Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. Our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.
In a bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Set aside at room temp.
Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni pizza peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out and lay it out on your pizza peel. With a metal spoon, spread an even layer of garlic butter across the base. Top with mozzarella, courgette ribbons, and sliced spring onion.
Slide the pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven. Cook for 1-2 minutes, making sure to turn the pizza regularly to ensure an even cook.
Once cooked, remove the pizza and top with fresh lemon zest, smoked salt, and chilli flakes. Serve and enjoy immediately!
