Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 220° C (425° F)


  1. Mix the onions, peppers garlic olive oil and a grate of black pepper in a bowl
  2. Wipe a baking tray with a dash of olive oil
  3. Unroll the pastry onto the baking tray and spread the onions and peppers evenly over the pastry. Its always worth giving the pastry an extra shake of olive oil at this stage!
  4. Place in the oven for 10 minutes so the pastry can puff up
  5. Slice or tear the mozzarella into pieces so the pizza can be well covered with cheese
  6. Finely chop the anchovies and mix with the prawns and lemon juice and set aside
  7. After 10 minutes remove the pizza from the oven so the rest of the topping can be added
  8. Drain the prawns of any excess lemon juice
  9. Add the prawns and capers first and then the cheese as it helps to prevent the prawns from being overcooked
  10. Return to the oven for a further 10 minutes to melt the cheese, then serve

Serving suggestions

Serve hot or cold with a salad or coleslaw


For a healthy option, exchange the prawns for cooked smoked mackerel fillets

Spice it up a little with Greek chili flakes (which I've found to be less hot than other types)
