Instructions
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Peel the zucchini into thin ribbons using a vegetable peeler.

2

In a small bowl, combine the tomato paste, 2/3 of the balsamic vinegar and a good drizzle of olive oil. Mix well. TIP: Adding balsamic vinegar to tomato paste gives it a sweeter, deeper and richer flavour! Place the wholemeal pizza bases on a flat surface, rough side down, and use the back of a spoon to spread evenly with the tomato paste mixture.

3

Top the pizza with the zucchini ribbons and dollops of traditional pesto. Crumble over the fetta. TIP: Make sure to spread the ingredients evenly over the pizza base to prevent a soggy base!

4

Place the pizzas in the oven directly onto the wire racks and cook for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the base is crispy. Tip: Placing the pizzas directly onto the wire racks helps the base to crisp up.

5

While the pizza is baking, combine the remaining balsamic vinegar, honey and olive oil (1 tbs for 2 people / 1 tbs for 4 people) in a medium bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well. Add the rocket leaves and toss to coat. TIP: Add the rocket just before serving to avoid soggy leaves.

6

Slice the speedy basil pesto pizza into wedges and top with half of the dressed rocket. Serve the remaining rocket on the side.
