In 2019, my brothers and I gifted our dad his pizza recipe as its own website.
At the tail end of February I redesigned and rebuilt it. Having used it a number of times myself, I found the original design was fiddly and distracted from the recipe. Version 2 was much more pared down, and stripped away all of the superfluous fluff.
I tweeted about it at the time too, but tweets are so ephemeral:
Out with the old… in with the new! ourdadmakes.pizza has had a face-lift.
It now has a more content-focused design that is less cluttered and more to the point.
If you're looking for a lockdown recipe to try and you love pizza then this is your chance to give it a go! 🍕
This is a very short journal entry to immortalise it a little more solidly.
Okay, you caught me… It was an excuse to try out embedding tweets directly into my Eleventy build (I used Kyle Mit’s plugin as a starting point, but wanted finer control over the markup so forked it and slimmed it down to my exact use-case).
…if do you use the recipe though, let me know what you think! We’re always here to hear feedback or positive stories of people using it.
