Recipes from the Beyond
Vol. 1

I know what you’re thinking. What does a dead guy know about baking? This dead guy knows it all. I’m Valentine Monty and the Montys have been a part of Monte Vista for as long as anyone can remember. Now that I’ve gotten my second chance I’m giving you all of the “to die for” Monty dishes in my new series: Recipes from the Beyond!

Now here’s the recipe for my world famous Pizza Margherita and it all starts with a fresh lump of dough and a wood fire oven:

  1. Pull a lump of lightly-oiled dough from your refrigerator.
  2. Lay the dough on the counter and knead it carefully and thoroughly until fairly flat
  3. Toss the dough in the air to achieve perfect flatness and perfect lift.Now for the hard part:
  4. When the dough is flat, sprinkle it with “Monte Vista Magic Seasonings”. This invisible magic seasoning is a MUST for any wood fire oven recipe.
  5. Once properly sprinkled use the paddle to place the pizza in the Wood Fire Oven. Safety First!
  6. Cook until nice and toasty.

What about the cheese and tomatoes you ask? What did you think we were doing with all of that sprinkling? When your pizza comes out of the oven, the toppings will be perfectly arranged making for a *perfect* pizza margherita. That’s it from me. Until next time, Buonasera!


The World

Monte Vista is a beautiful world, inspired by Italy! It comes with a brand new texture, which makes the world unique and special. There are lots of new Rabbit Holes/Venues for your Sims to visit, and 20 unpopulated houses look perfect for your Sims’ new beginning!
