In Italy, pizza backen is a tradition that’s as old as the history of the cuisine itself. Traditionally, it was made by cooking a large pizza on an open fire and then topping the cooked pizza with a variety of different ingredients.
The first recipe for pizza backen in the world was written by Marcus Porcius Cato in the 3rd century, but it wasn’t until the 16th century that it became a staple of the Italian diet. Amongst the ingredients that were added to the sauce were knuckles, fennel, olives and basil.
While the origin of pizza backen is debated, there is no doubt that it’s a popular and tasty meal. It has become a common dietary staple in many parts of the world and has even been cited as a cultural identifier of a nation, particularly in Italy.
Unlike other types of pizza, pizza backen is not baked in a traditional oven, but instead uses a specially designed wooden kiln called a “pizza oven”. The kiln is hot enough to ensure that the dough cooks and the cheese melts.
The resulting pizza is light and crispy, with a deliciously flavourful base that’s topped with a range of different toppings including olives, basil, pepperoni and mozzarella. The whole process takes about two hours.
