Mediterranean Veggie Pizza Mediterranean Veggie Pizza

Inspired by my recent travels to Liguria, I made this Mediterranean Veggie Pizza! Black olives, figs and oregano bring back wonderful mediterranean memories. A great way to switch up your pizza routine with new flavours –  and maybe you will  think of sunny vacation days too!



  • 250 g flour (I used flour with 30% whole grain)
  • 20 g fresh yeast (1/2 cube)
  • 3/4 cup (about 200 ml )lukewarm water
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Some salt
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


  • Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 1 Bellpepper
  • Brown Mushrooms
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 Figs
  • Black Olives
  • Spinach leaves
  • Red (radish) cress
  • Aubergine
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Radicchio
  • Dried oregano


  1. Start to prepare the dough by putting the flour in a big bowl. Form a whole in the middle and crumble the yeast in it. Add a pinch of sugar, some of the lukewarm water and stir the yeast using a fork. Leave covered for about 15 minutes at a place with room temperature.
  2. Then, stir the flour (from the sides) with the rest of the water and some olive oil, using a mixer first and then by kneading with your hands. The dough should be sightly sticky on your hands. Leave the dough covered at room temperature for about 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius (428 °F).
  4. Cut the aubergine in slices and sprinkle some salt on top (to take the bitterness away). After 5-10 minutes, wash the salt off and fry the aubergines in a pan with some olive oil.
  5. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and put it on a lightly oiled baking trey.
  6. Spread the tomato sauce on top of the dough. Sprinkle some finely chopped garlic, bell peppers, aubergines and mushrooms. Season with some salt & dried oregano and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Then, add the mozzarella slices and keep the pizza in the oven for another 10 minutes.
  7. When the pizza is done, add some spinach leaves, sliced figs, radicchio, olives, cherry tomatoes and cress.
  8. Cut the pizza into slices and enjoy!
