200g Fresh Mozzarella Slices
1 tbsp Grated Parmesan Tub
1 bunch broccoli rabe, chicory, silverbeet, trimmed and washed
4 x garlic cloves, thinly sliced
6 tbsp olive oil
200g flat pancetta, roughly sliced
2 x small red chillies, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
Pizza Dough (makes 6)
620g warm water
1kg 00 flour, high protein (>12g per 100g) + extra for stretching
7g dry yeast
10g salt
olive oil spray


1 To make the pizza dough, place water into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Sprinkle over the yeast and a third of the flour and mix to combine. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
2 Add remaining flour and salt and mix to combine over low speed. Increase speed to medium and knead for ten minutes. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with cling film and set aside to prove for one hour.
3 Turn out the dough onto a floured bench and divide into six equal portions. Form into balls and place into 1L capacity containers sprayed with olive oil. Seal well and place into the refrigerator overnight.
4 Once refrigerated overnight, remove the dough balls 2 hours before cooking the pizzas.
5 Preheat pizza oven or preheat domestic oven to its maximum temperature with a pizza stone placed on the bottom rack.
6 Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the greens and cook until tender. Drain the greens well. Return the pot to the stove over medium heat, add olive oil and garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the greens, stir well to combine and season with salt and pepper.
7 Place a handful of flour into a shallow bowl. Gently turn out dough ball into the flour and turn over to coat in the flour.
8 Transfer the dough onto the kitchen bench and gently press the dough in the centre to form a flat, round disc.
9 Pick up the dough, allowing gravity to stretch the dough, turning to stretch it out evenly, ensuring the edges remain airy and a little thicker. Continue to stretch until a 30cm disc is formed.
10 Top with greens, parmesan and pancetta. Evenly distribute the mozzarella slices.
11 Place onto a pizza paddle and transfer to the oven. If using a pizza oven, the pizza will cook within 90-120 seconds, rotating the pizza frequently to ensure even cooking. Allow 8-10 minutes cooking time for a domestic oven.
12 Drizzle with olive oil and scatter over the chilli slices.
