Outsource Easter Meals

All the delights of a Coci Cucina breakfast pizza are still available, just a phone call away.

By Karla Walsh

Craving a break from cook-a-palooza 2020? Same. And since none of us needs more stress about creating the just-flaky-enough pie crust or kneading and rolling picture-perfect hot cross buns, I vote that we outsource to the pros.
