Pizza is BETTER in a Stocking

Give the Gift of Pizza. (It’s the easiest decision you’ll make. Ever.)

Pizza in a stocking? What?! We can’t think of anything better than finding a Prima Strada Gift Card in our Christmas Stocking. Are you listening Santa?

Prima Strada’s new eGift cards allow you to send a gift instantly! Purchase online or at any of our three locations.  Stocking stuffer, Secret Santa, holiday gatherings or an end of year ‘Thank You’ – it’s the perfect gift.  Every friend group should have at least one Pizza Angel.

Prima Strada Pronto!
It’s lunch time! Try Prima Strada Pronto!

We know your goal is to bring lunch from home every day.  It’s ours too!

We’ve read articles, bought books, double batched recipes and even picked out the perfect containers. (Who doesn’t want to eat their lunch from a really cool bowl or bento box?) Then reality sets in and not only have we run out of ideas but the usual items just aren’t cutting it and neither are the leftovers.

We realize this sounds crazy coming from us. You’re thinking, “You’re Prima Strada! You make pizza and gelato and so many other good things. You think about food all day long and some of you are actually schooled cooks!”  We know, we know.

The Support Team works upstairs from Prima Strada Production. No pizza here. Most mornings we determine our lunch options – generally we (Prima Strada Support Team) eat lunch at our desks. This makes pooling our resources fairly easy. Between us all we usually have veggies, fresh bread, cheese and assorted meats. It’s not pizza but it’s the next best.  You see where we’re going with this?

Prima Strada Pronto!  It’s fast, healthy and won’t cost much.

We’re starting with 4 simple items, prepared in 10 minutes or less…

Saying this recipe is better than our Nonna’s would be a bad idea, but she’ll never know if we just think it…

Spaghetti with Warm Olives and Arugula 2 tbsp olive oil 1 small yellow onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, chopped fine 1/4 cup of white wine Prima Strada mixed olives 500 g dried spaghetti 1 generous handful of arugula Prima Strada chili oil, to taste 1 lemon, zest chunk of parmigiano Salt & Pepper, to taste

Add PPS mixed olives to the frying pan to warm them. Deglaze with…
