National Cheese Pizza Day Celebration

Today marks the National Cheese Pizza Day and it would be rude not to celebrate!

National Cheese Pizza Day prep

What isn’t there to love about cheese? It comes in wheels so you can roll it, you can be arrested for eating certain types, it can help you sleep and be good for your teeth, it’s used to de-ice roads and it’s older than the written word!

As it is National Cheese Pizza Day, we thought it would be fitting to use a few varieties of cheese and have gone with a trio of with blue, mozzarella & cheddar.

While cheese is nice and all, we have broken the rules with some leftover mushrooms and a few shots of Bourbon. Keep scrolling to see the kitchen on fire!

National Cheese Pizza Day Recipe


What do you need?
160g dough
Olive oil

1. Insert pizza stone & preheat Uuni for 10-15 minutes.
2. Grate as much cheese as you can eat and as many varieties as you can find. The more the merrier!
3. Slice the mushrooms and sauté in a pan. You can do this in your Uuni Sizzler or on the stove top.

5. With a quick dip of the pan, we used the gas flames to light the Bourbon. Don’t pour straight from the bottle as the whole thing could go up in flames (oops!).
