Some basic Basic Pizza Dough

For the topping
1 red capsicum
1 yellow capsicum
Salt to taste
2 tbsp olive oil, plus more to drizzle
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 pinch dried oregano
1 pinch salt
1 large mozzarella
Fresh basil leaves

Tops 3 flat pizzas

Wash the capsicum and then place whole in the oven at 180°C until they smell cooked. Carefully remove the capsicums from the oven and place inside a paper bag for 5 minutes; this will help the skin come off easily. Peel the capsicums, remove the seeds and cut into small slices, then place into a bowl and stir in the olive oil and a little salt. Empty the content of the chopped tomato can into another bowl, add a little salt and the dried oregano. Top the pizzas with the chopped tomatoes, then add a few slices of mozzarella, a few strips of capsicum and some olives. Bake in a preheated oven at 240ºC (475ºF), or the highest setting you have, for 7 to 10 minutes. Once ready, top with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh basil leaves.
