Pie & Pea Inspired Pizza (Neapolitan Style)

Prep time: 10mins - Cook time: 15 mins (60-90 secs for the pizza) - Serves 2

I came up with this combination a few years ago at Bonfire Night when I wanted to try and take the elements of pie and peas and put an Italian twist on it. What resulted was the Peanist, featuring Italian sausage, fennel seeds, and a pea and mint Gremolata. It’s become so popular, it’s often on the menu through the entire year. This is a Bianca pizza, meaning it has no sauce.

This gremolata makes enough for 4 pizzas, and can be kept in the fridge for a few days, it also works well as a stir into pasta.


2 Pork Italia Sausages

1 tsp Fennel Seeds 

260g Neapolitan Dough ball 

Pea and Mint Gremolata:

90g frozen Petis Pois

4 peeled cloves of Garlic

20g Extra Virgin Olive Oil

One handful chopped Parsley

One handful Mint Leaves

1tsp Salt

A pinch of Pepper.



  • In a bowl, add the fennel seeds, and pork italia, knead together until the seeds are combined, at this point add to a hot frying pan and break up with a spoon, fry the mince.
  • Allow to cool
  • Preheat your pizza oven to 450c
  • Take one 260g Neapolitan dough ball and stretch to around 11”
  • Top with a handful of Fior di latte mozzarella, a good pinch of gran forma and a handful of precooked sausage, cook for 60-90 seconds at 450c, turning regularly.
  • After the cook, drizzle the pea and mint Gremolata generously over the pizza, slice and serve!
