You'll need

2 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthways on a mandolin 2 tbsp olive oil 180 gm ’nduja (see note) ½ onion, thinly sliced 250 gm fior di latte To serve: basil leaves and green salad   Pizza dough 3 gm dried yeast (about 1 tsp) 900 gm “00” flour 15 gm fine sea salt 50 ml olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For pizza dough, stir yeast and 500ml warm water in a bowl to dissolve yeast and set aside. Place flour and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, then, with motor running, add yeast mixture and knead until very smooth (12-15 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, drizzle with oil and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to prove until doubled in size (4-6 hours). Divide dough into 2 balls and roll out on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over medium heat. Combine zucchini and oil in a bowl, season to taste, toss to combine and cook, turning occasionally, until golden (1-2 minutes). Set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Place pizza bases on oven trays lined with baking paper, scatter with zucchini, ’nduja, onion and fior di latte and bake until golden and crisp (7-10 minutes). Scatter with basil, season to taste with pepper and serve hot with green salad.

Note 'Nduja is a spicy spreadable salami; it's available from select butchers and delicatessens. The pizza dough can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator. Remove it from the fridge two hours before making to bring it to room temperature.
