Ingredients

For the Veggie Pizza:

  • 4 x ready-made pizza bases or wraps
  • 500ml (2 cups) BIS tomato and basil pasta sauce
  • ½ butternut, peeled and diced into 1-2cm pieces
  • 15ml (1 Tbsp) butter
  • 3 onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 30ml (2 Tbsp) brown sugar
  • 250ml (1 cup) Food Lover’s cheddar
  • 30g wild rocket or basil leaves, to garnish
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

For the Veggie Pizza:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the pizza bases or wraps onto a baking sheet and spread the pasta sauce over the bases.
  2. Place the butternut on a baking tray, season to taste and drizzle with a dash of olive oil. Roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked and golden. Set aside until needed.
  3. Heat a frying pan on a low heat, adding the butter. Once bubbling, add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5-8 minutes, then add the sugar and cook for another 10 minutes or until caramelised. Season to taste.
  4. To assemble the pizzas, top the pizza bases with the caramelised onion and roasted butternut. Sprinkle the cheese over the pizzas and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bases are crispy.
  5. Garnish the pizzas with wild rocket or basil and season to taste.
