This pizza combines bright, roasted veggies and two types of cheese for a flavourful vegetarian 'Za'. It might not be pizza as Italians know it, but it sure does hit the spot.

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Thinly slice the courgette into rounds. Place the courgette, peeled & chopped pumpkin, the salt and a drizzle of olive oil on a lined oven tray. Season with pepper. Toss to coat, then spread out evenly. Roast until just tender, 15-20 minutes.
While the veggies are roasting, thinly slice the red onion. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar(for the onion), water and brown sugar and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes.
Lay the pizza bases on a flat surface, rough side down. Spread the pizza sauce evenly across the pizza bases using the back of a spoon.
Top the pizzas evenly with the roasted pumpkin, courgette and the caramelised onion. Sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the pizzas. Place the pizzas directly onto the wire oven racks and bake until the cheese is melted and golden, 10-12 minutes. TIP: Placing the pizzas directly onto the wire racks helps the base to crisp up.
While the pizzas are baking, thinly slice the pear. In a medium bowl, combine the pear, rocket leaves, balsamic vinegar(for the salad) and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat and season.
Crumble the cheese (see ingredients) over the pizzas. Cut the pizzas into slices and divide between plates. Serve with the rocket and pear salad. TIP: Garnish your pizzas with a little of the salad if you like!
