About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious vegetables recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli for you to enjoy.

Anchovies are found in large numbers in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy, where they are a staple food and are eaten fresh or preserved in olive oil or salt. They’re high in antioxidants, and some research suggests they may be linked to longevity. If you prefer, replace the anchovies with black olives.

Feast your eyes on the finest pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Put the flour in a large bowl. Add the yeast to one side of the bowl and the salt to the other. Make a well in the centre and add the oil then gradually pour in 140ml warm water. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, mix together thoroughly to create a wet dough. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a round and place in a large oiled bowl. Brush the top with a little oil and cover with cling film. Leave to rest at room temperature for 20–25 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat. Add the courgettes, season with salt and fry for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Leave to cool. Put the tomatoes in a small bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil, the salt and the chilli flakes. Using your hands (you may want to use gloves to protect your hands and eyes from the chilli), squeeze the tomatoes to create a fine pulp. Set aside.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead just 3 or 4 times to knock out the air. Transfer to an oiled traybake tin, about 25 x 23cm and at least 2cm high. Using your fingertips, gently flatten the dough to extend to the sides (it should be about 1cm thick). Brush over a little oil, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise again in a warm place for a further 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/gas mark 7.

Remove the tea towel and spread the tomato mixture evenly over the pizza base, leaving a 1cm border clear. Scatter over the garlic and cooled courgettes and lay the anchovies on top. Bake for 12–14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, sprinkle over the oregano and bake for 1 further minute.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Torta di cioccolato e fragoleChocolate & Fresh Strawberry Cake

Italians from the south don’t bake cakes all that often but my sister Marcella makes this for me whenever I visit and I love it. The combination of moist chocolate cake and fresh strawberries is wonderful and I can never only have one slice; in fact there is always a fight over who gets the last piece (I normally win!) The cake is also fantastico made with raspberries!

Insalata di Couscous con Olive e AsparagiCouscous Salad With Olives, Asparagus & Grana Padano

Couscous is so easy to prepare, but it does need the addition of some really good flavours to make it come to life. This rainbow salad is a fantastic source of vitamin C and is surprisingly filling. It’s great as a main course or you can reduce the quantities and serve it as a side with barbecued meats or grilled fish.

Linguine ai Frutti di MareMixed Seafood Linguine with Chilli & Cherry Tomatoes

I have to admit that my mother is not the best cook in the world unless cooking traditional Neapolitan dishes she has grown up with. However, this has to be one of her best creations that she prepares for me every time I go to visit her. It is very important for this recipe to use tinned cherry tomatoes because if you use the fresh ones, the sauce will be too watery. Do not overcook the prawns or langoustines...

Torta di Carciofi e SpinaciArtichoke & Spinach Tart

I absolutely love tarts and it’s a shame that not many people cook them anymore, maybe because it is thought to be quite a difficult dish to prepare. Some of my friends have tried this dish and they say that it’s definitely one of the easiest and tastiest tart recipes that they have ever made. I often choose this kind of recipe when I have a dinner party because if there is any left over, I’ll...

Ciambelline al limone e vino biancoLemon & White Wine Biscuits

A speciality of northern Italy, these delicious biscuits are often served as an Easter treat. I have tried them with red wine and they work well too. If you have any biscuits left over, store them in an airtight container – they will last up to a week. Serve with a dessert wine.

Spaghetti ai Carciofi, Radicchio, Piselli e Vino BiancoSpaghetti with Artichokes, Radicchio, Peas and White Wine

Perfect for a midweek supper, this dish is quick and easy to make and low-fat too. Radicchio is very popular in Italy, particularly in the north, where it grows mainly in the Veneto region. Prized for the rich red colour and slightly bitter flavour of its leaves, radicchio is also a rich source of vitamin K.
