We present to you, The Nea-Polites pizza recipe. Named after the SA property tycoon, whose blue-and-white signs pepper Adelaide’s urban landscape. Using delicious and fresh SA ingredients from Foodland stores, this pizza really deserves to have its name up in lights. And after trying a cut of this blue and white bad-boy, you’ll understand why it’s such hot property. So, no need to be polite…es, dig in.
We roped in Jessie Spiby (MasterChef 2015 contestant and cook behind Jessie Does Food) to help us craft the dream slices and teamed up with our friends at Foodland Thebarton and Eatilly, who kindly provided us with local ingredients and use of their in-store pizza oven.
1 Riveria Pizza Dough Base
4 La Casa Del Formaggio bocconcini balls
Beerenberg Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle
1 cup of pizza sauce
2 tablespoons chopped basil leaves, plus small leaves to garnish
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Preheat oven to 220°C.
Roll base to approximately 12 inches diameter.
Spread pizza sauce, followed by minced garlic. Follow with bocconcino, cherry tomatoes, grated parmesan and a splash of olive oil.
Bake for 8 to 12 minutes depending on desired crispiness, and serve.
This blue and all-white pizza will make you feel like a property tycoon. If you are as generous as the great man, feel free to share a slice or two. Try the Fritz Xenophon, Teresa Palmer-Giana, Mark Prosciutto or the Prawn Micallef. Knock them back with an Adelaide Metropolitan if you want to go the full South Aussie shebang.
