Pizza Bianca

Serves 2
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

Greatest pizza ever was in Sardinia: no fancy topping combo, just a simple combination of two basic flavours: perfectly crisp, hot, fast cooked pizza base, and rich super creamy melted mozzarella. Use New Zealand mozzarella, and – so long as you can get an oven hot enough - the result’s sensational.



  • I make my pizza dough in the breadmaker.
  • Manufacturers vary, but this is a good quantity:
  • 300g high grade bread flour
  • ½ Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp milk powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 210 ml warm water
  • 250g mozzarella cheese

  1. Put all dough ingredients in the breadmaker; mine has a pizza dough programme that takes 45 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to its highest setting. If using a pizza stone, place it near the top of the oven. Drain the mozzarella and slice into 1 cm dice.
  3. Knock down the dough. On a floured surface, flatten it into a round and arrange the mozzarella dice leaving a clear edge around the outside. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over and cook straight away - the perfect pizza is supposed to cook in around three minutes, but I usually find it takes a little longer than that.
