Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C.
  2. Line two baking trays with nonstick baking paper.
  3. Put the milk, butter and salt into a medium pan and heat gently until the milk just begins to bubble and the butter has melted. Remove from the heat and add the flour; beat with a wooden spoon until you have a smooth dough. Return to the heat and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring all the time. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes.
  4. When the dough is cool enough to handle, season with freshly ground pepper and add ¼ of the beaten egg mixture, stirring well with a spoon until fully incorporated. Stir in another ¼ of the egg mixture. Repeat until all the egg mixture is incorporated.
  5. Mix in the pizza cheese and half the Parmesan. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a round medium-sized nozzle. If you don’t have one, use a freezer bag and snip off the corner.
  6. Pipe 2½cm (1in) circles of dough onto the baking trays – ideally they should be around 2½cm (1in) tall. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
