If they choose it themselves, they eat it!” She launched her business in February of this year and has been selling products out of her home and at the farmer’s markets. Laura named her business after her childhood nickname. Looby’s pizzas can be baked in the oven or on the barbecue. Each package contains enough dough for two pizzas and sauce. Most products are sourced locally, including the compostable sauce containers which come from Aaron Vending. “I like a challenge and I like hard work,” she says. “I also like feeling appreciated.” Looby’s pizza dough sells for $10 and the sauce for $4.
