60ml water (1/4 cup)

8-10 (80g) cherry tomatoes, halved
30g rocket leaves
Your favourite fresh herbs
1 Set your oven to 180°C and preheat for 15 minutes.
2 Line a 30cm pizza tray with baking paper (not greaseproof paper).
MAKE THE BASE
1 Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine into a smooth liquid batter.
2 Pour the mixture into the center of the pizza tray lined with baking paper, and spread it to the edges. You can use the back of a spoon to shape it evenly.

1 Spread the pasta sauce evenly over the base
2 Add the higher protein cheese first

BAKE THE PIZZA
1 Pop the pizza back into the oven for a further 10-15 Minutes or until golden brown on top.
2 Once cooked, remove from the oven and top with the rocket leaves before serving (the heat will wilt the leaves nicely).
