First off, I hope you are well. It’s been a few years since you posted this recipe and I hope you won your battle against cancer.
Pizza probably represents way too much of my diet. However, that being the case, I feel that that may provide me with some insight as to what makes a great pizza. Your recipe sounds simple, but absolutely delicious. Sometimes less is better.
Again, I hope this finds you in good health.
Thanks Fred. I learned at cooking school in Italy that less is more in cooking. We Americans often complicate tastes by using too many different flavors.
Thanks also for asking how I am doing. I am doing GREAT although my cancer has returned to my lungs and I am presently using a chemo regime to fight them from multiplying or growing and so far…it is working. Praising God for that.
Hope you enjoy the recipe.
