Spicy Pizza Diavola


Pizza Crust:

  • 450g strong bread flour
  • 5g fast action yeast
  • 40ml olive oil
  • 10g salt
  • 280ml warm water

Pizza Toppings:

  • Spicy Salami
  • 1 package mozzarella
  • A handful of fresh rocket

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. Grandma’s Hot Sauce
  • 1 jar of passata (500g)
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 tsp. dry oregano
  • 1 tsp. dry basil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • To make the crust; mix the wet ingredients into the dry in a bowl and, once combined, knead on a dusted surface for 15 minutes – you want a very soft and stretchy dough. Put the dough back into the mixing bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place to rest for an hour. Tip the dough on to a clean work surface and divide into four roughly 200g portions. Roll each one into a tight, round ball. Put a good glug of olive oil in a large roasting tin and roll the dough balls around, coating them with oil. Leave covered with a damp tea towel in a warm place to rise for an hour or so.
  • For the sauce; Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and add the garlic, cook for a minute then add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer on low for 20 minutes.
