I brought out the Roccbox Pizza Oven this week and couldn’t wait to make a meatball pizza.
I've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!
Plus I made another pizza after this using the wood-burner and the great news is that Gozney have just announced that they’ve launched a new Wood Burner v.2.0 for the Roccbox and I can’t wait to try it out!
Back to this pizza and I made the meatballs by hand. I bought some local burgers from a butcher and split the burger up into small pieces, rolled them into small meatballs and fried them.
I then cooked the sliced onions in the juice from the meatballs. So nice!
Check out the video below which shows the Gozney Roccbox gas-fired pizza oven cooking this tasty meatball pizza!
This was so fun to cook - the meatballs kept rolling around the pizza during the launch and then once cooked, rolled off the pizza! I could’ve cut the meatball’s flat on one side so they wouldn’t roll but hey - that’s not a ball then is it?!
It was also so tasty and the Roccbox gave the crust and base a lovely crispy flavour.
The pizza dough was made with the following ingredients:
- 500g soft-grain 00 milled flour
- 310g water
- 9g salt
- 1g yeast
I used a bread maker to knead the dough using the pizza dough option, then bulk-proofed it in a large plastic box in a room for 24 hours, then placed that same box in the fridge for 24 hours. The dough balls are then returned back to room temperature by placing in a warm room for a couple of hours. I ball up the pizza about 30 minutes before the cook.
