Buffalo Chicken Margherita Pizza Base

Buffalo Chicken Pizza - Pair it with...an Indian Pale Ale

Our Buffalo Chicken recipe is a simple and super easy addition to your menu that can be easily made or customised with ingredients already at your disposal. We've added spring onions for that extra crunch but capsicum, diced tomato, or some ranch on the side would work great with this recipe. Pair it with an IPA to complement the kick from the buffalo sauce. 

What you need:
    What you do:

    Mix the chicken and buffalo sauce in a bowl, then layer over the pizza base and bake, turning 180 degrees halfway through cooking. Finish with a scattering of spring onion, and serve! 

     

    Il Uno Artisan Pepperoni Pizza

    Pepperoni Pizza - Pair it with...a Brown Ale

    This old classic pairs beautifully with a brown ale. The malty, slightly sweet flavours of the ale perfectly complement the saltiness of the pepperoni. 

    What you need:
      What you do:

      Top your pizza with the pepperoni and bake, turning 180 degrees halfway through cooking to get an even cook. Remove from the oven and lightly scatter with dried or fresh basil. 

       

      Il Uno Artisan Mushroom Blue Cheese Pizza

      Mushroom, Spinach & Blue Cheese Pizza - Pair it with...Stout

      A rich, full-flavoured stout pairs perfectly with this mushroom, spinach, and blue cheese pizza, bringing out the earthy flavour combinations of the toppings.  

      What you need:
        What you do:

        Top your pizza with the blue cheese and mushroom, then bake. Halfway through cooking, turn your pizza 180 degrees and add the spinach (this will prevent it from burning and will give it enough time to steam and melt into the toppings). Carefully remove from the oven and serve. 

         

        Il Uno Artisan Margherita Pizza

        Margherita Pizza - Pair it with...Pale Ale

        A pale ale is the ideal palette cleanser in between slices. The light malts won't overpower the flavours, allowing the cheese to take centre stage and balancing the acidity of the tomato.  

        What you need:
          What you do:

          Bake your pizza, turning 180 degrees halfway through cooking. Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh or dried basil.
