Bakery Joju's Pizza Dough

Josh Raymer of Bakery Joju has been bringing exceptional wood-fired pizzas and breads to Fredericksburg since 2015. He sources most everything locally, curing his own pork belly, making sausages, drizzling local olive oil over Hill Country cheeses. The list of toppings goes on, but the soul of the pizza is its base. We're lucky enough to have him share his recipe for this award-winning dough.

Carolina Gold Rice

I am pleased that Barton Springs Mill still supplies this traditional regional rice. Once a common staple, this rice is hard to find in specialty restaurants let alone grocery stores. Thanks for keeping this product readily available for those of us who love the taste of down- home Southern cooking.
