Life is better when you eat pizza. Am I right?

Oakville is home to an amazing culinary scene that features a diverse selection of pizza options for take-out or dine-in. There are even options for those who prefer a hands-on approach, like me. This week, I was looking for a unique at-home activity to do with my family and found great fun in making pizza together.

I started at Ristorante Sotto Sotto, a place that brings Italy to the heart of Oakville, as they have DIY Pizza Kits on their menu. They offer three traditional varieties with ingredients:

DIY Margherita Pizza Kit $17.50

Includes homemade dough (2), tomato sauce, mozzarella, flour and cooking instructions.

DIY Capricciosa Pizza Kit $20.99

Includes homemade dough (2), tomato sauce, mozzarella, ham, artichokes, mushroom, olives, flour and cooking instructions.

DIY Piccantina Pizza Kit $20.99

Includes homemade dough (2), tomato sauce, mozzarella, spicy nduja sausage paste, fresh rapini, flour and cooking instructions.

Placing an order was easy. I just called the restaurant during their hours and arranged a time for pick-up. I ordered the DIY Piccantina Pizza Kit because my family loves spicy food and we have never tried nduja sausage paste before.

Each kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions and two balls of pizza dough. In no time, my family and I had our dough rolled, our toppings placed and our pizzas in the oven. The final result was full of flavourful tomato sauce, spicy nduja sausage paste, light crust and fresh toppings. My expectations were definitely exceeded. 

My family loved this activity and the opportunity to experience a little bit of Italy and Oakville at home. This DIY pizza kit will be added to our ‘family night’ activities.

This at-home selection is a great option for those of you who aren’t comfortable eating out yet, or are even just looking for a night in with family and friends. Support and experience local at your comfort level and add a little hands-on fun to your next family dinner with this easy activity.
