Real wood-fired pizza at home, without the work or the delivery charges

The ingredients used by Dublin Pizza Company are impeccably well sourced

What is it?

Dublin Pizza Company Wood Fired Pizza (€10/550g).

What’s good about it?

These at-home pizzas offer the authentic flavour and texture of wood-fired pizza, at home, without the work or the delivery charges. The ingredients used are impeccably well sourced – Toons Bridge Dairy Fior Di Latte and Coolea Farmhouse Cheese, San Marzano tomatoes and Napoli salami – in the case of the one that I tried, called the DPC. The Margherita and Lucifero pizzas are made with similarly high-quality ingredients.

Tell me more about it?

Dublin Pizza Company prides itself on its “three-day dough”, a long slow fermentation process that makes a very tasty base that some people find is easier on the digestion too. The crust has the characteristic “leopard” spotting only attainable at very high temperatures.

How do I use it?

The instructions are to preheat an oven to 220 degrees (gas 7), place the pizza directly on the centre rack and bake for six to eight minutes. I gave mine a little more time and was happy with the result – a crisp crust and well-sizzled toppings. The pizzas must be stored in a fridge before cooking, and can be frozen on day of purchase.
