The pizza order has been placed!

I think this is possibly the first time I’ve ever walked into a pizza takeaway and ordered 17 pizzas…

The order was based on votes from the delegates, so hopefully there’ll be something for everyone 🙂

3 x Margherita Raffaele [V]
1 x Bianco Salmon
1 x Italian Sausage Fiamma
2 x Carnevale
1 x The Works
1 x The Mexican
1 x Papa’s Pepperoni Plus
2 x Garden Special [V]
1 x Hawaiian Special
2 x Hot Pepper Passion [V]
1 x Papa’s Pepperoni
1 x Double Chicken & Mushroom
