Do you sell take-home packs?

Many of our flavours are pre-packaged into 1-litre ($15) and 500ml ($9) take-home packs. If we don't have the one you want in the freezer, we can scoop for you at no extra cost. There is a surcharge of $2 on some of our flavours which are very expensive to produce, such as hazelnut, pistachio and 'Ferrero Rocher'.

Do you have gluten-free pizza?

We do have gluten-free bases, however we cannot make to coeliac standard. They are cooked in the same oven and when it is windy, there is flour flying around.
