Double Coppa Pinsa

Index

Coppa has to be in our top three cured meats for pizza and pinsa, and using it two ways on this ultra-Italian recipe gives a wonderfully deep flavour profile and mix of textures. 

Take your time to build height on the pinsa, by rolling each slice of meat into a cone – the 3-dimensional look will really wow your diners!
