sweet potato, thinly sliced
    6g/¼oz hard goats’ cheese, grated

    For the roasted garlic, beetroot and feta topping
    3 garlic cloves, roasted and squeezed out of the skins
    7g/¼oz beetroot, thinly sliced
    10g/½oz feta, crumbled


    Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

    For the bases, mix the yeast with 170ml/6fl oz of lukewarm water, cover and set aside in a warm room for about 15 minutes.
    Meanwhile make the sauce. Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until the onions start to go soft. Add a splash of water to cool then add the remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until thickened. Set aside until ready to construct the pizzas.

    For the bases, whisk the yeast and water mixture and set aside for another five minutes.
    Place the spelt flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture. Mix to combine then turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5–10 minutes until smooth and silky to the touch, adding a little more flour if necessary.
    Divide the bread dough into eight pieces, roll each piece into a ball and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and flatten into a circle. Smear on some tomato sauce followed by your choice of toppings and bake for five minutes. Rotate and bake for a further five minutes, or until the base is crisp.
