7. Pulse in feta cheese.

8. Quarter the onion, trim and slice the courgettes, and seed and quarter the peppers.

11. Give the batter another whisk, then pour it over the veggies. Return the pan to the oven for 30 minutes.

12. When puffed up and golden, reduce the heat to 190°C for 10-15 minutes, or until crisp around the edges.

13. Pour the pesto on top and serve.
