Here the summer is ending and for me it's fine. I love autumn, and it was a hot and heavy summer.
But the best thing about the summer were the tomatoes, the basil, the fruits,cantaloupes and water melon, peaches, in short, all that summer means.
And that now is the turn of the northern hemisphere.
I had a lot of basil and I love it! so I enjoy it in EVERYTHING, pizzas, salads, stews, soups.
This pizza was wonderful.
