Care home turns into pizzeria for National Pizza Day

A TEESSIDE care home transformed into a pizzeria for the day as residents baked their own Italian creations. National Pizza Day was celebrated by staff and residents at The Beeches Care Home, on Green Lane, Stockton-on-Tees.

Alwyn Behan, 86, Marian Knightly, 83, Jane Monaghan, 72, and Sylvia Smith, 77, were among those who created their own pizzas.

The residents chose their favourite toppings, including pepperoni, chicken, ham, and a variety of vegetables, before baking them in the oven.

Jane Monaghan said: “Pizza making has gone very well. Only I’ve got tomatoes everywhere. I’ve always been a messy cook. 

“It brought back memories of pizza-making parties with my grandchildren. My favourite pizza is double cheese with herbs.”

Marian Knightly said: “I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s something different to do. My favourite is mushroom and cheese.” 

Alwyn Behan added: “I’ve enjoyed pizza making. It’s nice doing it myself and putting the different toppings on. My favourite is chicken and vegetables.”

Jess Brown, home manager at The Beeches Care Home, said: “National Pizza Day was an opportunity to get messy and make our own pizzas.

“The residents loved it. It brought back fond memories for many. And then they all enjoyed a slice with their afternoon tea.”

The Beeches Care Home is part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit
