wait, you pay $15 bucks to get a raw pizza delivered to your door?
@Jeb, no, you pay $15 to get a raw pizza you have to collect, you pay extra for delivery.
maybe I’m missing something, but that doesn’t make a lot of sense to me…80, how was it compared to Boli’s?
ok stop me if this is a dumb question, but why wouldn’t you just make actual homemade pizza, considering that it would cost significantly less and be significantly easier (i.e., no need to leave the house)?
I am with the team at HomeMade Pizza Co. We definitely get that there are folks out there who want to make their own pizzas from scratch–and we love that they are in the kitchen doing it. We’re here for those nights when the grocery store is just too daunting, dinner time is too close, or the task list is still unfinished. We pride ourselves on making our dough, sauce, ingredients all from scratch. Our vendors drop off produce throughout the week so we can offer the best quality food.
By the way–I pulled the ingredient statement for DiGiorno’s Italian Sausage and Onion pizza. We have a Sausage and Caramelized Onion Pizza as well. There are a few things you won’t find in our pizzas included in the DiGiorno’s. Our dough contains only 6 ingredients–water, salt, yeast, extra virgin olive oil, flour and sugar. The wheat crust is even sugar-free. The DiGiorno’s label is pretty lengthy–but here are a few scary highlights:
1. BHA, BHT are both used to preserve DiGiorno’s sausage and have both been linked to carcinogenicity or tumorigenicity; likewise, many people are unable to process them and the result is behaviorial changes (i.e. hyperactivity in children).
2. Partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil are also found in DiGiorno’s pizza. Trans fat is super not great for you and should definitely be avoided.
3. Mono-and diglycerides are also suspect but haven’t been studied enough. Definitely not something you would use in your home kitchen.
4. Sodium aluminum phosphate can be toxic if consumed in large amounts or included in a diet that includes other aluminums (aluminum is linked to alzheimer’s).
Our goal has been to make food we are happy and proud to serve to our family and friends. Heck, most of our family and friends share the table with us weekly. Our kitchens are full of products you can pronounce and use for all-natural home meals as well. The food world is a scary place right now–and we aim to be a little respite from some of the possible hidden dangers.
If any of you live near one of our stores, I would be happy to meet up with you and talk a little bit more about what we do and even throw in dinner. Email me above to chat. –Mike
