Pizzaland is a child theme of the Twenty Fifteen default WordPress theme. This ensures that it’s got a solid basis on which it’s built. It’s specifically designed for restaurants and cafes. However, it can be used as a blogging theme without installing any of the recommended plugins. To use as a blog, make sure you have a copy of the Twenty Fifteen theme in your WordPress installation, download Pizzaland from WordPress.org themes repository or from the WordPress Themes Admin panel, and activate it.
Pizzaland comes to its own when the following plugins are installed and activated:
– Restaurant Reservations Plugin, by NateWr
– Testimonials Widget plugin, by Michael Cannon and saurabhd
– Team Members Plugin, by WP Darko.
When the Food and Drink Menu plugin and the Testimonials Widget plugin are activated, make sure you add a page as your Home page and select the Restaurant Home custom page template from the Template box in the page editor.
- Colorbox lightbox on native WordPress Gallery
- 2 widget areas in the Home page on top of the widget area provided by the parent theme
- Customizer Options
- Optional Custom Header Image of 180px x 204px to use as logo.
- Full-width Body Background Image
- Option to change the text in the Footer area
- 4 color schemes:
- Green and Red (default)
- Blue, Gray and Amber
- Indigo and Lime
- Pink and Amber
- Restaurant front page customization options
The recommended dimensions for your Pizzaland Child Theme are:
– Featured Image has a width of 825px (keep the height proportional).
– The Body Background Image has a width of at least 1920px (keep the height proportional and make sure the image is optimized as much as possible without loss of quality).
– The Header Logo Image is 180px by 204px.
Tutorials and Support

For support, you can contact me on this blog or you can ask for support on the WordPress.org Support Forum.
For CSS modifications, I recommend using a custom CSS editor like the Simple Custom CSS plugin, freely available on the WP.org plugins repository. This is important if you don’t want to lose your customizations on the next theme’s update.
