Fratelli Fresh is stretching the takeaway pizza concept to a whole new level this lockdown, with Dough It Yourself pizza kits enabling diners to build a pizza on par with those created by Fratelli Fresh Head Pizzaiolo William Baffoni.
Rather than a ready-to-eat pizza delivered cooked and boxed, diners can add an entertaining twist to family mealtimes, with sourdough pizza balls ready to be stretched, tossed and topped at home before being served piping hot, fresh from the oven.
Famous for its pizzas, which are built on a hand-stretched sourdough Neapolitan-style crust that boasts a thin layer of crispness and an airy interior, Fratelli is giving customers the gift of creating their own masterpieces at home.
The DIY kit comes with four sourdough balls, house-made pizza sauce, and toppings such as Buffalo Mozzarella, spicy salami, Kalamata olives, ham, sundried tomatoes, roasted peppers, pepperoncini and marinated artichokes. A rocket and parmesan salad and recipe instructions are also included.
The Dough It Yourself Pizza Kit is just one of several meal kits now available to purchase via the Fratelli Grocer website. Customers can choose to pick up from Fratelli Fresh Manly, or have their Fratelli purchases, packed with love and delivered to their home.
Other kits include the All The Ragu Pasta Pack, Blue Swimmer Crab Spaghettini, 12-hour slow-cooked Lamb Shoulder Sunday Roast, and Beef Cheeks with accompanying truffle mash and Dutch carrots.
Those who would rather rest than stretch themselves this lockdown, can take comfort in a range of ready-made dishes, including lasagne (beef and vegetarian), three types of ragu (lamb, beef cheek, and wagyu) that can be paired with fresh hand-cut pappardelle, and a revolving line-up of Chef’s Specials.
Single serves of Tiramisu, slices of Banoffee Torta, and slabs of Lemon Meringue will help sweeten up Sydney restrictions, while a range of ready-to-pour cocktails bring Fratelli festivities to the door. The bottled cocktail line-up includes Eastern Standard, No Way Rosé, Aperol Spritz and a quartet of margarita flavours: Sicilian, Watermelon Chilli, Coconut and Passionfruit. Affordable bottles of Italian red and white wines are also available.
Fratelli Fresh Food & Beverage Director Molly Haranis said the DIY kits offered convenience as well as a fun Fratelli experience for families during lockdown.
“Fun, affordable, and flavour-packed, our finish-at-home meal kits are easy to prepare and bring all the flavours of Fratelli to family mealtimes,” she said.
“Fratelli Grocer promises to alleviate some of the lockdown boredom and food fatigue that families are currently under, but most importantly we wanted to bring our loyal customers a little Fratelli love.”
Fratelli Grocer deliveries are available Thursday to Saturday, with 3pm cut-off the day prior. Pick up is available from Fratelli Fresh Manly (54 West Esplanade) after 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
