OK, I know, pizza is an Italian tradition but we are allowed to drift slightly aren't we? In truth pizzas are very similar all over the world (except for 'new-fangled' thick crust pizzas etc. Anyway the use of goat's cheese and anchovies give this pizza at least a hint of France...and you can make it with French bread instead of pizza bses


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
  • 2 large red onions, sliced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, skinned and seeded
  • 1 (2 1/4 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black peppercorn
  • 1 (13-inch) uncooked pizza base / dough crust or French bread cut longways
  • 4 ounces goats cheese, crumbled
  • 1 can anchovy fillets


  1. Sauté garlic and onion in oil until onion is transparent and set aside.
  2. Cut tomatoes into chunks and combine with olives, parsley, basil and peppercorn.
  3. Top dough crust with onions, tomato mixture, and goats cheese.
  4. Drain the anchovies (reserving oil) and add to pizza. Drizzle with anchovy oil.
  5. Bake in preheated 500 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
