Beer Pizza

Beer Pizza

This beer pizza recipe is from Fabulous Baker Brothers: Bite of Britain. A Brewer’s Garden pizza, this little beauty was made in the episode filmed around Bakewell.

The beer they used was Thornbridge Jaipur IPA, any good pale ale will be fine though.

In the programme Henry gets carried away topping the pizza with the finest garden produce; honey, nasturtium leaves and flowers, borage flowers and fennel fronds. You could top your beer pizza recipe with these when it comes out of the oven.

If this beer pizza recipe looks a bit fancy for you try Tom’s quick pizza recipe.

We make a lot of pizzas in our Chadwick Oven. This beer pizza is a perfect summer pizza so would be great baked on the barbecue, we also love our Weber BBQ pizza oven.

You can of course just buy our baking stone, which raises the heat of your bakes and will bake great crisp pizza.
