Easy cooking your Pizza Punks at home
🔥 Fire up that Pizza Punks Christmas Playlist from the link on your box.
Next up is the hardest bit, wrangling with a lively pizza base, stretching it out but keeping it a bit thicker at the edges for a crust.
Spread the Pizza Punks San Marzano tomato, garlic, and basil sauce leaving a gap between the edge for the crust.
Liberally add your toppings – we used the cheese for both our pizzas on a single go as we’re cheese addicts, so make sure you have some spare cheddar and mozzarella if you plan to do that. Then, place your masterpiece onto a suitable baking tray, we actually one that looks like a net and is designed for pizzas, but it seems that the cats have hidden it, so we used one with circular holes instead, which is actually for making crispy chips but it still did the job. Actually, it may help to put the pizza onto the baking tray once it’s stretched out to prevent any mishaps from transferring it!
Keep an 👀 on the pizza, it doesn’t take long in a hot oven and you want to burn it a little for an authentic taste but not too much.
Voila, our final product was not too shabby. Pizza and cocktails with tune for dinner! 🍕 🍸 😍
Fred came out to judge our pizza making abilities (I think because he’d stolen the pizza oven tray), either that or the smell of the pizza, or cocktails was just far too tempting.
For your benefit, there is no Fred in the kit to judge you!
We had fun making our pizzas with the lively dough, which was very tasty and the kits arrived well-packed with all the toppings we wanted but at £29 it is perhaps steep considering you can order ready-cooked punked-up pizzas for £12 each but the kit should appeal to anyone living too far from Pizza Punks for delivery (like us). Our cocktail was boozy with lots of rum and lime though we couldn’t taste the Buckfast (maybe a good thing sez Fred, meow!) so factoring in how much you would normally pay for a cocktail in a restaurant it’s maybe an OK price after all, and delivery is UK-wide.
Pizza Punks also sell a Punk it up DoughIY kit, which is basically the Xmas kit without the cocktail and playlist, and a Bake at home kit (pizzas are ready to go straight into the oven). Both of these are £16 for 2 pizzas with 4 toppings.
