Napolina is an Italian brand of goods. They have a lovely range of Italian products which includes pasta, sauce, olive oils and other speciality items including pizza bases and toppings.
We were asked to take part in a fun blogger challenge which involved creating funny faces on pizza. They sent us over some of their pizza bases, these come as small and large, also some tomato pizza topping, olive oil, olives and a store voucher to buy some extras.
All 3 of my children were very happy to take part in this and they all could not wait to make their own special pizzas. I was also more than happy to make something. See I don’t normality eat pizza because I detest cheese. The plain pizza bases provide the perfect opportunity to create a non cheese type pizza and instead of cheese I make (or buy) a garlic butter.
I purchased quite a few different ingredients as my children all like and dislike different things. I bought cheese, onion, mushrooms, ham, chicken, hot dogs and pepperoni and chopped everything up and just let them do their own thing. We all managed to make 2 each over the space of 2 days.
We all began the pizzas using the tomato pizza sauce.This is really easy to spread and we found a little goes a long way.
The pizzas (including my non cheese one) tasted great and much better than the greasy take away versions; we all agreed on that. They are also cheaper and healthier as we make them ourselves so we know exactly what we are putting on them.
We used the sent bottle of olive oil to drizzle a little over the pizzas prior to cooking, this helps with the crispness and flavour too.
We enjoyed our home made pizzas so much that we just had to go out and find some more Napolina pizza bases and sauce and make even more.
