Blackberry Pizza With Ricotta, Pistachios & Honey

Put your Nutella and bananas away, there is a new dessert pizza in town! It’s the Blackberry Pizza With Ricotta, Pistachios & Honey.

I should probably mention that we tested this recipe at 10am on a Monday morning and not only does it kick the Monday blues,  I can confirm it also makes for an excellent breakfast pizza. (Shhh, don’t judge us!)

Method

  1. Light up your Uuni wood-fired oven and pre heat for 10 to 15 minutes (keep that door closed!)
  2. While you wait for your Uuni to pre heat, grind up the pistachios in a mortar and pestle (or place them in a sandwich bag and use the back of a large spoon/rolling pin to crush).
  3. Mix 1 tablespoon of honey into the ricotta
  4. Flour your peel and prep your dough, ready for the toppings
  5. Spread the ricotta and honey mix evenly over your pizza base and top with the blackberries
  6. Slide the pizza into your Uuni wood-fired oven and close the door. Using your Uuni pizza peel, rotate every 15 to 20 seconds for an even coverage until cooked and then remove. (If you’re not cooking your pizza in 90 seconds, watch this video!)
  7. Top with crushed pistachios and a drizzle of honey

Along Came the Honey Sriracha Pizza 

We’ve been really impressed by the images and videos coming in via our social media platforms. (If you haven’t checked out our Instagram please do:)  Recently an Instagrammer named @alongcamepizza has been wowing us with his Uuni-baked creations. – so we asked him to do a blog post on his recipe for Honey Sriracha Pizza.

Over to you Christopher…..:)

Hi I’m Christopher Beattie,  a  26 year old Satellite Systems Analyst that lives in San Francisco, California. I love cooking all types of food from Italian to Indian, but my absolute obsession is pizza!

My fiance organized a surprise “pizza-making” date night for us almost 4 years ago, and little did she know that would spark my love for the pizza craft.

Since then I have been working tirelessly to perfect my somewhat traditional Neapolitan dough, and techniques to produce authentic woodfire pizza at home (which happens to be a really, a tiny apartment).

Along comes Uuni! It is just not practical for me to have a large, traditional wood- fired oven due to limited-space.

The Uuni has dramatically improved my pizza skills, and more importantly, the taste of my pizza. I hope my blog helps to inspire other crazy enthusiasts!

Here’s a recipe from one of my latest cooking sessions:

Honey Sriracha Pizza 

 

Ingredients: 

Dough – naturally leavened:

– “00” grade flour

– 20% leaven

– The leaven contributes both water and flour so it is important to consider that when calculating the total hydration. My leaven is 80% water, so it supplements an additional 56% flour and 44% flour depending on the initial flour amount.

– 65% water

– 2.5% salt

Sauce –

– Any ole’ honey will do

– Sriracha

Fried buttered tofu (cubed or sliced, extra firm)

Honey

Sliced scallions

A few sprigs of cilantro (coriander)

A sprinkle of Sesame Seeds

Method:

– Pan fry the tofu in a generous amount of butter until golden brown. Make sure they are cool before they are placed on the raw dough.

– Cut the scallions finely, and place in a bowl of ice water to get them to curl into unique swirls. Evenly spread on the pizza after it has been baked.

– Place cilantro on after the pizza has been baked.

– The sesame seeds can be cooked prior or after depending on if they are already roasted. Aesthetically, they looked better when sprinkled after the pizza has baked.

Tips!

  • Know your audience when applying the sriracha! It will be spicer after the pizza has baked, and make sure to balance out with honey.

Uuni Roasted Vegetables [Christmas Recipe]

For our next winter recipe, we are going to show you the best technique to add roasted vegetables to your dinner table.

We all know how tight things can get in even the best of ovens whilst cooking that all-important Christmas dinner. It always starts out well enough, with the meat and potatoes happily roasting away in the oven.

But by the time you’re preparing the Yorkshire puddings, roasted veg and stuffing – tension is running high and baking trays can start to get a bit jumbled. Somebody might even suggest that you add the Yorkshire puddings to the oven at the end!

Don’t allow your roast dinner to be compromised in this way! Especially not if you have a shiny Uuni 2 in your garden ready to save the day. When the going gets tough, scoop those wood pellets and light up your Uuni.

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Brussell sprouts
Parsnips, chopped
Carrots, chopped
Honey
Fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to season
Olive oil for roasting

Method
Par-boil your brussell sprouts, chopped parsnips and carrots on a medium heat for 8-10 minutes.
Drain, and drizzle with honey, and olive oil.
Empty your vegetables into a small pan that fits in your Uuni.
Now season your veg with rosemary, salt and pepper.
Put the tray into the hot Uuni and have your oven glove and spoon at the ready. Remove from the heat and rotate the vegetables often to keep an even colour.
Remove when veg is toasty brown.
