* = Members Only Items.
** = Healing amount is dependant on your Constitution level.

Additional miscellaneous info: if you burn a pizza, you get a "rebate" boost of an additional 74 xp for the next two pizzas you make (180 xp for each of next two pizzas versus regular 143 xp, which is 37 xp additional for each pizza). This "rebate" does not seem to occur on anything else.
Meat and anchovy pizza xp shown is just for adding topping to an existing cooked pizza. Chocolate cake xp is just for adding chocolate to existing cake.
The experience given for potatoes includes making all the toppings. So to get the full experience from, say, a tuna potato, you would have to cook the tuna, cook the sweetcorn, make the topping, bake the potato, and then place the topping on the potato.
