A GOOD pizza is hard to beat. We’ve experimented with various bases: cauliflower bases have an overpowering taste; cheese-only bases are too fatty; and sweet potato bases are too high in carbs. So here we have it - our perfect pizza base! It’s made from the humble courgette and almonds. It is both crisp and supports the taste of the topping without overwhelming it - and the kids love it. Italy’s ‘pizzaioli’ (pizza-makers) are divided between those who prefer cow’s milk mozzarella and those who’d only dream of using buffalo milk mozzarella. The latter contains more water but the taste is superior.
