Haggis, Potato & Cheddar Pizza
Scotland’s national dish is haggis, a mixture of minced lamb, beef, offal (organ meats), oatmeal and spices. Ooni is based in Scotland – our HQ is just outside Edinburgh – so of course our favorite way to enjoy this traditional ingredient is loaded up on a Neapolitan-style pizza!
8.8/11.6oz (250/330g) classic pizza dough
5 tbsp Classic Pizza Sauce (see note below)
3.5oz (100g) haggis
1 baby potato, peeled & thinly sliced
1.4oz (40g) cheddar cheese, grated
Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. Our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.
Once your dough is ready, prepare the pizza toppings. In a bowl, soak the potato slices in lightly salted water. This will remove the starch and help them to crisp up nicely in your pizza oven.
Fire up your Ooni pizza oven. Aim for 950˚F (500˚C) on the stone baking board inside. You can check the temperature inside your oven quickly and easily using the Ooni Infrared Thermometer.
Drizzle some olive oil into two separate Sizzler Pans and place into your Ooni to preheat. Once warm, remove and place the haggis and potatoes into the separate pans. Cook for 2-3 minutes inside your Ooni.
Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni Pizza Peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out to 12”/16” and lay it out on your pizza peel. Top with the pizza sauce, haggis, potato, and cheddar cheese.
Slide the pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven, making sure to rotate the pizza regularly.
Once cooked, remove the pizza from the oven and finish with a drizzle of olive oil – pour yourself a nip of Scotch whisky to enjoy your meal in true Scottish fashion!
