Place the polenta, water and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook, stirring constantly for 3 to 5 minutes, until thick. Pour into a pie dish or shallow baking dish. Cover with cling film and refrigerate until chilled.
Preheat the oven to 230 C / Gas 8. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and pepper and cook, stirring until onion is soft. Set aside.
Spread the marinara sauce over the chilled polenta base. Top with the onion and pepper mixture, pepperoni, tomato and oregano. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Sprinkle cheese over the top and continue to bake for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese is melted. Cut into 6 wedges and serve hot.
