Pizza…a la Playa Viva

When you can’t come to us, let our flavourful, homemade recipes help you to host a simple, naturally-based ‘pizza night’ in the sanctuary of your own home.

And in true Playa Viva style, we’ve made ingredients and instructions deliberately vague – leaving you free to follow your instincts, and put your own unique spin on things…

In or out of the kitchen, ‘como tu quieres’ (as you like it) is what really counts after all!

Ingredients: 1.5kg flour, 2 eggs, raising agent, salt, muscovado sugar (pinch), water

4. Prepping the Pizza Stage

Instructions: roll your pizza dough (shape, size and thickness up to you!), lay out your toppings and sauces, have your favourite cheese for sprinkling at the ready, and start stoking that fire…

5. Get Cooking!

Instructions: while you may not have the luxury of a bespoke, wood-burning pizza oven at home, simply follow your gut and you can’t go wrong!

Tip: Don’t be shy when it comes to adding toppings, and remember to keep a close eye on your unique creations while they’re cooking…

And remember – if  cooking just ain’t your thing, or your pizzas simply won’t play ball – there’s always the real deal to escape to; Playa Viva’s very own ‘Pizza Night’ can be enjoyed up close and personal, every Sunday.
