Pepperoni Pizza [Make Your Own Recipe]

The classic Pepperoni Pizza is probably the most popular pizza of all time! It’s not to be messed with…

(BUT if you have a penchant for spicy food and you do fancy messing with it. I would say that our Diablo Pizza recipe would be the perfect place to start!)

Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

Classic dough
Classic sauce
Pepperoni slices
Mozzarella, sliced
Handful of fresh basil to garnish

Method
First, get your Uuni fire going.

While the fire is heating up, flour your pizza peel and spread your classic dough over the top.

Cover with the classic sauce, followed by your sliced mozzarella.

Finally, add your pepperoni slices and slide the pizza into the oven.

Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat.

Bechamel Sauce Recipe for Homemade Dishes

This Bechamel Sauce recipe is an essential one that will come in handy for lots of delicious dishes. It was actually the first thing I ever learned how to make in home economics class! Granted, the recipe I was taught was a lot less exciting than this one.

There are many more basic versions of this sauce out there, but none as flavoursome as this one! Historically, béchamel sauce was first used in Tuscan and Emilian cuisine, and was soon imported into France by Henry IV’s second wife, Marie de’ Medici. Oh la la!

Although it’s now widely seen as a basic staple of home cooking, it’s still a sauce fit for royalty in our eyes! This versatile sauce is used for loads of great meals, including: lasagne, fisherman’s pie, casseroles, pasta dishes, homemade creamy soups, and (the best dish of all time) cauliflower cheese!

WARNING! Once you start using this béchamel sauce, you’ll never go back…

Bechamel Sauce Recipe

450ml whole milk
1 onion, with skin removed, and chopped in half
1 bay leaf
1/2 a tsp of nutmeg
50g butter
50g plain flour
Salt & pepper to season

Method
Pour the milk into a saucepan, and add the onion halves, bay leaf and nutmeg.

Gently bring the milk to the boil. Allow to bubble gently for 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave to infuse for 15 minutes.

While you wait for the milk to infuse, take out a second saucepan and melt the butter over a gentle heat. Once the butter has melted you can start adding your flour. Stir continuously to make a paste. This is called a ‘roux’.

Next, remove the onion halves and bay leaf from the infused milk and discard.

Gradually add the milk to the roux, stirring continuously.
Continue to stir the mixture over a gentle heat for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce has become thick and creamy.

Finally, season with salt and pepper. Remember to keep it on a low heat and stir often until you are using the sauce. If you leave it to go cold or don’t stir it frequently enough, it will solidify.

Diablo Pepperoni Pizza [Homemade Woodfired Recipe]

Pepperoni is famous for being the most commonly ordered pizza. What is it about cured meats that makes the pizza-eating population tick? Even the best recipes can be improved upon, and that’s why we’re taking pepperoni one step further with our new Diablo Pepperoni Pizza recipe.

For a pizza that’s similar to pepperoni and boasts even more delicious meats, we think the diablo deserves a bit more credit for its loveliness. Also, as we’re inveterate fans of spicy food – the added red chilli is a further bonus!

We’ve used frankfurter and chorizo as our extra meat toppings, adding tastes of Spain and Germany to a traditional (and much loved) Italian-American classic.

Diablo Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

Classic dough
Classic sauce
Pepperoni, sliced
1 frankfurter, sliced
Chorizo, sliced
1 red chilli, chopped
Mozzarella, sliced
Basil

Method
First light up your Uuni.
Next spread your classic dough over a floured pizza peel and cover with classic sauce.

Follow this with some slices of mozzarella and chopped chilli.

Add your sliced pepperoni, frankfurter and chorizo to the pizza.

Slide the pizza into the Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.

Remove from the heat, season and garnish with fresh basil.

Quattro Formaggi Pizza (Four Cheese)

It took us a while to decide which cheeses we wanted on our classic Quattro Formaggi Pizza also known as the Four Cheese pizza.

In the end we opted for mozzarella, cheddar, blue cheese and feta. We had high hopes that we could somehow fit parmesan into the mix as well. But then that would be a five cheese pizza, and we wouldn’t be able to shout ‘Quattro Formaggi!’ whilst making it.

Or we still could, but it wouldn’t be quite the same!

Quattro Formaggi Pizza Recipe

Classic dough
Classic sauce
Mozzarella, sliced
Feta, crumbled
Cheddar, grated
Blue cheese, crumbled
Basil leaves

Method
Usually lighting up your Uuni is the first obvious step with any recipe, but this pizza is so packed with cheesy goodness, it’s probably wise to prep some it before you get started.
Slice your mozzarella, grate your cheddar cheese and crumble some blue cheese into a bowl.
Next crumble your feta, but keep this separate from the other cheeses as this will be added to the pizza after cooking.
Now light up your Uuni and flour your pizza peel.
Spread your classic dough over the peel, followed by the classic sauce.
Next add your blue cheese, cheddar and mozzarella and slide the pizza into your hot Uuni.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat and quickly sprinkle with the crumbled feta. The feta will be heated through slightly, but not completely melted.
Season to taste, and garnish with a handful of fresh basil leaves if you like.

Hawaiian Pizza with Ham & Pineapple [Woodfired Recipe]

Aloha! We’re getting exotic with our recipe this week as it’s our last of the chilly month of February. Today it’s the Hawaiian Pizza. Yay!

But did you know that Hawaiian pizza didn’t actually originate in the beautiful and paradisiacal island of Hawaii? It first popped up in Canada, featuring Canadian bacon instead of ham. And now, it’s most popular in Australia. Madness! Regardless of where it came from or where it’s eaten, it deserves every bit of its success and world domination. Here’s our take on this classic pizza recipe.

Hawaiian Pizza Recipe

Pineapple, skinned and diced
