Who says pizza has to be boring, put aside your normal margherita or pepperoni and try something a little different this week... you won't regret it

Preparation time: 15 minutes - Cooking time: 30 minutes - Total time: 45 minutes - Serves: 2

1 tbsp olive oil
3-4 echalion shallots, thinly sliced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
plain flour, for dusting
220g frozen wholemeal pizza dough ball, defrosted
4 ripe figs, sliced

100g gorgonzola piccante, chopped
handful wild rocket leaves

Shop Ingredients from Waitrose

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.
