I grew with an Italian mom, so, she would make homemade pizza for our family every Saturday!   I still have great memories of her making two pizza’s for our family of six every weekend.  And, back then, as I am today, I was a picky eater.  I used to scrape off all the meat and veggies onto my plate and my dad would eat my toppings.  lol.  I was happy eating just the tomatoes and the pizza pie/crust. 'buon appetito"
