I have discovered some great DIY kits these past few months. Businesses are trying to give us the whole experience at home but also ensure the quality of the product is still how we remember it.
Leicester has a great Pizzeria, Peter Pizzeria. They have named their kit Peter in the Pan. For £10 (excellent value), the Pizza DIY Kit includes everything you need to make 2, 10inch Margherita sourdough pizzas. You can get the Kit delivered via EatMe (delivery charges apply) or collect it. They still deliver their pizzas via Deliveroo but I wanted to make it at home.
I loved the idea of trying to spin the pizza (fail) to get that perfect base. I ended up following the instructions pressing the dough out with my fingertips. It is so simple yet a lot of fun.
The Kit comes with a booklet that explains every step clearly. The ingredients were all fresh and high quality (They say to use the pia it within a couple of days The sourdough was also soft and ready to use. There was no scrimping on toppings either. In the DIY Pizza Kit, you get 2 dough balls, parmesan, tomato sauce, basil, extra virgin oil, 00 flour & mozzarella. There are a lot of containers but I am not sure how they can prevent this. At least they can be reused.
I added extra toppings of spicy sausage meat, normal sausage & oregano. I was unsure if the base would be undercooked but it was perfect. Never thought cooking a pizza in a pan then under a grill would turn out great.
Each bite was cheesy, tasty, and just how I remember Peter Pizzeria pizzas and it was
