    First, make the sauce: sweat the onions in some olive oil with the crushed garlic. Add the tomatoes and simmer for three minutes. Thicken the sauce with the grated Strong Cheddar Sheese and simmer for two minutes. Season to taste. Let the sauce cool.

    Making the base: sieve the flour in a bowl and add the vegetable margarine. Rub the margarine and flour together. Slowly add the soya milk, salt, pepper and salad herbs. Mix well and make a dough. Roll out the dough and lay it in a greased pizza tin. Brush the edges of the pizza base with olive oil and prick the base with a fork several times. Let the base rest for 10-15 minutes if you want deep-pan, or go straight to step 3 if you want a thin crust.

    Preheat the oven to 220C/430F/Gas 7 while you put the pizza together. Spread the Original Creamy Sheese onto the base, 2cm from the edge. Cover the Creamy Sheese with the tomato sauce. Decorate with peppers, mushrooms, olives, salad herbs and grated Mozzarella Sheese. Finally, drizzle olive oil over the pizza and sprinkle paprika over the top. Season to taste.

    Bake the pizza for about 18-20 minutes until the dough is crisp and the topping is cooked. Finish off under the grill to get that real crispy golden finish.

    Serve with a tossed mixed salad of sprouted beans, rocket, lolla rossa and oak leaf lettuce, some handfuls of basil, and a little broad leafed parsley. Chop some avocado over the top too, if you like, and drizzle with chilli-infused olive oil over everything. Finally, squeeze a lime over the salad – and if you are sharing the pizza with friends try some cracked pepper potato wedges on the side.
