Hot Salami, Spinach and Onion Pizza

Today’s pizza is a fusion of spicy hot salami, spinach, and brown onion.

Fresh spinach offers a lovely contrast to the spicy, savoury notes of the fiery salami. The brown onion contributes a hint of subtle sweetness and a crisp texture, perfectly balancing the rich and spicy flavours of the other ingredients. A sprinkle of oregano not only infuses the pizza with a peppery punch and earthy aroma but also elevates its visual appeal.

The combination of hot salami, fresh spinach, and onion, paired with a blend of low-moisture and fresh mozzarella and grana padano, creates a flavour profile that is savoury, spicy, creamy, and refreshing – all the delightful notes you’re seeking in a gourmet pizza.

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
  • Low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Grana padano cheese
  • Hot salami
  • Spinach leaves
  • 1 Brown onion
  • Dried oregano


  • 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 low moisture mozzarella cheeses into medium-sized pieces. Finely grate grana padano. Set aside.
  • Prepare Onion & Spinach: Slice the brown onion into thin to medium slices, and finely chop a handful of fresh spinach leaves. Set both 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: Start by spreading a ladle of sauce in a circular motion from the center outward. Distribute mozzarella pieces, ensuring they’re evenly spaced. The cheese pieces should be around 2 cm in diameter and at least 1.5 cms apart. Sprinkle grana padano, dried oregano, add salami slices, chopped spinach and brown onion.
  • 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 done, remove the pizza from the oven and place it on a serving board. Now it's time to enjoy your hot, spicy and delicious homemade salami, spinach and onion pizza!
