What You Do
- Combine yeast, salt and flour in a large bowl; make a well in the centre. Stir in the water and 2 tablespoons of the oil until mixed well. Knead dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled bowl; cover with cling film. Stand for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
- Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until onion is light golden. Cool.
- Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-assisted. Oil two 30cm pizza or oven trays.
- Divide the pizza dough in half, roll each half into a 25cm round; place on tray. Spread onion mixture between pizza bases; top with sweet potato, slightly overlapping the slices, and pumpkin seeds.
- Bake pizzas for 15 minutes, swapping trays halfway through cooking time, or until crust is golden. Serve the pizza topped with chilli, cheese and rocket.
