Makes 1x 12”/16” pizza
8.8/11.6oz (250/330g) classic pizza dough
2 small baby potatoes, thinly sliced

5 tbsp balsamic vinegar

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.
Place a saucepan on a stovetop (hob) over medium heat, and add a little olive oil and the onion. Sweat the onions until soft, then add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, or until the vinegar has reduced and the onions have caramelized.
Fire up your Ooni pizza oven. Aim for 932˚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.
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 mozzarella, potato rounds, blue cheese and balsamic red onions.
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. Finish with the thyme and a drizzle of olive oil, and serve straight away.
