Pizza Tray with Anchovies, Courgettes, Garlic & Chilli

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious vegetables recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli for you to enjoy.

Anchovies are found in large numbers in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy, where they are a staple food and are eaten fresh or preserved in olive oil or salt. They’re high in antioxidants, and some research suggests they may be linked to longevity. If you prefer, replace the anchovies with black olives.

Feast your eyes on the finest pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Put the flour in a large bowl. Add the yeast to one side of the bowl and the salt to the other. Make a well in the centre and add the oil then gradually pour in 140ml warm water. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, mix together thoroughly to create a wet dough. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a round and place in a large oiled bowl. Brush the top with a little oil and cover with cling film. Leave to rest at room temperature for 20–25 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat. Add the courgettes, season with salt and fry for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Leave to cool. Put the tomatoes in a small bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil, the salt and the chilli flakes. Using your hands (you may want to use gloves to protect your hands and eyes from the chilli), squeeze the tomatoes to create a fine pulp. Set aside.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead just 3 or 4 times to knock out the air. Transfer to an oiled traybake tin, about 25 x 23cm and at least 2cm high. Using your fingertips, gently flatten the dough to extend to the sides (it should be about 1cm thick). Brush over a little oil, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise again in a warm place for a further 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/gas mark 7.

Remove the tea towel and spread the tomato mixture evenly over the pizza base, leaving a 1cm border clear. Scatter over the garlic and cooled courgettes and lay the anchovies on top. Bake for 12–14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, sprinkle over the oregano and bake for 1 further minute.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your pizza tray with anchovies, courgettes, garlic & chilli and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Tranci di pesce spada con patate saltate e gremolataSwordfish Steaks & Sautéed Potatoes with Gremolata

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

Stufato di agnello alla pugliesePuglian Lamb Stew

You’d have probably expected me to cook a seafood dish when visiting the picturesque cove of Polignano a Mare, in Puglia. However, despite facing the sea, the absence of safe moorings for boats has prevented the development of a fishing tradition in the town, so it relies on agriculture. The area is famous for its wonderful fresh vegetables – especially salad, olives and potatoes – so I decided...

BrodettoPrawn & Monkfish Soup

Once considered poor man’s food, Italian fish soup can now be found in the best restaurants along the Adriatic coast. From Trieste to Puglia you’ll find the so-called brodetti (broths), although they vary from region to region. We had countless bowlfuls on our coastal journey; each was unique and all were delicious. Here I’ve used prawns and monkfish, but any white fish would work just as well....

Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricottaPanettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

Originating from Campania and Calabria, paccheri is a popular pasta shape in the region of Marche. When filming there I made this dish using a selection of delicious cheeses.

If scamorza is unavailable, use a mixture...

Linguine al granchio e proseccoCrab & Prosecco Linguine

Venice’s Rialto Fish Market is a vibrant, bustling place full of amazing fresh produce. I loved the atmosphere – all the locals out shopping and the fishmongers loudly calling out their catch of the day. These guys start work so early that they can often be seen enjoying their lunch with a glass of prosecco by 9am! So you can see where I found the inspiration for this recipe. Fresh crab is paired...
