South Australian Pizza Recipe: The Prawn Micallef

Introducing The Prawn Micallef pizza recipe, a cheesy homage to true-blue South Aussie legend Shaun Micallef. Made using South Australian ingredients found at your local Foodland, the Prawn Micallef is a Full Frontal  force of flavour.

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 Riviera Bakery pizza dough
1/4 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup grated La Casa Del Formaggio’s Mozzarella

1/3 cup (70g) Spring Gully roasted red capsicum

Preheat oven to 220°C.

In a fry pan, cook prawns with half a teaspoon of butter, garlic, and some parsley, for approximately two minutes on each side.

Roll base to approximately 12 inches diameter. Spread pizza sauce on base, followed by a handful of cheese and then lay prawns and capsicum on top.

Sprinkle with dried chili and garnish with fresh basil leaves.

Cook in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on desired crispiness. Slice pizza and serve.
