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.

Once you have blended the ingredients together, that’s pretty much job done – it smells amazing too. You coat the fish and there you have it – ready to be cooked. You can cook it there and then or even prepare in the morning and cook.

Linguine alla PuttanescaLinguine in a Southern Italian Sauce with Anchovies & Capers

There’s nothing quite like the taste of a good pasta puttanesca. It’s a real Italian classic and, when I’m back in Naples, my mother cooks this for me at least once a week. She always says that it reminds her of my late father – apparently this was the dish they both ordered on their first date. Well, it must have been pretty good – otherwise I wouldn’t be here, would I?

Crostatine Piccanti di Asparagi, Ricotta e ParmigianoAsparagus, Ricotta, Chilli and Parmesan Tartlets

Asparagus is one of the great delicacies of the vegetable world, and my asparagus tartlets quite rightly make it centre of attention. It is cooked very briefly, then plunged into cold water to retain its texture and bright green colour. You can use pecorino cheese rather than Parmesan if you like a saltier flavour.

Bucatini al pesto sicilianoBucatini with Sicilian Pesto

Classic pesto is a specialty of Liguria, in northwestern Italy. However, Sicilians have their own equally delicious, lesser-known version – just a few additional ingredients take it in an entirely new and exciting direction. In this recipe I’ve used bucatini pasta, which is basically a thicker version of spaghetti with a hole all the way through, but of course pasta of any shape will be fine.

Bruschetta Di Fave e MentaBroad Beans and Fresh Mint Bruschetta

Bruschetta is definitely one of the main dishes for an Italian antipasti. The freshness of the mint together with the broad beans is a fantastic combination that will fill you up and yet won’t leave you feeling heavy. You can substitute the broad beans with butter beans and if you don’t have fresh mint, use fresh leaf parsley or chives.

Rotolini di Zucchine Ripieni di Ricotta, Noci e Peperoni GrigliatiCourgette Roll-Ups with Ricotta, Walnuts & Chargrilled Peppers

One of the great things about these little stuffed courgette rolls is that they don't require any cooking and can be prepared ahead. All that's needed is a bottle of chilled Italian wine, some warm, crusty bread on the side and good friends to share them with. You can use hazelnuts instead of walnuts if you prefer.
