I'm back with pizza

I missed you guys!

So sorry I've been away but I've been completely under the weather the last few weeks. But yummy soup and lots of TLC and I'm back!

So school has restarted and is in full swing. Many of our clients are part of busy families so, I thought it would be great to feature easy meals for lunches or quick suppers.

Today is pizza!

People seem to think that homemade pizza is super time consuming and should only be a weekend meal but that is not at all true. Some people even think of it it as junk food... gasp! It certainly does not have to be.

So here are some tips on how to make yummy healthy homemade pizza in a whizz!

Make it healthy
- Use lots of veggies, get your little ones to help you dice them up
- Try new things like fresh mozzarella cheese and mushrooms
- Choose leaner protein like chicken breast chunks instead of pepperoni

Make it quick
- Pre-make your dough and freeze it so that it takes no time at all
- OR buy a pre-made dough, lots of supermarkets carry them now
- Use a pre-made sauce and ready shredded cheese

Our dough recipe is enough to make 2 pizzas so you can make double and cut the next one up for lunch boxes the next day!

Dough recipe:
3 cups flour
11/2 pks of instant yeast
2 tbsp oil
1 cup water (warm)
pinch of salt

Mix yeast and warm water in a bowl until yeast is dissolved, add flour, oil and salt and mix until a dough is formed. Place in a greased bowl in a warm place to rise for 15-30 mins. (Roll out and par-bake for 10 mins at 350 F if using later) This dough freezes very well and keeps up to a month.  I also par-bake if I'm making it right away but its not necessary.

I hope all our little tips inspire you to make a homemade pizza =)

Have a great week.

Dining In Tonight

Hey guys!

So its been a slight minute. We had a whole bunch of weddings and events so there is so much to share! 

What I'll share today is one of the services we offer which has been booming recently; it's our "dining in" option. 

Couples are choosing our 3 course meals delivered to their home or getaway location. I think this is a super idea. Its more intimate than a restaurant, you can pick and choose your menu, and it is totally exclusive. We also offer a wine paring and table set up.

Here are some photos of what we offer:

I'll be sure to fill you in, also there are 2 more summer favs to come. Better late than never =)

Have a great week guys!
