  1. To make the tomato sauce, heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and 1 garlic clove for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and mixed herbs. Bring to the boil and gently simmer, stirring regularly, for 8-10 minutes, or until the tomatoes begin to break down and the sauce develops a thicker consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the pizza dough according to the packet instructions. Set aside one-third of the dough for the foccacia bread.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it is roughly 30cm across and 5mm thick. Transfer to a baking tray and evenly spoon on the tomato sauce. Arrange the mushrooms, pancetta and mozzarella on top and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roll out the dough for the foccacia bread into a 1/2cm thick oval. Use your fingers to make rows of indentations in the dough. Transfer to a baking tray and brush with 1 tbsp oil, sprinkle with the rosemary and season well with salt.
  5. Bake the pizza and foccacia bread in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pancetta and pizza crust are crisp and the foccacia bread is golden.
