Preheat the oven to 200 C.
In a food processor (or mixing bowl), throw in all the ingredients for the base and mix well. It actually becomes quite a sticky dough consistency.
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Spread the dough out on the paper using wet hands and flatten as much as possible. I managed to stretch it out to be 1cm thick and almost the entire large baking tray. Use your judgement here!
Bake for 30 minutes in the oven. Keep an eye on it – you want it to get brown but not burnt! (And my oven isn’t the best in the world!)
While it’s baking, make your sauce (if you’re using it). Dice the carrots, onion and garlic and sauté until the onions turn translucent and the carrots are pretty much cooked.
In the food processor, puree the tomatoes and add the tomato paste and basil.
Pour this over the sautéd vegetables and let simmer for a few minutes.
When the pizza base is done, spread the sauce over the base (I used about half) and then top with toppings of choice! I used ground, cooked pork, black olives and drizzled some homemade pesto over.
Stick it all under the grill for about 5 or 10 minutes until the toppings are warm. Or the cheese is melted if you’re using cheese on top.
