Cherry tomatoes, basil and mozarella pizza (pizza de tomates cherry, albahaca y mozarella)





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.


Dough adapted from  : Sweetphi.com

  3. Gloria, My wife would love this pizza! I'm a carnivore so it would be OK with me but not as satisfying. We love basil too and my wife has planted basil, thyme and rosemary on our deck. We had to bring them back in until Sunday though as we're getting one more cold snap...with a predicted freeze this weekend. The good news is that Spring is underway here in the north! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
