Straight out of Taranaki, Egmont Honey is a family business that’s appropriately named after the towering mountain that overlooks the entire region. After years of successfully exporting its Manuka to the world, they decided to share the honey love with fellow Kiwis. Now available in Countdown Supermarkets, Egmont Honey has two extremely popular varieties on offer – A delicious Lemon ‘N Honey and a Raw Honey.

1 cup mozzarella
¼ cup ricotta
1 cup fresh rocket
1 tbsp Egmont Honey Raw Honey, warmed

In a bowl, combine the warm water, sugar and yeast. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.

Cut the dough in half, and roll out into two 1cm thick circles. Place onto greased trays.
Bake in an oven preheated to 220 degrees for 15 minutes, then carefully remove from the oven and spread the bases with the tomato passata and sprinkle with mixed herbs. Season, and top evenly with the mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven for a further 20 minutes or until the base is golden and the cheese has melted.
