Utensils & Essentials

Chopping board, pizza stone (recommended) or baking tray, rolling pin, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.

    • 2 x pre-made dough balls
    • 125g mozzarella
    • 200g tomato sauce
    • 50g semolina for dusting
    • fresh basil leaves (rinse before use)


    • pigs in blankets
    • diced turkey breast
    • cranberry sauce
Remove the pre-prepared dough balls from the fridge 3 hours before cooking, allowing them to warm to room temperature.
We wrap our dough in cling film to keep it fresh. Use a little flour on your hands and the dough to separate it easily from the film, when removing from the fridge.

How to make

Christmas Pizza
Roast your turkey and pigs in blanket while your dough balls are getting ready. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Place the turkey and pigs in blanket in a dish, season the turkey with olive oil, salt, pepper and your choice of herbs, and cook for about 25-30 minutes. Set aside.
Preheat your oven to its maximum temperature, recommended between 270 and 300°C. The hotter, the better!
Take the 2 pre-prepared dough balls and stretch each one into an individual base by pressing with your fingers and pushing the dough out to the edges. Keep rotating, then very carefully stretch the dough over the backs of your hands into a pizza base shape of approximately 11 to 12 inches in size. If you find this authentic Italian method difficult, do feel free to use a rolling pin.
IMPORTANT: if using gluten-free doughballs, please follow the method card on the other QR code provided, to prepare your pizza base. Then proceed as follows below.
When your pizza base is ready, spread the tomato sauce evenly over the top, leaving a border of dough at the edges for the crust.
Add the mozzarella and then place the other toppings across the pizza. Leave out the cranberry sauce and basil, which will go after the pizza is cooked.
Transfer to a pizza stone (or baking tray covered with parchment paper) and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. Please be aware that the cooking time will vary depending on oven temperature, so check the pizza frequently to avoid burning. If using a conventional fan oven, the cooking time should be between 7 and 15 minutes. If you are using an Ooni or equivalent pizza oven, cook for approx 60 seconds, following the appliance instructions.
Once cooked, tranfer your pizza onto a plate or chopping board, and garnish with the fresh basil and cranberry sauce.
Your perfectly prepared pizza is ready to enjoy!
Season the yoghurt with black pepper, salt and cumin powder to taste, mix well, then leave to one side.
Remember to Recycle!
All the food packaging in your recipe box, as well as the box itself, is completely recyclable, so make sure you do your part to help save the planet!

To dispose of the ice packs, cut them open and pour the gel down the sink – it's totally nontoxic. In fact, you can even use it to give your houseplants a little boost.
