SPAM - Perfect on a pizza

5/5 Despite its bad name (in food and in email), Spam can be so brilliant on a pizza. It also tastes much less greasy when hot. Jerry, aka Chef (talk)

I just love Spam so this is a must-make. Spam cooks up really well when grilled at a very high heat so is ideal for a Stone baked pizza.

If you really don't like the idea of using Spam, use fresh ham instead.

Mise en place


  1. Make 1 pizza per person
  2. Dust the work surface with fine yellow cornmeal
  3. Stretch or roll the dough into two thin rounds
  4. Prick the pizza all over with a fork. This prevents it puffing up too much and burning while it is cooking
  5. Place the pizza dough on a pizza peel that has been dusted with fine yellow cornmeal
  6. With a deft move, slide the pizza dough from the pizza peel, on to the pizza stone.
  7. Cook for about 2 minutes on one side only or until lightly browned.
  8. Remove from the oven, flip over and add the topping.
  9. Repeat for the second pizza whilst you prepare the first.
  10. Drizzle the pizza with olive oil and spread the pizza with ½ of the tomato sauce
  11. Top with torn mozzarella and sliced Spam.
  12. Add a final drizzle of olive oil or for a spicy touch, some chili oil.
  13. Bake for 3 or 4 minutes or until the cheese browns a little - watch it carefully as it can burn easily.
  14. Remove and sprinkle with torn basil.
  15. Keep the fist pizza warm at the bottom of the oven whilst you make the second.
  16. Serve hot

Chef's note

If you don't have a pizza peel use an upturned plate or a flat baking tray, dusted with fine yellow cornmeal and some deft handwork to slide the dough onto the stone.
