Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced (remove a wire rack first). Peel the courgette into thin ribbons using a vegetable peeler. Thinly slice the red onion. Grate the Cheddar cheese.

Place the pizza bases on the wire rack, rough-side down, and use the back of a spoon to spread evenly with the pizza sauce. Top the pizza with the courgette ribbons. Crumble over the feta (see ingredients list) and sprinkle with the Cheddar cheese.

Bake the pizzas on the rack for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted slightly and the base is crisp. TIP: Placing the pizzas directly on the wire rack helps the base to crisp up.

While the pizza is baking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5-6 minutes, or until softened. Add the balsamic vinegar, the water and brown sugar and stir to combine. Cook for a further 3-5 minutes or until dark and sticky.
