Jamie's secret ingredient is red grapes

However, other fans weren't as convinced, with one half-joking: "You're killing a lot of Italians." "Grapes? On a pizza??" wrote one follower, accompanying it with a face palm emoji.

"I'm going to give it a go this week, I'm a bit dubious about the grapes," another posted, while other comments included, "I'd go figs before grapes..." and "Grapes? In winter?? Something in season would be better... sustainable choices."

The celebrity chef shared this photo of his family ahead of his TV show airing

Jamie's sausage recipe featured on his TV show Keep Cooking Family Favourites and can also be found in his new book, 7 Ways. Ahead of the programme airing, the doting father-of-five shared a gorgeous photo with his wife Jools, his son Buddy and his youngest child River, four.

"30 minutes to go lovely people 'til me and the family are back cooking up and sharing with you some of our family favourites in #KeepCookingFamilyFavourites on @channel4 8.30pm!!" he warned his Instagram followers on Monday night.

At one point during the episode, Buddy can be seen going outside to the family's garden and telling mum Jools: "Mum, the pizza looks so good."
