  1. Prepare a basic pizza dough mix from a packet, remove pre-bought pizza bases from their packaging, or follow our Pizza Dough recipe to make your bases. Divide the dough into sections, depending on how many pizzas you want to make (this recipe makes two medium).
  2. Mix together the prawns, fennel, lemon zest, chilli flakes and oil in a shallow bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and then cook on a griddle pan or on your barbeque. Turn the prawns once, until they’re pink in colour and cooked through, and then set them aside.
  3. Cook one side of your pizza base(s) until grill marks appear. Flip the pizza over and spoon over the cooked prawn and fennel mix, along with cherry tomatoes, capers and black olives.
