Blue Cheese Margherita Pizza

At My Husband Makes Pies, we really enjoy integrating classic toppings with unique flavours. Today, we’re giving a twist to the traditional margherita pizza by featuring blue cheese as the star ingredient.

Blue cheese, renowned for its sharp aroma, can elevate any dish. Its rich and creamy texture fuses beautifully with the smooth creaminess of fresh mozzarella. For this margherita pizza variant, we’ve opted for spinach as the green component, replacing the customary basil. Spinach imparts a subtle, neutral freshness, balancing out the robust flavours of blue cheese. fa

The harmonious blend of blue cheese, mozzarella, and spinach, complemented by the mild saltiness of pecorino and the aroma of oregano, results in a complex yet balanced flavour profile, ideal for those seeking a rich and satisfying meal.

Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 sauce ladle
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • 1 ladle of pizza sauce
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Blue cheese
  • Pecorino cheese
  • Dried oregano
  • Fresh spinach leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Sauce: We recommend our standard pizza sauce which is versatile, simple to make and is perfect for Neapolitan style pizzas. Spice up this sauce however you like, remember the best part about making pizza is the creative process!
  • Prepare Cheese: Place your fresh mozzarella in a container or bowl with a paper towel at the bottom to allow some of the water to drain. Tear both the fresh mozzarella and blue cheese into medium-sized pieces. Finely grate the pecorino cheese. Set aside.
  • Prepare Spinach: Finely chop a handful of fresh spinach leaves and set aside.
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: To assemble the pizza, start by spreading a ladle of sauce in a circular motion, starting from the center of the dough and working your way outwards. Next, evenly distribute chunks of mozzarella and blue cheese over the dough, and generously sprinkle a handful or two of pecorino cheese. Follow up with an even distribution of spinach leaves. Finish with a sprinkle of oregano and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Serving: Once the pizza is ready, take your blue cheese margherita pizza out of the oven and transfer it to a serving board and enjoy!
