“…like a big pizza pie…”
♥ “That’s amore! ♥
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
“Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you’ll sing ‘Vita bella’
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella…”
“… When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
-Jack Brooks & Harry Warren, Songwriters
~“Grab a slice of pizza…You know as well as I do that a great slice of pizza is like great sex. It’s hot, it’s saucy, it’s frickin’ gooey and makes you sweat.” ~
Even though National Pizza Month isn’t until October, that’s no reason to not appreciate just about everyone’s favorite food now! Did you know that 93% of the population eats pizza? (Who the heck are those other 7%? No one I know!)
And did you know that there is a mathematical theorem named after pizza? It’s called the Pizza theorem. (Sorry, beer or wine are not in the equation, but they should be!)
~ “Pizza is like the entire food pyramid!” ~
– Madeline Oles
~ “My love is pizza shaped. Won’t you have a slice? It’s circular, so there’s enough to go around.
-Dora J. Arod
So many sweet memories are associated with food. And many of mine are associated with pizza…
I’ve always LOVED pizza. My father used to make his every Christmas eve and it was the best! Making the dough in the morning, he would be busy all evening making and proudly serving his pizza. Simple, thin crust, minimal toppings…
We would eat until we almost burst and then have it cold for breakfast the next morning…Yes, it was that good!
I regret that I never learned his technique but there’s no doubt that he set the standard by which I have always compared every bite of pizza since (and very few have measured up).
Now, I love making pizza and enjoying with friends. Since I started leading tours in Puglia with Cook in Puglia, we make pizza together and it is absolutely the best fun!
Aprons on and hands on, kneading and rolling out the dough, choosing our toppings and enjoying each others creations with fabulous local vino… what could be more delightful and delicious?
Any time, any where, there’s nothing like a big pizza pie to bring friends together!
♥ Si, that’s amore! ♥
