Summer is here and with us all eating at home more often, that means one thing - dinners al-fresco.
There’s no need for your menu to be limited to barbecue cuts though. You can bring variety to your menu with clever cookery gadgets like a pizza oven that will let you bake fresh artisan pies and bread in your backyard in no time.
Just in time for summer, Lidl is offering a compact Barbecue Pizza Oven for just shy of £40.
The budget buy is available in store only from Thursday, May 21 so it’s the perfect thing to add to your shopping basket the next time you do your weekly shop.
It comes with a base to cook 12-inch pizzas as well as an integrated thermostat so you can make sure the heat is at the right level to crisp up your margarita. It also works on gas and charcoal barbecues so should work on any BBQ model you currently have at home.
