Share your recipes for next week and enjoy no-knead pizza this week

Several people have suggested that members of the Dawson College community could share recipes to help us through these difficult times. Christina Parsons (Communications) would like to get this started with a recipe she loves from childhood friend Claire Tansey, who grew up to become a chef and cookbook author. Time and yeast will do all the work overnight and you can enjoy homemade pizza the next day. There are more great recipes in Claire's 2018 book Uncomplicated.

Please share your favourite recipe(s) by using the submit news form or emailing Christina. Recipes will be shared in upcoming D News issues.
