An amazing olive and caper-inspired pizza recipe!

On this pizza the humble olive provides a fresh, grassy seasoning that cuts through the rich melted cheese with ease. A couple of caper berries added to the top bring a mineral brightness to the classic tomato sauce. It’s a quintessentially Mediterranean flavour balanced by the charred crust and smokey aroma from a wood fired pizza oven.
