A second topping post following on from last weekend’s firing, this one slightly more traditional, a margherita with spicy nduja sausage or as I prefer to call it, the Isle of Wight Ninja. I picked up some stunning Isle of Wight tomatoes from the market, crushed over the dough these were better than any tinned tomatoes I could have used. For a bit of spice I added some nduja, the spicy Calabrian pork sausage and favourite of the Pizza Pilgrims

keeping it simple, the oregano’s not pictured here as that went straight from the plant to the pizza


Our favourite sourdough base

Isle of Wight toms


Fresh Oregano


not a bad looking set of ingredients

Extra prep?

None again, I wouldn’t add any extra oil, plenty comes out of the nduja


What I’d do differently

Not much, I’d possible add a chopped chilli for a bit more kick but given every batch of nduja seems to have a different level of spice this is one to adjust to taste
