Sour Dough Deli Dough Pizza Ortolana


1 ball of Sour dough DeliDough
2-3 tbsp tomato pizza sauce
2 handfuls grated mozzarella
5-6 artichoke heart quarters (from a jar)
7-8 cherry tomatoes, halved
4-5 green olives, pitted and halved
1/2 ball fresh Buffalo mozzarella, torn into rough chunks
1/2 tbsp fresh pesto


  1. Preheat the oven 250ºC.
  2. For best results hand stretch (rather than roll out) the Sour Dough Deli Dough into a 12” pizza round. (See our videos for top tips and hand stretching instructions!) Pre heat a heavy baking tray or pizza stone, then flour and lay pizza base out. Cook for 3 minutes until the dough is just starting to rise.
  3. Bring the pizza base out of the oven, spread the tomato sauce over the base and sprinkle over with the grated mozzarella.
  4. Top with the artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, olives and the remaining grated mozzarella.
  5. Place the Pizza into the oven without the baking tray, placing the pizza directly onto the oven shelf allowing the base to cook thoroughly and for crispier crusts.
  6. Cook for 8 minutes.
  7. Serve with torn fresh Buffalo mozzarella and a drizzle of fresh pesto.
