Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 225g strong white bread flour, plus extra for rolling
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp caster sugar
  • 1 x 7g sachet fast-action bread yeast
  • 150 - 180ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp La Española Mild & Light Olive Oil, plus extra for brushing

For the topping:

  • 4 tbsp La Española Mild & Light Olive Oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 400g butternut squash, peeled and cut into thin slices
  • 1 roasted red capsicum r from a jar, cut into thin slices
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp sherry or red wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 25g finely grated Manchego cheese

To serve:

  • La Española Extra Virgin Olive Oil Medium Flavour

Directions

  1. Place the flour in a large bowl and stir in the salt, sugar and yeast. Make a well in the centre then pour in warm water and La Española Mild & Light Olive Oil. Mix to form soft dough. 
  2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 6 minutes. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C. Brush a large baking sheet with La Española Mild & Light Olive Oil, then roll the dough out on the baking sheet into a rectangle measuring approx. 35 x 25 cm. 
  4. For the topping, heat the Mild & Light Olive Oil over a medium heat, add the onion, and cook for 3-4 minutes until soft and silky. Add the butternut squash and cook for 5 minutes until it starts to caramelise. Stir in the capsicum and vinegar. Season well and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Spread the tomato purée over the dough and top with the butternut squash mixture. Sprinkle over the smoked paprika and drizzle with any remaining oil from the pan.
  6. Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is crispy and golden on top.
  7. Drizzle with a little La Española Extra Virgin Olive Oil Medium Flavour and serve with a side salad. Enjoy!
