  • 125g passata
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely grated
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 175 g pack chargrilled artichokes in a herb dressing
  • 200 g mozzarella cucina (cooking mozzarella)
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • 2 x 220g balls The Northern Dough Co frozen pizza dough, defrosted and at room temperature
  • 2 -3 slices Unearthed French Torchon Ham
  • 2 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
  • 16 basil leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 240°C, gas mark 9, and put 2 large baking sheets in the oven to heat up. Mix the passata, garlic and oil in a bowl and season; set aside. Halve the artichokes, then cut the mozzarella into 1.5cm cubes.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball of pizza dough to a rough circle about 30cm in diameter. Put each on a sheet of baking parchment. Spread each with 1⁄2 of the passata, then scatter over the mozzarella and artichokes evenly. Roughly tear the ham and arrange over the top. Scatter with the Parmigiano Reggiano and 1⁄2 the basil leaves, and grind over a little black pepper.

  3. Transfer the pizzas, on the parchment, onto the hot baking sheets (or cook in 2 batches if necessary) and bake for 8-10 minutes until puffed up and golden. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before scattering with the remaining basil leaves, then serve.

Cook’s tip

Mozzarella cucina contains less water than traditional mozzarella, so is ideal for melting on a pizza. If you can't find it, use a ball of roughly torn mozzarella instead, just pat dry with kitchen paper first.

And to drink...

Waitrose Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand (75cl), is a refreshing white wine with citrus and passion fruit flavours.
