Delicious, simple, thin crispy based pizza with a topping of wilted radicchio, buffalo mozzarella and Tabasco® green pepper sauce with grated pecorino.


  1. Put flour, cornmeal. yeast and salt in a large bowl and mix together.

  2. Make a well in the centre of the mix. Stir the sugar into the warm water then add to the well in the centre of the dry mix. Work from the outer edge and mix all the dry ingredients into the water.

  3. When the mix has come together, turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. At this stage the dough should be soft and spring back when lightly touched.

  4. Flour the dough and cover with cling film. Leave to rest for about 15 minutes. If not baking immediately, leave the dough wrapped in lightly oiled cling film and place in fridge until ready to shape and bake.

  5. Roll out dough or spread with your hands until the 1-2cm thick. Place on a baking sheet. Prick the base roughly with a fork to stop any air bubbles forming when cooking.

  6. First spread bases with passata. Then place chopped fresh tomatoes over and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Next arrange radicchio leaves on top of this and place mozzarella slices over these. Liberally splash with Tabasco® green pepper sauce. Finish with a thick grating of pecorino cheese. Brush round edges of pizza with milk or egg wash.

  7. Place in a preheated oven 400°F (200°C, gas mark 6) for around 15 minutes - or until base is crisp and cheese is melting and bubbling. Scatter ripped basil over before serving.
