Chris here! First, we want to say THANK YOU to all our new subscribers online. If you’re new here, we send out monthly newsletters (which you can join here) to our #fondifamily with videos, cooking tips & secrets, the latest happenings, + blogs about our favorite topic, pizza.

Second, in this edition, we are taking you with us behind our pantry to share with you what makes our Bella Chopped Salad one our our house specialities.

A.K.A. Bella or Chop Chop.

So many of you have asked us over the years “why’s this salad soooo good?” While we can’t just divulge all our secretes and give you the entire recipe, our pizza ancestors have allowed us to share with you the basics to making the dressing.
