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.

Chicken Pizza With Mushrooms & Pesto

It’s not exactly new information that Chicken Pizza is a dish made in heaven. I’m a vegetarian and even I accept this as 100% FACT!

But something that everybody doesn’t necessarily know, is that you don’t need to eat a pot noodle to satisfy your chicken and mushroom craving.

With a 2 minute cooking time, this pizza will actually cook faster. What’s more, it comes with the added bonus of pesto! Win win.

Chicken Pizza Recipe

Classic dough
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.

Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste.

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.

Four Cheese Pizza

It took us a while to decide which cheeses we wanted on our classic 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!

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 Ham & Pineapple Pizza

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

Recipe
Classic dough
Classic sauce
Pineapple, skinned and diced
Ham, chopped
Mozzarella, sliced

Method
First light up your Uuni and leave the fire to heat up.
Spread your classic dough over a floured pizza peel and cover with classic sauce.
Now add the mozzarella slices, chopped ham and pineapple.
Slide the pizza into the Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
