Directions

  1. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the center.

  2. Mix the yeast, sugar and oil into the milk mix and leave for a few minutes.

  3. Pour into the well and mix in the flour with clean hands, a little at a time, until it all comes together to form a sticky dough.

  4. Sprinkle a little flour onto the surface and knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until it is soft and springy to the touch.

  5. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until the dough has roughly doubled in size.

  6. Divide into 4 pieces and roll out into circles.

  7. Add the Robertsons Mixed Herbs, tomato paste and canned tomato into a bowl and stir well.

  8. Spoon onto the bases and spread around, leaving a 2cm edge.

  9. Top with the cheese, boerewors, peppadews and onions, sprinkle with Robertsons BBQ Spice and bake in a hot oven or weber until the base is crispy and the cheese has melted.

  10. Serve immediately garnish with fresh rocket.
