In the past, pizza was a food for the poor as it was cheap and nutritious at the same time. Now, we hardly consider pizza a healthy food which is due to the fact that we limit the toppings to cheese and meat in different variations. The recipe below is for vegan pizza which consists of mostly vegetables and offers a healthy alternative.

For the dough:
400 g flour.
150 - 170 ml water.
2 table spoons of corn starch.
2 table spoons of olive oil.
1/2 tea spoon of salt.
1 tea spoon of thyme (dried or fresh).
1 tea spoon of oregano (dried or fresh).
1 tea spoon of rosemary (dried or fresh).

For the tomato salsa:
1 yellow onion.
4 cloves of garlic.
4 tomatoes.
2 tea spoons of basil (dried or fresh).
salt and pepper.
For the pizza topping:
bell pepper.

First prepare the tomato salsa. Dice the onion and tomatoes.
Heat the pan and add little bit of olive oil (around 1 table spoon).
Add diced onion and pressed garlic.
When the onion starts to turn yellow, add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are soft.
Add salt, pepper and basil and set aside to cool down.
After the temperature is lower, blend the mixture until soft.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 200°C and prepare the dough.
Add all ingredients into a bowl and combine well until you have a solid dough ready. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Press the dough onto the baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.
When you have your pizza corpus ready, spread the vegetable salsa on the dough and distribute the rest of the vegetables - bell pepper (cut in small cubes), mushrooms (cut in smaller pieces), zucchini (cut into rings), corn, rucola and olives - on top.
Bake for another 15 -20 minutes.
