Cooking with Quicke's | Spring Nettle Pizza

Emma ShermanApril 21, 2022

We’ve teamed up with Quicke’s, for their guidance on the perfect spring pizza.

Get foraging for wild garlic and nettle, to craft authentic, seasonal cooking.




4 x sourdough pizza balls 

60ml double cream 

Small bunch of wild garlic 

Extra virgin olive oil

45g Quicke’s Lady Prue cheese, thin slivers 

80g of nettle leaves - stalks removed *

*Chef’s tip - use gloves, nettles sting!




  • Gently mix the cream and wild garlic and nettles in a saucepan until softened.


  • Take the dough balls out from the freezer and defrost overnight (at least 12hours) in a refrigerator. Make sure they’re covered with a clean cloth or cling wrap to prevent drying out.  


  • Remove 2 hours prior to use and bring up to room temperature (about 20°C.), they’ll around double in size.  


  • On a floured surface, either hand stretch or roll out using a rolling pin to your required size.  


  • Place in a pre-oiled pizza pan and spread the nettle mixture onto the base of the stretch pizza along with slivers of the cheese and a handful of fresh nettles evenly across the base and bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until crisp. 


  • Remove from oven and sprinkle finely grated Lady Prue and serve.
