Ingredients

For the pizza base (dough)

  • 200 g flour
  • 100 g still water
  • 5 g olive oil
  • 2 g yeast
  • 2 g salt
  • 5 g sugar

For the tomato sauce

  • 200 g skinless tomatoes
  • 2 g dry oregano
  • 2 g dry basil
  • 2 g garlic
  • 2 g salt

For the topping

  • 20 g green beans
  • 20 g mini pickled onions
  • 50 g red and yellow bell peppers
  • 30 g zucchini/courgettes
  • 15 g mushrooms
  • 2 g dry basil
  • 1 g black pepper

Method

To make the base

Mix all ingredients of the base in a bowl, except the flour – the flour must be added last. Mix everything well with hands until you get a fluffy dough. Keep the dough stored for 1 hour (at room temperature).

To make the sauce

Mix and blend, with a blender, the tomato and all the other ingredients for the sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil in a pan over a medium heat.

To assemble

Divide the dough into two pieces and stretch each piece so as to make a round pizza base. Spread the sauce and add the vegetables onto each piece.

To cook

Cook the pizza in the oven preheated to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 for 10 minutes. And it is ready!

The Mziuri Cafe is situated in Tbilisi, Georgia. Located in one of the city’s most beautiful parks, the cafe functions as a social enterprise, with profits being reinvested into the development of the park. Social responsibility is a key part of the business and the cafe is the first in Georgia to be accessible to blind and visually impaired customers and those using wheelchairs. The Mziuri Cafe organises open-air film screenings and runs a variety of entertainment as well as educational activities for children and youth. It started supporting MFM in April, 2017, replacing meat dishes with vegan alternatives on Mondays. One of the salads served on Mondays is named after Paul McCartney.
