Dough - Add the fl our and salt to a bowl and combine, then make a well in the centre. Mix the sugar, yeast and olive oil into a jug with the warm water. Add into the well in the bowl and mix until a dough is formed. Cover and set aside to prove.

2. Swiss Cheese Fondue – Mix the EC Béchamel Sauce Mix and the EC Cheese Stock Mix with the water. Bring to a simmer stirring constantly and cook out for 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated cheese until melted. Add the egg yolk and stir. Cool and refrigerate.

3. Polpa Tomato and Vodka Sauce – Put a pan on medium heat and add in the olive oil and shallot. Sweat with a lid on until soft. Add the tomato paste, chilli fl akes and EC Vegetable Stock Mix and cook for one minute uncovered. Add the tomatoes and vodka and bring back to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes until the sauce has slightly reduced and thickened. Cool and reserve.

4. Ruben Sauce – Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.

5. Knock back the pizza dough and split into 4 even pieces. Roll out on a floured surface into a 10-inch round base. Spread out a ladle of the vodka sauce. Layer on some of the pastrami and spoon on some of the fondue.

6. Heat your oven to its highest heat setting (if you have a pizza stone this can be heated too). Place the pizza in the oven on a tray or the stone and cook until the dough has risen, and the cheese has melted. This will take 3-5 minutes depending on the oven.

7. Top with the ruben sauce chopped parsley and pickles. Cut into 6 slices and serve.
