There's nothing I enjoy more than a cold slice of pizza. You wake up after a late night, find leftover pizza in the fridge, and start munching while brewing coffee in your pajamas. Is there no better way to celebrate a successful night and the beginning of a new day? Because I love leftovers, I purposely made extra. My boyfriend is partial to a simple margherita, but I love a white pizza. Trying to find a healthy alternative without tomato (just a bit tomato-ed out from this summer), I settled with a cannellini bean and pancetta pizza with fontina cheese and a lot of arugula on top. Some confit garlic and chili flakes sealed the deal. I had so much dough, and so little oven space, all my pizzas had to be baked in quarter sheet pans. Juggling a ton of quarter sheet pans of pizza with limited counter space, I vowed never to be greedy about making so much for leftovers. Ah the joys of apartment living in NYC. We'll see how my promise holds up.
Venice is magical. When you ignore the other 48402380 tourists, it's heavenly. The canals, the dark alleys, the charming crumbly facade, and the food, everything is so achingly beautiful.
