The base of this affordable pizza is made from maize meal cooked in stock, spiked with cheese and herbs. Top with roasted veggies and more cheese, or your favourite meaty pizza topping.


  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced 
  • 1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced  
  • ½ butternut, peeled and thinly sliced 
  • 2 T olive oil 
  • 2 cups water 
  • 1 cup light vegetable stock 
  • 250 g super maize meal 
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 240 g mild Cheddar, grated 
  • ½ cup fresh basil and parsley , chopped

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 220 C.
2. Drizzle the peppers and butternut with olive oil and season. Roast for 10 minutes.
3. To make the pap, heat the water and stock in a large pot then whisk in the maize meal.
4. Add a pinch of salt and allow to come to a simmer then turn down the heat and cover the pot. Allow to cook very gently for 10-15 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in half of the cheese and chopped herbs.
5. Pour the cooked pap into a lined, greased baking tray. Top with roasted peppers and butternut and the remaining cheese.
6. Bake for 10 min until cheese is melted and golden.
