I see today is National Pizza Day!! Woo Hoo! Sandro is the pizza maker in the family. He spent years in the kitchen of a local restaurant making pizza after pizza. He worked with a chef who was very particular so Sandro perfected his pizza making skills over the time with her and of course with Mama Gina! (my mother-in-law). She makes a very good and authentic Italian Pizza unlike the one you see is America! Oh so good!
One night he put a twist on the pizza and made it in a cast iron skillet. OMG! It was a deep dish pizza yet like a regular pizza with the topping on the top of course. Try this out as you will not regret it. The crust is crispy yet soft in the center. Mom (the Julia of Julia’s Child) and I ask Sandro to make this for us quite often. Friday’s are made for pizzas! So I guess it’s a day early this week!
