Gluten free pizza

Hello Dear Reader,

Supper tonight was always going to be a whatever I could find in the fridge night but on the way home we almost succumbed to pizza takeaway. Our local chippy is now a Domino’s pizza. Whilst I drove, DB rang them to find out how much a gluten free pizza would cost. £9 For tomato and cheese plus £1.50 for each topping and it was only a 9″ pizza. We thanked them for the information. £9! Who on earth pays £9 for pizza? 

I used gluten free wraps, half a jar of basics pasta sauce, two tomatoes, budget wafer thin ham, some mushrooms, a tin of sweet corn and three slices of low fat Cheddar. 

The wraps were expensive but I wanted something pizza-ish and this is pretty close and was assembled in a couple of minutes and cooked in a hot oven in ten.

We kept it cheap and low calorie as we had very little cheese.

With the exception of the wraps, the topping for three pizzas cost the under £1.50 and £3 for a pack of wraps. A bit of a budget blowout for us but a lot less than £9 for one little pizza.

A perfect Friday fakeaway. We might have a Domino’s pizza takeaway in Liskeard but at those prizes, we won’t be going there.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxxx


Footloose and fancy tea


Hello Dear Reader,
It’s been ages since I posted a review but I went somewhere really lovely today and thought I would tell you about it. A South West chain of ethical cafes has opened in Plymouth and I went there with colleagues for a gathering after work. Boston Tea Party cafes started in Bristol and have brought their Clifton vibe with them. The decor is recycled and up cycled and the food has a real care about sourcing. 
My friends fared better than I did as there were only two GF items on the menu. I had the super salad, for £7.50 and a pot of de-caff tea which brought my lunch to £9.95. It was expensive (for me, but realistic in terms of costing) but as a treat, even with only two Coeliac friendly items and sadly no guarantee that food won’t be cross contaminated with allergens, I would go back. They had all day breakfasts, toasted sandwiches, burgers, soups, sides, smoothies and lots of lovely fancy tea. 
We rarely eat out but my friends informed me that the prices were reasonable and widely comparable. All meat and eggs are free range, all tea is ethically sourced and organic, all their milk is organic too. Their breads are made by Hobb’s House bakery and their entire menu and up cycled interior really does demonstrate a commitment to sustainability.
It’s a great cafe and I can totally recommend the place. However, and this is a however for all caterers, Coeliacs are 1 in 100, we really would enjoy a meal out once in a while so would you all remember that every 100th customer has very little choice when we eat out and you would increase your customer base by 1% daily if we could eat too. 
Back to my lovely lunch, It was a great salad full of pumpkin seeds, avocado, mango and really delicious.
Until tomorrow,
Love Froogs
