Prepare the defrosted dough according to the pack instructions, then roll to make a pizza base 30cmx23cm. Sprinkle the polenta over a baking tray, then put the dough on top. Scatter with the leeks and shallots, dot over the cheese and sprinkle over the sage and walnuts. Bake for 8-10 mins, until the base is crisp and golden.
