This salami and ricotta pizza was inspired by our favourite pizza joint in Sydney, Pizza Mario. Known as ‘The Salamino’, it was apparently Bono’s pizza of choice when U2 were touring in Sydney a few years ago.

Feel free to play around with the type of salami you use. I prefer something with a bit of heat because it works are a lovely contrast to the creamy ricotta.

For a vegetarian version, replace the salami with finely sliced portabello mushrooms.

1/2 quantity of pizza dough (recipe over here)
approx 6 slices salami
6 tablespoons ricotta
bocconcini, optional

1. Prepare oven and dough as per pizza base recipe.

2. Tear ricotta into chunks and scatter over the base. Repeat with the bocconcini, if using. Finish with the salami.

3. Bake for 5 – 10 minutes or until the base is golden and the potato is just cooked. Serve hot.

  • I tried making this pizza for lunch last week, and while we really enjoyed the topping combination, we were disappointed with the cauliflower crust (I was hoping it would work well because I am suddenly needing to be lower carb). I like all of the ingredients in the crust, but for me the combination ended up feeling upsetting to my stomach. I also missed the crispness of the standard pizza crusts I make. I will be using the topping combo again.

    • Yes it’s not the same as normal pizza Susan.

      I like to think of it as a different food group all together!

      Sorry the base wasn’t so great for your stomach. Glad you liked the toppings!
