Why we loved it:

We all love pizza, but sometimes we don’t have time to make the dough from scratch. Bella has discovered a really clever trick to help solve that, use pitta bread! When pitta bread is cooked it goes crispy like a pizza base and they’re the perfect size for one person!

Bella’s favourite pizza toppings are chorizo and cheddar, but the great thing about pizza is that you can add whatever you like to make it right for you. Olives, peppers, mushrooms, ham… the combinations are endless!
