  • 1 Round Pizza Tray
  • 1 Rolling Pin
  • 1 Soup Spoon


  • 1 pizza dough
  • 3 tablespoon basil pesto
  • 1 cup artichokes
  • ½ cup kalamata olives
  • 200 grams gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven: preheat the oven to 180°C / 350-375°F / Gas Mark 4-5.
  • Prepare the dough: use a rolling pin and a little plain flour with silicon mat to roll the dough into a round pizza shape.
  • Spread the sauce: use a spoon to dollop the basil pesto onto the pizza dough and use the back of the spoon to spread it out into 1 layer.
  • Add the toppings: spread the artichokes and Kalamata olives out on top of the pesto sauce in a random manner.
  • Top with cheese: place the pieces of roughly chopped gorgonzola onto the pizza and sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese over the top.
  • Oven bake: cook the pizza for 23 to 30 mins in the oven on the middle shelf, After about 15 mins, you can slide it off the tray and place the tray on the shelf under it, this till ensure the base is thoroughly cooked through and thin and crispy.
  • Serve: remove pizza from the oven. Use a pizza wheel and chopping board to slice into even pieces and serve! Enjoy!!
