4 anchovy fillets
½ fresh red chilli, sliced
1 heaped teaspoon small capers, rinsed if salty
extra virgin olive oil
zest and juice of ½ lemon
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
50 g mozzarella
1 tablespoon finely sliced fresh flat-leaf parsley
freshly ground black pepper
Make sure you get hold of good-quality tinned Spanish anchovies for this, otherwise it's not worth making it.
Recipe for pizza dough and tomato sauce can be found here.
Cut the anchovy fillets in half lengthways and add to a bowl with the sliced chilli – feel free to use as much as you like – the capers, a couple of tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and the lemon zest. Squeeze over a little lemon juice as well and mix up. Let the anchovies sit in the marinade for 15 minutes. Smear the tomato sauce evenly over the pizza base and scatter torn-up pieces of mozzarella over the top. Evenly lay over the anchovy fillets, scatter over the capers and chilli, and sprinkle with a little parsley and seasoning. Drizzle with the leftover marinating oil and cook until crisp and golden.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
