Local Love

I got an email from a friend that I have known since college announcing that she was helping to spread the word about a company start up and wanted to see if anyone would be interested in testing it out.  I am always open to supporting friends and their new endeavors so I signed up to be included.  I wanted to share my experience and maybe someone local is reading and might be interested.
Sandpiper's Pizza

MaryBeth is a full time working mom who knows what its like to live a hectic schedule and at the end of the day, still finding the time to spend with her family.  The concept was brought to life when she created a pizza that was easy to make and got her kids involved.  It was only a matter of time before she was sharing these pizza's within her local circle of friends at potlucks and parties.  

The taste was amazing and with a lot of family and friends supporting her, the idea of making pizza's others could make on their own was born.  Sandpiper's Pizza stands apart from other pizza delivery places simply because their belief that "food is love".  They provide the food and as a family making it together, you are adding the love.   With the "live and eat locally" movement, they felt they could find loyal and repeat clients.  

Sandpiper provides a kit in a gift bag filled with directions on 'how to' prepare your pizza, pre-made dough made with Sandpiper ingredients that are so good, you can't help but fall in love, cheese that has mouth-watering flavor, sauce that you just can't get enough of & meat to top your perfect pizza, ! They are also kind enough to give you parchment paper and a dowel in case you don't have a rolling pin.
I was pretty excited to try this pizza.  I am not an everyday cook and I am looking for things to make that are quick, easy and something my kids will love.  We rolled out our pizza dough, added the sauce, cheese and meat and even got to use the Pampered Chef Pizza Stone that I have owned for nearly 8 years now and have never used.  With the quick tips on how to get the pizza ready and in the oven, we were a happy family in about 20 minutes and that includes preparing and cooking. My kids got to see Mommy at work in the kitchen which, I'm sorry.... its rare and be little chef's of their own!
This was a definite crowd pleaser and when Marybeth says that flavor is what stands them apart from ordering a pizza at your local pit stops, she wasn't kidding.  I have since ordered again from her and saw a friend recently post a picture of her family making Sandpiper pizza and felt jealous.. I need to get more! If you live in the Dallas-Plano-Allen-Frisco-Mckinney area, I urge you to give it a try and have fun making some pizza with your family!
If you are having a party, this is a great idea to serve your guests and perfect for a slumber party!! I can't wait till my kids are old enough to have those!  Sandpiper will be my rescue!  
By the way, I love using my pizza stone now! I can't believe its been pinned up for so long!

Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this review, however my first pizza was free.  I truly loved it and support my local friends and community and feel it is my duty to share with everyone I know.  Opinions are 110% my own.

What a cool idea! I'd purchase something like this for the dough alone! We make pizzas at home all the time, but making the dough can be time consuming! Pretty sweet deal!

I have Pampered Chef stuff that I've never used either. I would get invited to those parties all the time, and you know you're sort of required to buy something if you go, so I have quite the collection of unused kitchen stuff now. ;o)

That is such a cool idea! Then you could totally change it as you wanted too or make it half and half depending on kids.
