Luke Hines' Perfect Pizza

In the Kitchen

The Food Show returned to Auckland for 2019 and to celebrate, we created a Food Show recipe - Luke Hines' Perfect Pizza.


  • 2 zucchinis, grated and squeezed of excess liquid
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced
  • 2 streaky bacon rashers, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons basil leaves
  • 1 handful rocket leaves
  • 2 tablespoons ricotta or dairy-free alternative
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 180°C and line a pizza tray with baking paper.

Add zucchini, coconut flour, Italian herbs, salt and 2 of the eggs to a bowl and mix together well to form a batter. Mould into prepared pizza tray and bake for 6–8 minutes, or until par-baked.

Remove base from oven and spread tomato paste evenly over the surface. Lay over tomato slices and bacon, then carefully crack over the remaining eggs towards the centre to ensure they don’t drip over the side. Transfer to oven and bake for a further 5 minutes, or until eggs are cooked.

Remove pizza from oven and top with basil, rocket and ricotta. Drizzle over olive oil and serve.
