Pizzas are a student staple. And what better day to eat them than on National Pizza Day – February 9th if you were wondering! If you’re studying hard, pizzas are quick to put in the oven for dinner. They’re a great late-night snack, and you can even eat them cold for breakfast in the morning. At IconInc, you have the luxury of having your own kitchen, or even a Mega Kitchen, where you can enjoy a home-made pizza. So, get together with your friends, get the ingredients in and get ready to make some epic pizzas.

The Dough

For a great pizza, you need a great dough. You can buy pre-made pizza bases, pre-made dough, or you can make your own. If you want to do pizza making the traditional way, Jamie Oliver has a great recipe which is quick and easy to make and you’ll have your very own hand-made pizza base in no time.

A Tasty Margherita Pizza


On a large pizza base, you’ll need the following…

100ml passata

Fresh chopped basil

1 crushed garlic clove

150g fresh mozzarella

5 halved cherry tomatoes

Half tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon of parmesan


Pre-heat over to 200°c

Spread the passata thinly over the whole pizza base.

Place ingredients evenly onto pizza base.

Drizzle with olive oil.

Place onto a pizza tray and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until pizza is bubbling and golden brown.

The Meat Feast

This one is a free for all. Grab any and all of your favourite meats, and in a little pepper, drizzle on a little olive oil, and you’ve got yourself a good meat feast.

If you like things on the spicier side, chop up some jalapeños and sprinkle on top of the meat before cooking at 200°c.

If you like a sweeter taste to your meat feast, caramelise some onions and layer with the meat before putting into the oven.
