Make sure you use the best tomatoes you can get your hands on for this simple (but outrageously delicious!) topping combo from Drew Huston aka @wildcatfalling. Drew’s awesome sourdough base works perfectly for this Pizza Monaro but you can use your favourite dough recipe if you prefer.

Pizza Monaro


1. For The Dough;

- Mix the bread flour and khorasan flour together in a bowl. Pour the water into a separate bowl and add the starter to the water. Mix with your hand to dissolve the starter before adding 10% of the flour mix. Mix with your hand till there are no dry bits. Cover, and rest for 10 minutes.

- Add the salt to the mix and knead briefly to incorporate before adding the remaining flour and bringing together into a dough with your hands.

- Tip the dough onto a clean work surface and knead for around 10 minutes. Form into a tight ball, cover and leave for 2 hours.

- When the time is up, divide the dough into 250g pieces and shape into dough balls. Place the dough balls into a container and cover. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Allow the dough balls to sit at room temperature for at least 2 hours before opening into pizzas.

2. For The Pizza;

- Slice the tomato and garlic and put aside and marinate in a little olive oil for 30-60 minutes.

- Working with one dough ball at a time, toss the dough ball in flour before opening into a pizza base and covering the base with parmigiano-reggiano.

- Place the marinated tomatoes around the perimeter of the pizza before topping with some buffalo mozzarella, a little extra sliced garlic and drizzling with olive oil.

- Slide the pizza onto a placement peel and launch into Roccbox to bake for around 2 minutes, rotating as required. Garnish with fresh oregano leaves and serve.
