10 Best Ooni Recipes to Up Your Pizza Game
Great pizza always starts with great dough. The measurements for this Ooni dough are very specific which is helpful for beginners. You know that you’re going to come out with around 4 12″ Neopolitan style pizza bases (which are thin compared to other style of pizzas).
Depending on how many pizzas you want to make you may want to adapt the recipe to suit your needs. Overall you can’t really go wrong with this classic pizza dough.
It really helps to leave the dough to cold prove in the fridge for up to 7 days to develop flavour and texture, but you can still get great results using it on the same day.
No surprises here, you’re going to need a great pizza sauce to up your pizza game. This recipe is made with a few quality ingredients – San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt & pepper, olive oil and sugar.
If you don’t want a sweet tomato sauce leave out the sugar, or reduce it by half. Not all of us have a sweet tooth, but if you do leave it in.
Sourdough bread that has fermented for some time is delicious and healthy for your gut. It just makes perfect sense to apply this approach to your pizza base as well.
It definitely isn’t difficult to make your own sourdough starter (it just needs a few days, water and flour) but you need to be aware that it takes time. If you don’t want to be bothered with the hassle, you could buy a sourdough starter.
If you are lucky you might know a baker who will give you one free because they are making them all the time.
You’ll be surprised at how much more flavour your pizza dough will have because of the sourdough starter regardless.
There’s something unforgettable about deep pan pizza dishes done in the Chicago style. That classic crust is delicious but surprisingly airy and light.
You place your toppings directly on the dough, then add your cheese, and the pizza sauce goes on last.
This was made with classic pepperoni, but you can add whatever toppings you prefer.
Using a cast iron pan for this recipe is definitely the way to go.

This great BBQ chicken pizza comes from Ooni themselves, and it is easy to make not to mention delicious.
Once you have made your pizza dough and sauce, all you need is mozzarella, BBQ sauce, bacon, shredded chicken, sweet corn, red onion and a red bell pepper.
You may never need to order takeaway pizza again!
If you have never tried Detroit Style pizza then you are in for a treat.
Instead of cooking a circular pizza directly on the pizza stone of your Ooni Oven, this recipe involves cooking the pizza in a rectangular tray.
It takes a bit longer to cook, but it’s definitely worth it. The edges of the pizza crisp up and the cheese melts in a unique and delicious way.

7 Deep Dish Cheeseburger Pizza in the Ooni Oven
If you are gluten intolerant, or you have guests or family members that are then this gluten free Sicilian style Pizza is for you.
Using Caputo Gluten Free Flour and optional Parmesan cheese, this recipe is a fantastic gluten free alternative to pizza dough.
If you have Vegan mouths to feed this could be your go-to pizza recipe. It cleverly swaps out cheese for hummus, although you could try vegan cheese instead.
If you’re a meat eater who likes to cut down on the amount of meat you are eating then this will suit you too. The saltiness of the olives, mixed with the garlicky, tangy taste of hummus works really well for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
10 Hot Crab Dip Pizza
The saltiness of crabmeat combined with tangy, hot Tabasco Sauce, lemon, and fried shallots is really just a party for your tastebuds.
It’s also just a bit out of the ordinary (many people don’t think about seafood on pizza) and it genuinely just works.
You need to try this Ooni recipe out, at least once.

Healthy Ooni Recipes
While many people think of pizza as being unhealthy, if you’re using fresh ingredients from scratch and not adding sugar, as well as making a thin crust, pizza can be very healthy and nourishing.
People are often surprised that mozzarella cheese contains vitamins and minerals, such as Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Calcium, Potassium, and Zinc.
Tomatoes in a homemade pizza sauce (especially without added sugar) are healthy too. Tomatoes contain vitamin C, potassium and are naturally rich in antioxidants (which neutralise free radicals in your cells helping to reduce cancer risk).
Using a sourdough pizza base is good for your gut health also.
Consider the following healthy options to top your pizza:
- Lean meats for protein
- Rocket (arugula)
- Butternut Squash
- Extra tomatoes
- Omega 3 Rich fish e.g. mackerel & salmon
- Olive Oil
