Recipe Shed: My wife’s Superduper Megaloaded Surbocharged Pizza

There are several culinary things my wife does better than me, and here in reverse order are those things:

5. Poach an egg (I can’t stand them)

4. Cook fish (I’m allergic)

3. Throw together an Eton Mess

2. Make cupcakes

1. Make pizza. The finest Goddam pizza you’ll find either east, west, north or south of Naples.

So here it is, my lovely woman’s Superloaded Surbocharged Homeade Pizza.

FOR THE DOUGH (you’ll need a breadmaker)

5 fl oz water
3 tsp olive oil
8 oz strong white bread flour
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp salt

Mix and prove the dough for 1hr 30 mins. Knock it back and roll it out.


3 garlic cloves, chopped and sprinkled over the base
Tomato and oregano paste, thinly spread on base
Handful grated cheddar cheese
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
A few slices of salami
A few slices of chorizo
A few slices Parma ham
1 red pepper, roasted, peeled and sliced
1 red chilli, de-seeded and chopped
1 ball mozzarella, sliced
8 brown mushrooms, sliced
2-3 vine tomatoes, sliced

Layer the toppings on the pizza base and cook at 180C/Gas 4 for 20 mins

Sprinkles with torn basil leaves and freshly ground black pepper.

    What is an Eton Mess?

  2. It’s good, very good, but there’s nowhere near enough chilli on that pizza for me.
