Pizza England Recipe

Pizza England Recipe

Makes 1 pizza.

The perfect pizza when watching England play. So simple and fast to make, meaning you can spend more time with friends and family watching the big game.

Yet the beauty of simplicity is that it often doesn’t mean sacrificing flavour. The triple cheese layered into the pizza provides a perfect blend of taste, stretch and saltiness, with the streaks of tomato sauce adding a bitter sweet element to cut through the cheese.

Pizza England is completely vegetarian, yet adding some pepperoni along the lines of the cross will satisfy the meat eaters out there.




Ensure you have prepared your Great Balls of Flour pizza dough ball so it is rested and has got up to temperature. This will make it really easy to press and stretch your dough ball into the pizza base. 

Fire up your pizza oven, indoor pizza oven, or kitchen oven to it’s maximum setting (250ºC), waiting until your stone or steel has had sufficient time to get to temperature. Remove your Great Balls of Flour Pizza Tomato Sauce from your fridge and allow to warm for 45 minutes before building your pizza.  

Sprinkle your work surface with flour and semolina mix and roll your dough ball lightly covering it all over to ensure it doesn’t stick to the surface. Spread and stretch like in this video. 

Sprinkle your pizza peel or parchment paper with flour and semolina mix. Transfer to your pizza peel, or parchment paper if cooking in a home oven.  Remember to shuffle the pizza base a couple of times throughout the building process to ensure your base doesn’t stick to the peel/parchment paper.  


Cooking guide

Empty 100g of ricotta cheese into a bowl, adding the herbs, salt and pepper. Mix together so the herbs are fully mixed into the cheese. Thinly grate the parmesan and set aside. Slide your pizza base onto the peel or paper which has been lightly sprinkled with flour and semolina. Give it a shuffle to ensure it’s not stuck when you come to launch it. 

Spoon on the ricotta cheese mix, spreading it all over the base as you would tomato sauce. Drizzle the tomato sauce from the top right through the centre to the bottom, in a line then do the same across it so you’re creating the shape of a cross. Spread the sauce out with the back of a spoon to create a thicker cross. Sprinkle small amounts of mozzarella in each quarter and sprinkle over the parmesan in each quarter. If you’re adding pepperoni layer this onto the sauce. Cook as per the guide for your preferred pizza cooking method. Remember to rotate frequently if using an Ooni or similar style of oven or rotate after 3 minutes if using a home oven, which is show in the image above. Check our how to video tutorials for help and guides on getting the best from cooking in your oven. 

Once cooked, grab a beer sit down and enjoy the game.
