We've got pizza!

Just Cooking Rustic Italian is in da house! 

Or, rather, in the front garden. 

Either way, the point is WE HAVE PIZZA THIS SUMMER!

Just Cooking will fire up their wood-burning oven in our front garden every Wednesday to Sunday this weekend (weather permitting), offering delicious 10 inch thin crust pizzas for you to enjoy with a glass of Sue-Ann Staff Estate wine. Visit us for lunch and a long lazy afternoon between 12 noon and 4 pm, Friday through Sunday. It's Brix Approved!
