The last pizza recipe you’ll ever need

A short journal entry to immortalise the rebuild of our dad’s pizza recipe that turned into a Twitter embed adventure!

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.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

If you enjoyed it, and think others would benefit from the read then feel free to share it on Twitter (or elsewhere). I’m always up for a discussion about anything I’ve written too, so get in touch if you want to chat!

If you’ve spotted something out of place or something needs correcting, feel free to open a PR for this entry, raise an issue, or let me know.
