Pizza Party

Using COBS Bread pizza bases you can create a multitude of pizza options. Why not get the kids involved too?! Get them to choose their own toppings and even make it themselves. It makes for a fun (and tasty) family activity night. Our pizza bases also come in mini sizes perfect for little tummies. No time to cook? Our ready to eat Mini Pizzas are made fresh in store every day and are available in a variety of flavours. Consider creating a pizza platter so that everyone gets their favourite flavour.
