This is a really simple dish, but the flavour combination is just out of this world. It is honestly one of the best pizzas we have ever eaten.

Honey, Fig, Bacon and Zucchini Pizza Recipe

Itʼs got all the good stuff: some vegetables, some fruit, a little meat and some grains – an incredibly tasty and satisfying meal.

Serves 4
Time: 15–20 minutes


4 soured wholegrain pizza bases (recipe here)
extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
unrefined salt
ground black pepper
2 zucchini, finely sliced
200 g bacon, finely sliced
10–15 small figs (600–800 g in total), sliced thickly or cut into quarters
1 tablespoon unprocessed honey
½ bunch of basil, leaves picked


Preheat the oven to 250°C fan-forced. Place the pizza bases onto greased baking trays.

To each, add a good glug of oil, some garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper and spread out across the bases. Layer with the zucchini, bacon and figs and finish with a drizzle of honey. Bake for about 12 minutes until everything is just starting to brown and look caramelised.

To serve, transfer the cooked pizzas to wooden boards and sprinkle with freshly torn basil leaves. Cut into slices and enjoy!
