In a small bowl, combine the tomato paste with 2/3 of the balsamic vinegar and a good drizzle of olive oil. 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.

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.
