    Hi all, just a thought regards pizza recipes and the like. Instead of just mentioning number of servings could you give an idea of how many whole pizzas, or similar, the recipe makes please.

    Never heard of capicola! Is it Parma ham or something like that?

    Thanks Sue for trying! Just wished I didn't have to keep get to g the dictionary out as a Brit for so.e of these recipes. And wish they'd get rid of tbsp and give weights or mls. No idea what a tablespoon - it a cup - is in size

    When you have the cheddar cheese as optional, am I correct to assume that it's not included in the nutritional information? It would be nice to see the nutrition counts if it was included.
  6. Deborah
    Yes, Would like to know that as well , as a newbie, do I had the cheese as extra or not ? Thank you

    I just read Una's post from September 2018 and wanted to point out that on the recipes there is an option to switch the measurements from US to Metric. It's on the left side above the recipe next to the servings that can also be changed. The nutritional information is always given below the recipe, you just have to click on the word 'Nutrition' and a box containing everything you need to know drops down. These things are easy to miss I guess.

    Which question do you still want an answer for?

    All of them Kristin.
    1. Tablespoons are not measurements - grams and ml are.
    2. Include info of "What is a serving"? Some dishes like mummy dogs are 2x per serving while others are 0.5x.
    3. Are optional ingredients counted in the Nutrition box or not?

    It appears the tablespoon issue has been resolved. The servings are listed above the ingredients, and they can be adjusted to suit your needs. Optional ingredients are not included in the nutrition information.
