‘Nduja and Marinated Artichoke Pizza

This artisan recipe from Mutti Tomatoes, featuring spicy, spreadable ‘nduja, could be a game-changer for your pizzeria.




 

Ingredients:

9-oz. dough ball
2 oz. pizza sauce
1½ oz. fontina cheese, shredded
½ oz. roasted garlic, roughly chopped
1½ oz. marinated artichokes, chopped
1 oz. ’nduja
¼ oz. fresh oregano
Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano to taste
Extra-virgin olive oil to taste

 

Directions:

Stretch the dough ball to 12”. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the dough. Add the fontina cheese, roasted garlic, marinated artichokes and ’nduja. Top the pizza with Parmigiano-Reggiano and lightly drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Bake the pizza at 800° in a wood-burning oven for 90 seconds. When the pizza has finished baking, garnish with fresh oregano.

 

Spread the Salami

Looking for a meat topping that’s spicy and spreadable? A little dab of ’nduja will do ya. Pronounced like it’s spelled (sort of), ’nduja is a pungent salami that originated in Calabria. Recipes vary, but most versions of ’nduja are made with a carefully balanced mix of Calabrian peppers for a blast of sweet heat. Chefs in Calabria melt it on pizza, smear it on bread or toast (paired with ricotta or burrata cheese) or brush it on grilled meats or fish.
