There’s something definitely different about this Friday as I share the recipe. The sun was really smiling, there were flowers everywhere, the sleep seemed complete and it made us want to go out with a straw hat and stroll the street in a summery dress, occasionally stopping by for a glass of lemonade or some coffee by the bistro.
We feel Tuscany and so will our cuisine! Here’s some homemade Smokey Tomato Pizza for you to make you feel as if you are in Italy. After all, you travel, when the mind travels!
