Mise en place

Preheat the oven to 220° c (425° F - Gas 7)


  1. Assuming you now have 2 pizza bases, rolled out and risen from the pizza dough recipe:
  2. Make the pizza up on a lightly greased, or lightly floured baking tray. It's very hard to transfer once made up, without a pizza shovel.
  3. Divide the ingredients in two:
  4. Working on one half of the pizza (the base, when it's folded over), spread the tomato sauce over one half, leaving a clear edge to seal
  5. Break the mozzarella into chunks and sprinkle over the sauce, followed by the capers, the sliced meat and half of the Parmesan cheese
  6. Peel and quarter the egg and place around the pizza
  7. Fold the pizza over, dampen the seal edges with a brush and water and press the edges to make a seal so it can puff up.
  8. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese
  9. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes - keeping your eye on it!

Chef's tip

For an even better, more authentic pizza, use a pizza stone.
