To make the sauce, heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and celery, fry until softened. Add garlic, carrot and courgette to the pan and fry for two minutes.

Use a blender to blitz the tomato sauce. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, tip the pizza mix into a bowl and pour in oil with water. Gradually mix together, to have a sticky dough. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pour in the dough and press out, with wet hands, until it covers the tray evenly. Cover with cling film and set aside to rise for 30 minutes at room temperature.
