For many people, Friday is the end of the school/work week and if you have a wood fired pizza oven it’s a good *excuse* for a Friday pizza night! Of course, while making your own home-made pizzas are fun, you don’t *have* to stick to the tried and true pizza shop menu style pizzas – ham and pineapple, supreme, bacon and chicken, meat lover etc. When you can prepare, and cook pizzas at home why not switch it up? Why not try some different pizza topping ideas?
At Sydney Heaters and Pizza Ovens, we want to share some pizza topping ideas that may never have crossed your mind!
