  • 500g fresh pizza dough
  • ½ cup basil pesto
  • 250g cooked crab meat
  • 2 x 250g mozzarella balls, drained, torn
  • 4 preserved lemon quarters, white pith and flesh removed, zest thinly sliced
  • 60g basil leaves
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. Place 2 large baking trays in the oven and preheat the oven to 220°C. Divide pizza dough in two, roll into two 30cm bases. Place each base on a piece of baking paper and prick all over with a fork. Transfer to preheated trays and bake for 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove from oven and spread over pesto. Scatter with crab and mozzarella, return to oven and bake for a further 5 minutes or until the base is crisp and cheese is melted.
  2. Scatter with preserved lemon and torn basil leaves, squeeze over lemon juice and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil to serve.
