Last month we stopped by the pizza bar Sbarro for lunch. We enjoyed huge slices of Cajun chicken pizza and ice-cold fizzy drinks followed by some warm cookies for dessert. 2 slices, 2 cans and 3 cookies came to €15. Not bad for a lunch for two that kept us full and satisfied for the rest of the afternoon.
At the weekend I decided to stay in and make my own pizza. I smothered a shop-bought base in plum tomatoes, piled it high with mozzarella cheese and heaped on chicken, mushrooms and sweet corn. I found all the toppings in my cupboard and fridge; it took five minutes to assemble and ten minutes in the oven. I couldn’t believe how something so quick and simple could taste so good! It’s going to be a regular thing in our house from now on and I can’t wait to experiment with loads of different toppings. That’s not to say we won’t ever be returning to Sbarro but I will have very high expectations for my next visit.
