The family favourite gets a naughty makeover for this delectable devil’s food cake recipe.

Party pizza

Party pizza

Everyone loves a pizza, but nothing tastes better than one made right from scratch. Knead up the handmade dough and roll out mini pizza bases for the whole family – or share a large pie together. From there, you can throw on pretty much anything you can think of, from fresh veggies and mushrooms to anchovies and chicken – and don’t forget your favourite type of cheese. Finish with a little sprinkle of Italian herbs to tie everything together. Buon appetito!
