Wild leek and duck pizza

It was an early spring day. Crisply sunny, but the ground was still firm with frost. The two of us walked through the forest with our canine companion. He is prone to bursts of excited barking when we cross paths with other hikers and dogs, so I watched the trail ahead carefully. I was watching so […]

Spinach and artichoke dip…pizza!

I am not usually a fan of artichokes. Fresh or in oil, they’ve just never been my thing. But there are two things that I do like artichokes in: artichoke garlic pesto (weird, I know, but it’s really good) and good ol’ run-of-the-mill hot cheesy artichoke dip.

Pesto, bacon and egg pizza

Have you ever dreamed up a pizza with an odd combination that came out just perfectly?

After 28 years of living, eating, and cooking, I hereby proclaim my most favourite food in the world to be… Drumroll please… …Pizza! Okay, maybe I’ve only been cooking for 20 years. But I’ve been eating Pizza for at least 26. Right mom? It used to be if someone were to ask me: “Hey Soph, […]

Saturday Night Pizza Fever

Cheesler is a wealth of ideas, culinary and otherwise. While I tend to scour the internet and my cookbooks, looking for something interesting to cook, he actually spends time coming up with cockamamy recipes. Which is how PCP was born. Don’t ask me why we turn everything we say into acronyms, it’s this weird couple […]
