School Pizza Evenings
Doughies can help your school PTA raise funds by holding a school pizza evening. We provide everything you need to make and bake the pizzas at home, with fresh kits delivered to your school, ready to be conveniently collected by parents.
Start with the PDF
The Doughies for Schools PDF explains how it works and includes pricing and a recent case study.
Delivery throughout the UK
We generally run events for schools throughout London, the South West, the South East and the East of England, but can arrange events for schools throughout the country provided we have enough notice.
We don't charge a delivery fee, so for schools that are far away, we schedule a few other local schools on the same day to cover the costs of travel. If you have contacts in other schools and can help arrange this, we would be very grateful.
How we deliver your kits
In terms of delivery timing - we try to deliver near the time that parents will be collecting the orders from the school. By doing this, we can ensure the dough is at the perfect temperature for baking that evening. We'll work this out with you based on your event and collection details.
Allergies and options
We offer regular pizza kits, and vegan kits, but we don't offer gluten free as the dough is very sticky and difficult to work with, so often results in a mess and not a great experience. All our kits are nut and seed free and include an allergen label and ingredient list.
Free marketing flyer
We customise a flyer for you to use to market your event. Once you've worked out your event details, we'll create one for you to make it easy to distribute to parents. Download an example flyer here.
Final order numbers
We suggest giving yourself 2 weeks to market your event as this tends to generate the best results. We need to receive your final order numbers a week before your event delivery date. So for a Friday delivery, we need final order numbers by the previous Friday.
Order and payment solution
You are welcome to use our order and payment system to save the time it takes to collate orders and take payments. We create a dedicated page on the Doughies website and give you the link to distribute. If using our system, we'll already have your orders so there's no need to send us the final spreadsheet. We pay you the week after your event, as soon as we've received an invoice including your payment details.
If you're using your own order and payment system, we require a spreadsheet of all the orders received per family so that we can package them as singles, doubles and triple kits for each family as this reduces packaging waste.
Making it a regular event
We have a number of schools now who are doing regular pizza evenings as it gives parents a chance to re-order and makes it an ongoing fundraiser for the PTA. If your event goes well and you're interested in doing a bi-monthly, or termly event, we can arrange it.
