Ali makes Jamie Oliver's delish pizza recipe - with grapes!

In the Kitchen

Ali has been itching to try out Jamie Oliver's pizza recipe for a long time - and finally she was able to!

"I finally made Jamies pizza with grapes. It was great! I didn't have pine nuts so I used chopped Cashews. I also used a mix of red and green seedless grapes. It got the thumbs up in our house!" - Ali.

Ingredients:

  • 150 g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • olive oil
  • 2  nice sausages ( veggie sausages are fine for vege option)
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 heaped tablespoon sun-dried tomato paste
  • 100 g red and /or green seedless grapes
  • 1 x 125 g ball of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts (or improvise with some other nuts chopped)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to full whack (240ºC).
  2. Pile the flour into a bowl with a small pinch of sea salt, add 80ml of water and mix into a dough, then knead on a flour-dusted surface for 2 minutes, adding a little extra flour, if needed. Roll and stretch out into a large oval (about 15cm x 30cm), then place in a large sturdy oiled tray.
  3. Cover with a clean damp tea towel and leave to rest while you put a small non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat, then squeeze balls of sausagemeat out of the skins into the pan (if using veggie sausages, roughly slice and use 1 tablespoon of olive oil for frying). Fry until golden all over, tossing regularly, while you peel the red onion and slice super finely, ideally on a mandolin (use the guard!).
  4. Pick the rosemary leaves and toss with the onion, a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and 1 tablespoon of oil until well coated.
  5. Spread the tomato paste over the dough, sprinkle over the dressed red onion, and spoon over the sausage balls.
  6. Toss the grapes into the pan for 1 minute, then spoon over the pizza with any juices, tear over the mozzarella and sprinkle with the pine nuts.
  7. Place the tray over a high heat on the hob until it starts to sizzle, then cook at the bottom of the oven for 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
