Il Formaggio Pizza Box
Il Formaggio Pizza Box
Our Pizza Boxes contain all the dough and toppings you need to make perfect Italian pizzas on your EGG. Il Formaggio (The Cheese) combines three Italian cheeses: mild, fior di latte (low-moisture mozzarella), gently smoked scamorza, and rich, tangy gorgonzola. To cut through all that cheese, top your pizza with beautiful, teardrop-shaped Peruvian chilli peppers, offering a burst of sweetness and gentle warmth.
Choose your box by which dough you prefer: classic, sourdough or a gluten-free option. Each box contains 20 dough balls, plus enough toppings to cover them, depending on how liberally you like to load your pizza. Any leftover dough balls can be kept in the freezer for up to three months. The mozzarella and scamorza can also be frozen, while the tomato sauce has a shelf life of at least a year.
Please note, the Gluten Free Pizza Box contains 5 gluten-free and 15 classic dough balls.
Pizza boxes are dispatched and sent separately from other Big Green Egg orders. For delivery time frames please see below.

Our dough balls are made in Yorkshire by the small team of pizza obsessives at Great Balls of Flour. The classic and sourdough balls are made from just flour, water, salt, a touch of malt and either a little baker’s yeast or a sourdough mother called Bubbles, lovingly nurtured since 2017. Each batch is proved for a full 48 hours before being frozen. The gluten-free balls are based on a blend of gluten-free flours carefully formulated to mirror the textures and flavours of wheat-based dough.
Long and slow, fresh and frozen
The dough balls can be kept in the fridge for three days or frozen for up to three months without losing any of their magical qualities. Each batch has undergone a long, slow fermentation, resulting in a slightly nutty, roasted flavour, a crisp but chewy base and a beautifully airy crust. All you need to do before pressing them out is give them a few hours to reach room temperature and enjoy one last surge of proving.
The ingredients in our boxes have been sourced in a way that offers quality and authenticity. The meats and the cheeses are imported from small regional producers around Italy. For the dough, Great Balls of Flour works closely with a local farmer in Yorkshire to source a fine flour that contains the perfect percentage of wheat protein to make exceptional pizza. The tomato sauce is made in England using only the best Italian tomatoes and a touch of salt.
Yes, you can freeze the dough balls, and fior di latte mozzarella on arrival. The tomato sauce has a shelf life of at least one year.
Your Pizza Box will be delivered by Great Balls of Flour. When ordered in conjunction with other products this item will be processed for shipment on the next working dispatch date and may be delivered separately and ahead of any pre ordered items. If you’d like to use your ingredients with a new EGG, we recommend you wait until you receive your EGG before placing an order. We will not be offering a time specific delivery. As grocery items are temperature sensitive, *please ensure someone is in to receive your order or it will be left in a safe place. *
It's much easier to handle when frozen as it does not stick to the bag it is portioned in. Remove from the bag and defrost according to instructions.
