Last week I was transported to Italy via a menu. Kitty's daughter, Jill, a Sicilian by marriage, treated us to authentic pizza creations. The array of toppings was bountiful as were the suggested pizzas.We learned which ingredients are used before baking and which are to be applied as toppings. The combinations were varied and all were delizioso. Each began with tomato sauce spread on the pre-baked crust. Then you made your own using the suggested menu above or a pie individualized to your own tastes. My creation included fresh mozzarella, baked breaded eggplant, roasted red pepper and shredded mozzarella before baking. Afterwards I layered on proscuitto, arugula and shaved parmesan. Jill suggested a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. A veritable feast and I finished it all!
Jill's ricotta pie was, according to her, an experiment since ingredients varied somewhat here. What a happy surprise! Scrumptious! Grazie
