INGREDIENTS

FOR THE BABY MARROW BASE

  • 4 cups grated baby marrows
  • 125ml mozzarella, grated
  • 80ml ground almonds
  • 45ml pecorino, finely grated
  • 5ml dried oregano
  • 1 egg, beaten

FOR THE TOPPING

  • 250g mozzarella, grated
  • 250g mushrooms, sliced
  • 250ml feta, chopped
  • 2 roast chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 chilli, sliced or chopped (optional)
  • handful coriander, chopped

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 230°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Blitz the baby marrow and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for about 5 minutes or until cooked. Tip the baby marrow onto a clean tea towel and leave to cool a little.
  2. Once cool enough to handle, scrunch up the tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can, to prevent a soggy base. Stir in the remaining ingredients until well combined.
  3. Press out onto the prepared tray into a 33cm circle. Bake for about 15 minutes or until firm and starting to brown.
  4. For the topping, sprinkle mozzarella over the base and top with mushrooms and feta. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  5. Combine the chicken, onion, chilli (if using) and coriander and sprinkle over the pizza.
