Pizza Making Blogger Event | I Just Love It

I Just Love It blogger event

I recently attended a blogger event hosted by I Just Love It. If you haven't already heard of I Just Love It, they are an online gifting company who stock a selection of products ranging from personalised gifts, toys, accessories, sweets and alcohol treats. The event they organised was a pizza making masterclass at La Cucina Caldesi cookery school in London. As soon as I saw pizza mentioned in the invite I have to say I jumped at the opportunity to attend. I love pizza and I've never actually made my own personalised pizza before so I knew it would be so much fun.

When we arrived we were greeted with some lovely Italian nibbles and a glass of Prosecco and began the evening chatting away to the I Just Love It team.

They had put together such a pretty display showing off some of their products so we spent some time having a browse at these. I fell in love with these pretty light up letters!

After this it was time to begin making our personalised pizzas. The masterclass was lead by chef Steffano Borella and he began by showing us a demonstration of how it's done. He went through in detail exactly what we needed to do with the dough, what toppings work well together and how to get it exactly right. It was really interesting listening to him and very helpful having him demonstrate before we started making our own - I would of been clueless otherwise.

There was such a huge range of toppings to choose from for our pizzas I was completely spoilt for choice. I decided to keep it fairly simple and went for tomato, mozzarella cheese, smoky cheese, Parmesan cheese, a basil leaf and some spicy Italian sausage (yes I am a massive cheese lover).

After preparing our pizzas it was time to put them into the oven. You would think this would be the easy part but unfortunately not.... We had to get it onto a pizza shovel and I managed to be the only person to mess this up and tipped my pizza upside down trying to do it (oops!). Thankfully I recovered my pizza and eventually got it into the oven to cook.

Around 10-15 minutes later it was time to get them out of the oven and tuck into our pizzas. Everyone's pizza looked and smelt absolutely gorgeous! My pizza was so yummy - the cheeses and spicy sausage tasted so good together.

When it was time to leave the I Just Love It team gave each of us a goody bag to take home with us. This was such a nice extra and I was so excited to get home and see what was inside.

The goody bag included:

This is definitely one of the most generous goody bags I have ever received, I love every single item inside and it is so lovely that the pizza plate, teaspoon, cushion cover and pencils were personalised for each of us. My favourites are probably the cocktail candle which smells absolutely amazing and the tasting spoon too which is so cute. I got the Mojito candle but they do other cocktail inspired candles as well so I will definitely be purchasing another soon.

I had such a good time at this event, it was so nice to get to know I Just Love It - next time I need to by a gift for someone I will definitely be heading to their website, they have such a huge selection of products to choose from. Massive thank you to the I Just Love It team for hosting such an amazing evening.
