  • Pizza Topping
  • 1 kg butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded, cut into 2cm slices
  • 4 chorizo sausages, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 quantity easy home made pizza dough
  • 23 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 170 g small bocconcini, torn
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • easy pizza dough
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 8 g sachet instant dry yeast

  3. Top Your Pizza: Top pizza bases with roasted pumpkin, chorizo, bocconcini and walnuts, then drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15-10mins, or until bases are crispy and golden. Drizzle with vinegar.
