    Step 3

    When the dough bases are ready put 1 into the frying pan, still on the heat, and then, avoiding the crust, drizzle approximately ¼ of the yolk in a spiral around the middle of the pizza base, then add 3 basil leaves, 90g of mozzarella, 25g of the scamorza and 3 of the half slices of pancetta. Then place a nice swirl of olive oil on top. You don’t want to hang around when doing this.

    Step 4

    Once the base has browned in approx 1-2 minutes (you will need to lift the side of the pizza up to see underneath with a spatula) take the frying pan off the heat and put it on the highest shelf under the grill.

    Step 5

    Once the crust is browned a little (approx 1-2 minutes again) take it out and put it straight on a plate or a board, then sprinkle 1 tbsp parmesan, a good grind of black pepper and a few of the other basil leaves.
