  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 echalion shallots, thinly sliced (approx. 3-4)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 220g frozen wholemeal pizza dough ball, defrosted
  • 4 ripe figs, sliced
  • 20g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 100g gorgonzola piccante, chopped
  • 1 handful wild rocket leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 240°C, gas mark 9 (or to the oven’s highest setting). Put the oil and shallots in a large frying pan with a pinch of salt. Cook over a low-medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring often, until soft and golden. Add the vinegar and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Set aside to cool slightly.

  2. Use a little flour to dust the work surface and rolling pin, then roll out the pizza base to a 30cm-diameter circle. Transfer to a large baking sheet and cover with the shallot mixture, figs, walnuts and gorgonzola.

  3. Bake at the top of the oven for 8-10 minutes (or 12 minutes if the oven is a little under 240°C). Season with black pepper and finish with the rocket.
