Q: What do you call a mouse who can pick up a horse?
Salami and Peppadew are a flavor combination I have not tried on pizza before, but definitely will again. The sweet/spicy peppers contrast perfectly with the creamy mozzarella and bold salami. Some chili flakes add even more of a feisty bite.

I think it is safe to say that everyone in the Northern Hemisphere has had it with snowflakes by this stage of the calendar.
However, the singular form of snowflake, in the form of a song by Edinburgh based band Quiet As A Mouse, is most welcome.
“Snowflake”, from QAAM’s second EP ‘Memorybox’ (released last week), lopes slowly with measured sadness to start. Finally, the chap has had enough of his baggage and drops it at the 2:36 minute mark with an explosion of guitar.
