Breakaway from the takeaway: these homemade pizzas are far better

Thinking of dialing up your local pizza delivery? Put the phone down – we’ve got you covered

It’s the end of a busy week and the sofa is calling. Three things are important right now; pjs, Netflix and pizza – there’s little that a slice of the good stuff won’t cure. But wait… before you reach for that phone (and subsequently suffer the 90 minute estimated delivery time) take a look at your very own takeaway menu, with one slight difference; it’s homemade, easy and most recipes are quicker to make than you can say... deliverwho?
