Pomodoro Sauce

500ml Passata

1 onion, diced

5 cloves of garlic, minced

1 bunch of basil, torn

200ml white wine

Olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Arancini

2 cups Arborio rice

1 onion, diced

5 cloves of garlic, minced

200ml white wine

800ml Vegetable stock

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

2 tbsp butter

10 semi dried tomatoes

Half bunch basil, torn



Salt & Pepper

Vegetable oil



  • Dice onion and garlic, chop basil.
  • Prep your Ozpig and pan for medium fairly high heat.
  • Sauté onions and garlic, once softened deglaze with white wine.
  • Add passata and let your fire down down to medium heat. Cook out for around 30 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add chopped basil.


  • Prep your Ozpig for medium high heat.
  • Heat your stock in a saucepan.
  • Dice onion and garlic, chop basil, chop semi dried tomatoes. Dice the Mozzarella into small cubes.
  • Heat your pan and add oil, onions and garlic. Sauté until softened.
  • Add the rice and sauté until rice is becoming opaque, around 5 minutes.
  • Start adding hot stock a couple of ladles at a time, cook out the rice until the stock is almost all absorbed. Repeat the process around 5 or 6 times until your rice is almost cooked.
  • Add the the semi dried tomatoes and mix through. Add some butter and white wine, the fat and acid will emulsify slightly and thicken and sort of cream up the rice.
  • Grate some parmesan into the risotto and mix through. The parmesan will make your rice stickier. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer risotto onto a tray and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Ball up the risotto with a cube of Mozzarella in the centre then coat in bread crumbs. Allow to set for at least a few hours in the fridge, overnight is best. Otherwise the arancini will disintegrate when frying.
  • Heat your vegetable oil to around 180°C for deep frying.
  • Fry your arancini until golden brown and crispy then serve.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
