Recipe of the week: Pizza with rocket and goat's cheese

I haven't made this pizza for a while, but it's utterly delish. The freshness of lemon juice and peppery rocket make this perfect for Spring. (Rocket is what we call arugula at home.) The recipe & image come from the River Cafe Cookbook Green.


100g rocket / arugula
Pizza base (preferably home-made)
Olive oil
100g black olives, pitted
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 dried red chili
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 small goat's cheese roll
1/3 ciabatta loaf, crusts removed and processed to crumbs
1 tbsp fresh thyme
Maldon salt, pepper & lemon juice

Place olives in a bowl, add parsley, chili and vinegar and leave to marinate. Cut cheese into slices, coat with olive oil and then with breadcrumbs mixed with thyme.

Place the cheese discs on the pizza and sprinkle any remaining thyme & breadcrumb mixture on the pizza. Place the marinated olives on the pizza and drizzle the pizza with some of the marinating mix. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake pizza until cheese is melted and the crust is crisp. Dress with the rocket leaves and a squeeze of lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
