#1 Root-Master Pizza Recipes

Well, as always, Jamie Oliver has done it again!
I was skeptical when we first traveled to Italy… I thought, oh sure they are going to have some horrible version of what we think of pizza…Italian_Pizza

We ate pizza on the Ponte Vecchio (old bridge), built in 1345, in Florence… or Firenze as it is called in Italy (I still cannot understand why we insist on calling it Florence) … in the piazzas, on the Spanish Steps in Rome… and in, of course, Figline Valdarno, located in the countryside of Tuscany, where we love to stay at CasaNuova, a 350 year old monastery turned working vineyard!

I would be there in a heartbeat tomorrow if I could! Awww… to sit on the veranda, sipping wine, eating… oh but I digress.

Apologies for my long absence life has taken over. We have managed to eat here and there in the midst of that life, so this week I hope to share more of the busy-life dinners that have become so much a part of our routine.

One of the ways I’m surviving this tornado of grading papers, writing, reading, discussing, tutoring, planning, committee-sitting, and teaching is by spending a little time in the kitchen to prepare for (at least) two meals at a time.
