2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and stand in a warm draught-free place for 30 minutes, or until dough doubles in volume. Remove dough from bowl, knead on a lightly floured surface, then roll out to make a 25 cm/10 in circle. Place in a 25 cm/10 in nonstick frying pan.
3. To make topping, brush eggplant (aubergine) slices with oil and cook under a preheated hot grill for
3-4 minutes each side or until golden. Spread pizza base with tomato sauce then sprinkle with oregano and basil. Top with eggplant (aubergine), onion, red pepper, mushrooms, pineapple and olives. Sprinkle with cheese.
4. Cover pan and cook over a low heat for 35 minutes or until pizza crust is cooked. Place pizza under a preheated hot grill and cook for 3 minutes or until top is golden.
