We take a look at all the new recipes you can create with the pizza oven, and how you can use the mixer to make perfect pizza fully from scratch, meaning even those with the lot challenge for self-sufficiency can enjoy these treats.


Where To Get The Pizza Oven

The pizza oven is a freestanding machine that can be purchased from build buy mode for $685. You need to place it on a counter top or stall with the open end accessible for your Sim. They will then be able to use it to make pizzas. The pizza oven can also be transported in your inventory and is usable off-the-grid, so you can use it anywhere you like.

The pizza oven is designed to be used in conjunction with the stand mixer. You use the mixer first to create ingredients such as dough, and prepped veggies, meat, or fish. There are also lactose and meat-free alternatives. Using these prepped ingredients reduces the cooking cost and improves the quality of your pizzas.

How To Prepare Ingredients In The Stand Mixer

We’ve also included the cost of making it straight from the menu versus the cost of the raw ingredients. If you have some fresh items you can tick the use fresh ingredients box and the cost of these will be discounted from the regular price.

To make Meat Substitute you’ll need one Mushroom, Aubergine, Soy Bean, or Faux Meat Cube and the Canning Skill. With the ingredients in your inventory, click on an Oven, select Canning, and Meat Substitute is at the top, requiring just Level One Canning.

To make prepared ingredients simply click the stand mixer and select the desired option from the pop-up menu.

To fully cook from scratch requires Cottage Living which includes the canning skill, grocery store, and grocery delivery services as well as a lot challenge requiring you to use fresh ingredients.

Making dough from scratch is costly, but you can save Simoleons if you buy the raw ingredients for it, and it also improves the quality of your food. It does add a little extra time but very little overall, especially with an upgraded Stand Mixer.
