    Pizza..

    So we got to talking about Pizza today in the office and how awesome they are. I went on to say how I tend order quite often from Dominos or Pizza hut. Got to talking about how much they cost and such, mine tend to end up around the £17-£19 mark. Out of interest I checked back over the year at just how much I'd spent on Pizza. Shockingly it came back at over £800.. I knew I probably ordered too many, but didn't think it was that bad!

    Anyone else addicted?!

    I'm intolerant to wheat (found recently) which sucks because I love pizza. So sometimes I just go for it and ride out the consequences.

    I do the PizzaExpress club, £45/pa and you get a free pizza and drink voucher every 3 months, £10 for your birthday, £10 every time you get 10 stamps in a card and £10 4 times a year when you fill in an online survey. Works out as very worthwhile.

    Our local Dominos produce pretty good pizza. We always take advantage of the vouchers they stuff through the door occasionally, plus we get a discount as the better half works for the NHS. If you don't ask you don't get!

    Don't think we spend anywhere near £800 a year though! That's a hell of a lot of pizza!

    Sadly, I live to far away from a Domino's!

    When I lived in Ilford, I had one at the bottom of the street.....Recipe for disaster! On my days off (I was single at the time) I could be sat at my PC, order a pizza with a side, and 25 mins later, they'd be knocking at my door! I used to do that once a week, and it was pizza heaven!

    Ordering online meant that the side order was usually free too!

    I get em from our local pizza/fish n chips/kebab place, far cheaper than the big chains and far nicer imo. They even combine their kebab/fish n chips sides with the pizza side, so you can get a donner meat pizza or a fish n chips pizza ... or depending on your tastes...

    Try this, but with Spelt flour. I made a few for a do my mum was having, the only person in the room who noticed the difference was a retired baker.

    Pizza dough recipe | Pizza recipes & pizza toppings | Jamie Oliver recipe

    You might need to let the dough rise for a bit longer. Unless you're really hungry I'd halve the quantities in the recipe, I get 4 pizza out of each half batch.

    Baking your own is much better then takeaway.

    But the attraction of a takeaway is make a 1 minute phone call, do nothing, 30 mins later chow down!

    Agree totally, as is the case for nearly every other foodstuff...........

    However, who really wants to bake after copious amounts of red wine???? LOL!!!

    Make your own!!! I must say since we started to make our own, we haven't ordered a single pizza. Ok I dont make the dough as I cant really, but my better half can so she makes the base and we stick whatever we fancy on it. It got a bit stupid with toppings when we couldn't actually eat it properly due to overload, but we've scaled it back now.

    But making your own is quick and easy and you get a pizza full of all the toppings you like

    Pizza is awesome, isn't it? I sometimes order from Domino's, quite often go and dine in at Pizza Hut (I worked in the one I eat in for about 3 years) but mostly I order from a place not too far from me that do a 'small' pizza (10") with fries, awesome garlic bread (a baguette sliced lengthways and covered in garlic butter, best garlic bread I've had from anywhere) and a can of pop for £8.50, far too tempting!

    If anyone is interested, the place is called Pizza Donnini, it's in Bilston but they deliver quite a few miles out, if they deliver to you (they're on Just-Eat) then I highly recommend them, fantastic place!

    We've got a bread maker that makes amazing pizza dough. Still prefer Dominos though

    We had tea at Pizza Express on the Euston Road last night. Shaun and Tony had pizza and I had pasta. As soon as theirs arrived I had food envy
