Pizza Quattro Stagioni

(Serves four)


  • 650g strong plain flour
  • 5g fast-acting yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 50ml milk
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 100g chestnut mushrooms
  • 1 courgette
  • 50g black olives
  • 100g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 mozzarella balls
  • 50g pepperoni


  1. For the pizza dough, mix the flour, yeast, salt and milk together and knead for ten to 15 minutes until smooth and soft. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave to double in size (a warm environment helps). When ready, divide into four pieces. Roll out to a circle – about 12in in diameter and 3mm deep – on a floured surface. Place on a baking tray over a sheet of parchment.
  2. For the topping, finely chop the onion and crush the garlic and cook in oil, without browning, for five minutes until soft. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes.
  3. Add the oregano, then season and sweeten (with sugar) if required. Set aside. Slice the mushrooms and courgettes and lightly sauté in oil for five minutes. Slice the olives and halve the cherry tomatoes.
  4. Tear the buffalo mozzarella into chunks and mix with a little oil and oregano.
  5. Coat the base with the tomato sauce, then add the toppings of olives, mushrooms, tomatoes and pepperoni – they can be mixed or laid out in quarters.
  6. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Season to taste and drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Bake at 180C fan for ten minutes or until cheese colours. Serve hot.
