Christmas Pizza

If you’re stuck for ideas for an informal festive supper, look no further.  Pizza, the ultimate comfort food, topped with all the flavours of the season – port, stilton, walnuts and rosemary.  Probably not the most authentic pizza recipe, but hey…. its Christmas!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 2 large or 4 medium-sized pizzas
  • 1 packet plain white bread mix
  • 2 red onions, sliced
  • Handful sultanas or raisins
  • 10g butter
  • 2 tbsp port
  • 250g grated mozerella
  • 6 tbsp passata
  • Handful walnut halves or pieces, roughly chopped
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 4 thick slices stilton cheese, broken into large-ish chunks
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  1. Make up the bread mix according to packet instructions, and leave to rise in a warm place.  Preheat your oven to 200ºC
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onions and sultanas, and turn down to a low heat.  Cook very gently for 20 minutes until collapsing and translucent.  Stir in the port, remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. When the dough has risen, divide it into 2 (or 4) equal pieces, roll each thinly on a floured surface and place on baking trays, (pizza trays with holes in the base are fantastic).  Divide the passata between each base and spread right to the edges.
  4. Top each pizza with mozerella, then scatter with the onions and sultanas, walnuts, stilton and rosemary.  Season with black pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  5. Cook the pizzas for 12-14 minutes until golden and bubbling.  Serve immediately.

  1. I love the idea of the toppings – what a wonderful combination.

    1. What is the balsamic vinegar and caster sugar for?!! (It’s mentioned in the recipe but not used). Is it for caramelising the onions? Sounds delicious though …
