3 guys. 1 day: 180 Uuni Pizzas. [Pop-up Restaurant Idea]

Editors note: This is a special guest blog post from our friends at  Buddies’ Bistro who made 180 Uuni Pizzas in one day.

Hei! We are the guys behind Buddies’ Bistro  a Pop-Up Pizzeria launched at the last Restaurant Day in Helsinki.

Being ambitious pizza makers for years and having used Uunis since their very first iteration, we decided to take them to the next level! Our goal was to use our Uunis and prepare unforgettable pizzas for as many people as possible within one day. After careful planning and several test cooks we were ready for the big day!

We prepared 20 kilograms of dough ready to be shaped into perfect pizza bases and finalised our shortlist of perfect toppings down to 3 menu options for the day.

We set up our restaurant in the middle of a park in central Helsinki. We fired up the Uunis and were ready to serve our 1st customers. 1,2,3, people were flocking to our restaurant.. and we couldn’t take a break in the whole day!  8 hours later we were done, having prepared 180 pizzas and completely running out of ingredients!

Not bad for 3 guys using 2 ovens. Restaurant Day was a huge success. We produced 22.5 pizzas an hour, which translates to only about 2.5 minutes per pizza including taking orders, preparing and baking. Now that’s fast.

Here we would like to share the recipe of our best-selling pizza that day, the Tirolese.

 Uuni Pizzas Ingredients:

 

– Classic dough

– Passata di pomodoro – seasoned with salt, olive oil and oregano

– Crumbled Mozzarella

– Sliced Tyrolean Speck  / Prosciutto

– Chanterelles

– Caramelised Onion

– Fresh Rosemary

 Method

Light up the Uuni. While waiting for the Uuni to get hot, rinse the chanterelles and cut them into halves. Take the ham and cut it into small pieces too. Once the dough is shaped into a pizza base, cover it with a few spoons of tomato sauce.

Top with some pieces of mozzarella, then place the pieces of ham and chanterelles . Finally put some caramelised onion on the pizza and it is ready to go into the Uuni for 2/3 minutes. Don’t forget to turn it at least once so it gets cooked evenly.

When the pizza is out, add some fresh rosemary and then enjoy 🙂

 

Eat great pizza, buddies!

Cheers,  Luki and Juuso- Buddies’ Bistro.

Asparagus Pizza with Sweet Potato & Feta Cheese

The combination of sweet potato and salty feta and fresh asparagus flavours makes this Asparagus Pizza one of Uuni’s most popular vegetarian recipes! You get the perfect roasted veggie taste by popping the sweet potato and asparagus in a pan in the Uuni with a bit of oil and seasoning for a couple of minutes prior to topping your pizza with it.

The results: Shazam! Magic.

Asparagus Pizza Recipe

 

– Classic dough

– Classic sauce

– 4 asparagus spears

– 1/2 small sweet potato

– Mozzarella

– Handful of crumbed feta

– Salt & pepper to season

Method

First light up your Uuni.

While you wait for your Uuni to heat up, wash and peel your sweet potato.

Once fully peeled, chop the sweet potato into very small cubes (about 1-2cm).

Now, wash your asparagus spears and chop the ends off. Place the vegetables in a roasting tin with oil and seasoning. (rosemary tastes great in there too!) Take out of the Uuni after a couple of minutes when browned nicely.

Next, spread your classic dough over a well-floured pizza peel and cover with a few tablespoons of classic pizza sauce.

Add a few slices of mozzarella, followed by your roasted asparagus spears and sweet potato cubes.

Slide your pizza into the Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Use your pizza peel to turn the pizza at least once during this time to ensure an even cook and colour.

Once the Asparagus Pizza crusts are looking golden brown, remove the pizza from the heat and crumble a small handful of feta over the top. Season to taste.

Classic sauce
Chicken fillets, sliced
2 tsp of basil pesto
Mushrooms, sliced
Mozzarella, sliced
Olive oil
Fresh basil (to garnish)

Method
First light up your Uuni.

While the Uuni’s heating up, pour a dash of olive oil into a frying pan and add the chicken pieces. Season and fry until the chicken starts to turn golden brown. You can do this in your Uuni, or step inside and use your kitchen hob.

While the chicken is frying you can flour your pizza peel and spread your dough over the top. Don’t forget about that chicken though!
Remove your chicken from the heat and place it on top of the Uuni while you add your sliced mozzarella, mushrooms, and some small dollops of basil pesto to the pizza base.

Add the chicken to the pizza and slide into the Uuni.
