Ingredients
  • Dough:
  • ½ lb whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs
  • 6 fl oz hot water
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 14 oz can tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 small can anchovies, drained and washed
  • 6 Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
Instructions
  1. First, make the dough – In a jug, measure 6 fl oz of hot water (not boiling) and whisk in the sugar and yeast. Leave this until there is a frothy head. Now add the flour, salt and pepper and herbs I na bowl and add the yeast mixture. Mix to a smooth paste and knead into a dough. The dough should not stick to the sides of the bowl. If it does, add a little extra flour.
  2. Next, take the pie tin and coat with olive oil. Place the dough in the tin and push it down into the tin, allowing it to come up the sides. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to stand for 30 minutes. While the dough is rising, make the filling.
  3. To make the filling, place a tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan and heat over a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and fry until it’s becoming soft. Add the tomatoes, basil and garlic and simmer for 25 minutes uncovered until the sauce has reduced by about a third. This should now be a fairly thick paste. Add the tomato puree and mix.
  4. Now, uncover the dough and push it back up the sides of the pan, making a well for the filling. Pour in the tomato sauce, sprinkle the grated cheese over, add the anchovies and chopped olives and drizzle a little more olive oil over the top along with a sprinkling of dried Italian herbs. Bake for 20 minutes and serve hot with a fresh salad and a nice Chianti.
