Ingredients

For the dough
  • 250g wholemeal spelt flour, plus extra to dust
  • 1 tsp dried active yeast
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for the bowl
For the beetroot chutney
  • 1 x 250g pack cooked beetroot in natural juices, drained
  • 1 red onion, coarsely grated
  • 1 small red apple, peeled, cored and coarsely grated
  • 100ml red wine vinegar
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
For the topping
  • 125g ricotta
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 5 tbsp finely grated Parmesan or vegetarian hard cheese
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 stalks Tenderstem broccoli
  • 50g freshly podded peas (or frozen)
  • a handful of rocket, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts

Step by step

Get ahead
The beetroot chutney makes more than you need (you’ll have about two-thirds of a 370ml jar left over), and will keep in a sterilised jar* in the fridge for at least 2 weeks. Delicious in sandwiches and cheese toasties, or serve with pâté.
  1. For the dough, mix the flour, yeast and salt in a bowl. Dissolve the honey in 125ml warm water and add to the bowl with the olive oil. Mix to make a rough dough then tip out onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Transfer to a clean, oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm. Leave to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  2. For the chutney, reserve a small beet for the topping; chop the rest into 5mm dice and put in a saucepan with the remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring often, until the beets break down and the chutney is sticky. Transfer to a bowl, or sterilised jar* if you plan to keep the leftovers.
  3. Preheat the oven to 240°C, fan 220°C, gas 9. Mix the ricotta, garlic, 3 tablespoons of Parmesan, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and some crushed black pepper. Finely slice the reserved beetroot. Knock the dough back in the bowl and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Cut in half and roll each piece out to make a thin pizza base, about 18cm x 30cm. Transfer to separate floured baking sheets and spread a quarter of the ricotta mix over each base, leaving a 1cm border.
    Tip
    *Sterilise your jars for 5 minutes in a medium-hot oven (190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5)
  4. Boil the broccoli for 2-3 minutes to blanch; refresh under cold water and pat dry on kitchen paper. Top each pizza with the broccoli and sliced beetroot, then add dollops of leftover ricotta mix and 2-3 tablespoons of beetroot chutney per pizza, in small spoonfuls. Scatter with the rest of the Parmesan, drizzle each with 1⁄2 tablespoon of olive oil then cook for 15 minutes until the base is crisp.
  5. Meanwhile, add the peas to a pan of boiling water; cook for 2-3 minutes until tender. Put the rocket in a blender or small processor with the pine nuts and 4 tablespoons of oil; season. Blend until finely chopped. Drain and refresh the peas under cold water, add to the blender and pulse once or twice, so some peas stay whole; season. Drizzle over the pizzas; scatter with a handful of rocket.
