Method

Step 1

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 250°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Sunflower seeds: Place a small pan on high heat and dry toast the sunflower seeds until lightly browned – about a minute. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn. Remove from stove and set aside.

Step 3

Bacon: Place a frying pan on a medium-high heat and cook the bacon with a little olive oil for 3 minutes until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 4

Chilli: Place the chilli slices in a small bowl with a few glugs of olive oil.

Step 5

Cucumber: Use a potato peeler to slice the flesh of the cucumber into ribbons. Discard the core with the seeds.

Step 6

Cucumber salad: Place the cucumber ribbons in a bowl with the mint and dress with a drizzle of olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Sprinkle over the toasted sunflower seeds and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7

Pizza: Spread the pizza sauce thinly over the bases with a spoon, leaving a 1cm edge. Top with the sliced tomatoes, then sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese and add the bacon. Place the pizza on an oven rack and cook for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges are golden. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with the basil.

Step 8

Serve the pizza with the cucumber salad. You can top the pizza with the chilli slices in olive oil, or serve them on the side.
