Pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza

What better way to bring people together than with food?

Working with fresh ingredients, clients at the 5-star aged care community, Arcare Templestowe worked together to create delicious wood-fire pizzas.

Having choice is one of the most important things in life. Being able to select your own ingredients and add a little extra of those that you love, can really make all the difference and help empower individuals.

Clients enjoyed sitting around the table together, kneading the dough, spreading the sauce and generously sprinkling the yummy toppings. Stories were shared about past cooking experiences and favourite meals.

However a few clients became defensive during the cooking process, when an Italian client insisted that pineapple does not belong on a pizza. This created a heated, and hilarious debate over pizza toppings. However it was all in good fun, as everyone laughed and sat together, as they devoured their pizza creations.
