Ingredients Method

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen thin whole wheat pizza bases
  • 2-3 teaspoons fresh pesto sauce
  • 2 small courgettes
  • 2-3 Zespri Green kiwifruit
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • 100 g feta cheese
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 handful mixed greens
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chilli
  • 1 sprig basil

Method

  1. Wash the courgette and cut into long, thin strips with a vegetable peeler. Mix with the vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and stir well. Let it marinade for 10 minutes.
  2. Spread the pesto sauce onto the pizza crusts and sprinkle cheese on top. Thinly slice the tomatoes and spread on top, season and bake in a preheated oven at 220° C for 6 minutes. Then put it under the grill for 2 minutes to cook the tomatoes a bit more.
  3. Peel and dice the Zespri kiwifruit. Combine with courgette and put it on top of the pizzas with the mixed greens, rest of the cheese, basil and ground chilli.

Tip: It is better to bake the pizzas one at a time if there isn’t enough space. If you put them in the oven on top of each the other, they may not bake evenly.
