Pandemic pizza

Article in local paper 

With school and university being closed, my sister Amber and I conceived a project to make Neapolitan pizzas for NHS staff and vulnerable adults, and give them away for FREE.

Front-line staff are keeping us alive. Homeless shelters are fuller than ever. Show them some love. 

We hand-make the dough the night before so that it ferments in the Neapolitan style.  We use locally milled flour, San Marzano tomatoes, Fior di Latte, and basil grown in our garden. 

We have hired a mobile wood-fired pizza oven, and are transporting it to make fresh pizzas to order. The oven gets so hot, cooking each pizza takes only a minute, and we can cook three at once. We are aiming for it to be possible to make over 100 pizzas per day. 

Everything is in place. Suppliers are ready for our bulk orders. We have registered with the council, obtained public liability insurance and a food safety certificate. We are ready, but we need help paying for materials and overheads. From 25kg sacks of flour to the rental of the oven, although each pizza is cheap, it adds up each day. We need help.

The money that you give will cover the costs to feed fresh, hand-made pizzas to those most affected by the pandemic.
