How to Assemble Pizza

Here is how we assemble our pizzas.  Make it a family affair and give each one something to put on the dough.  We prefer 'our' pizza than 'mine'!  Just a little bit of child training...

This is not really a diet food, yet you can vary your toppings to suit your diet.  Look around for some that suits your style and taste.

Jaco's Relish

Jaco's Relish

My father-in-law makes this delicious 'concoction' with chillies and onions that they preserve and eat with most savoury dishes.  It will really spice-up sandwiches as well.  The amount of heat you get depends on the type of chilli you use, and the amount can easily be adjusted accordingly.
