3 Sweet Pizza Recipes that Prove “Bake Off” NEEDS a Pizza Week

It’s the one thing new Great British Bake Off is missing (and no, we’re not talking about Mary Berry): it’s Pizza Week. As any GBBO fan will know, each episode has a different bakery theme. In the past, we’ve seen everything from bread to botanical, Tudor to tart – but even Noel Fielding, who would surely jump at the chance to top up his tan *ahem* in Italy for the history feature, has yet to convince producers to stray as far as pizza.

Strawberry, Feta & Balsamic Pizza
Originally created for Wimbledon, this delicious dessert pizza isn’t only for summer. Mixing sweet and salted flavours, this recipe calls for sweet strawberries, crumbled Feta cheese and fresh basil leaves, with a honey and balsamic vinegar glaze drizzled over the top – leaving just a little bottom exposed *cough*.

Although the GBBO bakers could cook these in the ovens in the Bake Off tent, for best results, we recommend using a traditional wood-fired oven. All the above recipes were originally posted by Uuni, creators of the Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven, available from Cuckooland.
