1
To start the pizza, prepare the base. Heat the water, oil and honey until lukewarm. Crumble in the yeast and leave to stand for 10 minutes, so that the yeast activates
  • 7g of dried yeast
  • 20g of honey
  • 20ml of water
  • 60ml of olive oil
2
Gradually mix in the plain flour and knead for 10 minutes to form a smooth dough. Rest the dough in a bowl lined with a little olive oil, and cover with a tea towel until doubled in size - about 45 minutes
  • 350g of plain flour
3
Meanwhile, prepare the tomato sauce. In a saucepan, add the chopped tomatoes and shallot. Add the sugar, Pernod and lemon juice. Bring the ingredients to the boil, then remove from heat. Put the tomato mixture into a blender and purée. Set aside
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 shallot
  • 100g of sugar
  • 1 tsp Pernod
  • 1 dash of lemon juice
4
Prepare the beans and asparagus. In a saucepan full of salted water, place the broad beans and boil for 1 minute. Then place the asparagus in the water with the beans and boil for a further minute until tender. Remove from the salted water and refresh in ice water until cool. Drain, then slice the asparagus spears in half
  • 12 asparagus
  • 75g of broad beans
5
Prepare the fennel bulb by cutting the bulb into quarters and removing the pieces of the bottom core. Peel shavings of fennel from the cut side of each quarter with a mandolin or peeler
6
Once the dough has doubled, knead again and separate the dough evenly into 6 small rounds. Roll out each round of dough to approximately 12cm diameter. The dough should be fairly thin. Spread on the tomato sauce
7
Top the pizzas with the sheeps milk cheese, asparagus, shaved fennel and garden herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • 150g of sheep's-milk cheese
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 75g of green olive
  • 1 tbsp of flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp of fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp of chervil
  • 1 tbsp of chives
  • salt
  • pepper
8
Using a large wooden cutting board or a pizza peel, place each pizza on a barbecue or in a wood fired oven, on a pizza stone or skillet if possible. Cook until the base is crisp, for about 8 minutes. Serve the pizzas warm
