Pizza Bismarck (Breakfast Pizza)

Nothing says comfort like a pizza, even a simple Margherita. But the satisfaction can run much deeper when your pizza is made with fresh, handmade bases and quality toppings.

We recently had to create a pizza exclusively for Irish Country Magazine readers. A lot of recipe ideas came and went, but the idea of a cracked egg on top of our pizza bases stuck with us. We knew we wanted to create a really tasty pizza, so began thinking about flavours and textures. This is our take on a Pizza Bismarck. Perfect for a lazy Saturday/Sunday brunch with a nice glass of Prosecco!

Ham, Mushroom & Grilled Peppers

Happy weekend everyone! Summer has arrived so we’re firing up the BBQ and grilling lots of lovely vegetables.

Grilled Peppers have a rich and sweet taste, enough to give any pizza some va-va-voom. Add some Mixed Wild Mushrooms grilled with garlic for a lovely earthy flavour when combined with Ham will guarantee a delicious, comforting pizza that will have you making this pizza again and again.

Remember, as our pizzas only take between 3-5 minutes to cook in the oven, all vegetables should be pre cooked.

Black Pudding, Goats Cheese & Onion Marmalade Pizza


Ireland is bursting with artisan food producers. There’s so many people with a passion for food. It gives us great ingredients and we just love coming up with new and exciting pizza recipes.

Pizza bianco is a pizza made with no tomato sauce base. While sometimes it can be defined by what it lacks, it is the toppings on these pizzas that can really take centre stage…

I’ve used an Onion Marmalade as the base for this pizza. Teamed with some crumbled Black Pudding, Goats Cheese and a drizzle of Honey this pizza is busting with some of the finest flavours Irish food has to offer!

It’s quick and easy to make too. Perfect for those evenings when you really fancy something delicious but don’t have time. You could even pre cook the black pudding the day before and leave it in the fridge until you’re ready.
