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.
