Today see’s a nationwide celebration of all thing pizza taking place! To mark National Pizza Day, we asked the talented team at Fired Up to tell us about there fave recipe and where you can sample some of their delicious oven-baked creations! Over to you Fired Up… :)
Our ethos is keep it simple, keep it traditional and use the best Italian ingredients you can find!
Pizza is one of the nations favourite dishes because it literally caters for all – old, young, vegetarians, vegans & meat eaters. It’s diversity makes pizza wonderful!
We researched all of our pizza’s by travelling to Naples which is home to our favourite pizza’s and we based our dough flavourings and toppings around the Italian style. Through a lot of research, we bought our findings back to the Streets of Cambridge and the people of this fine city, who have been enjoying our pizza for 8 years now.
For us (Rory & Nancy the owners of Fired Up) our favourite pizza has to be the N’Duja. There is something very special about this pizza cooked in 90’s in our oven...
Dough - We use a classic Neapolitan recipe ’00’ Flour, yeast, water and table salt. We allow to prove over 24 hours for the springy moorish crust.
Our tomato sauce is made with San Marzano tomatoes, a pinch of salt and pepper is all you need.
N’Duja - What can we say about this, possible one of the finest ingredients ever made. A soft spreadable Salami from Calabrian. It has a smokey, spicy and highly addictive taste and melts into puddles of loveliness over the pizza.
To finish the pizza, we add basil leaves and Virgin Oil - simple but amazing!
