Mix all the dough ingredients together to form a shaggy dough. Transfer it to a surface and knead until smooth. Placed in a greased bowl and cover. Let sit for 30-45 minutes

While the dough is resting, place a baking tray inside the oven and set it to preheat at 250°C

To make the topping first slice the tomatoes in half, then remove the seeds and squeeze out the juice.

Cook the mushrooms in a pan until they’re dry. Then cook the beans until they’re slightly drier.

Add the tomatoes, pepper, onion, tomato paste, and spices to a food processor and blend together. Add the mushrooms and lentils and pulse to combine. Stir through the parsley

To build, divide the dough into about 8-10 balls. You can make these as big or as small as you’d like.

Roll the dough balls out into a thin circle on parchment paper so it’s easy to transfer Spread a thin layer of the topping onto the dough circle and pat to adhere.

Immediately transfer to the oven onto the baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom and on the edges.

As an adult, she trained in restaurants before heading to culinary school, where she mastered the basics of French cooking, baking and pastry – her biggest passion today. She might have fine dining training, but Tara still has simple taste...she’d eat chicken nuggets every day if she could. When she’s not experimenting in the kitchen, you can find Tara try to work out, reading cookbooks and finding new hobbies besides food.
