Crime against rocket

OK, so I have a confession to make....usually I have an endless supply of rocket in my garden for picking, however I have only just repurchased some seeds, so there is nothing in my garden at present. Yesterday when I discovered I needed some for my pumpkin, goat's cheese and rocket pizza I had to resort to purchasing some from the shop. It's not even organic!
Anyway, I'm glad that's off my chest, and below is the recipe for my Pumpkin, goat's cheese and rocket pizza. It's very yum!

Easy pizza dough:
2 cups of plain flour
8 grams of dry yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup of warm water
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, add oil and water. Mix together to
form a soft dough. Turn out onto a dry floured surface and knead dough. Return to mixing bowl and cover with cling wrap. Leave for an hour or two in a warm position until dough has risen. Dough should be double in size. Then punch the dough down and gently knead it for a further one minute. Roll the dough out to desired thickness on a pizza tray.
Make sure you use a glass or ceramic bowl as cling wrap will be firm.
Then for the topping grill some thin pieces of pumpkin that have been tossed lightly in olive oil and sea salt. On your pizza base drizzle a little olive oil fist, then place your grilled pumpkin on next. Thinly sliced red onion can also be add at this time. Unfortunately my kids
don't like it so I leave it off. The cook pizza in very hot oven until cooked to your liking. After pizza is cooked add crumbled goat's cheese on top and a big topping of rocket before serving. You can further drizzle olive oil over the top before serving if you please. Enjoy!
