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

    • 2 x pre-made gluten-free dough balls
    • 125g vegan mozzarella
    • 200g Italian chopped tomato sauce
    • 50g gluten-free flour for dusting
    • fresh basil leaves (rinse before use)
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.

How to make

Margherita Pizza
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.
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 a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Transfer to a pizza stone or baking tray with parchment paper and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. Please be aware, cook time will vary depending on oven temperature, so check the pizza frequently to avoid burning. If you are using an Ooni or equivalent oven, cook for approx 60 seconds.
Rinse the fresh basil leaves and place in the centre of the pizza.
Season the yoghurt with black pepper, salt and cumin powder to taste, mix well, then leave to one side.
Your perfectly prepared pizza is ready to enjoy!

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.
