Recipes - Italy's Finest

I had this amazing combination of flavours on a pizza years ago and it has always stuck with me.  The salty anchovy, spicy pepperoni, creamy bocconcini and sweet fresh basil create a flavour explosion that will have you thanking Italy for their food genius! 

1-2 tbs pizza sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
12-16 thin slices spicy pepperoni
12-16 bambini bocconcini
8-12 anchovy fillets
basil leaves, to serve

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 230°C.
Step 2 - Place pizza base on a lightly greased pizza tray. Spread pizza sauce over base and sprinkle mozzarella. Distribute pepperoni, boccincini and anchovies on top.  
Step 3 - Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until base is crisp. Top with basil leaves and serve with a simple, lightly dressed green salad.


Amounts of pizza sauce and cheese can be increased or reduced, depending on how saucy or cheesy you like your pizza.
