4 Cheese Pizza

The basil is quietly growing in the backyard and had enough leaves to harvest...a friend gave a generous amount of freshly harvested tomatoes and there were several cheeses stashed somewhere in the fridge... what to do?

certified yum

A basic margherita has red tomatoes, green basil and white cheese, which represent the Italian flag. This pizza though, had not one, not two, not three, but 4 cheeses! (but just tiny amounts from each...)

A pizza base was made, the tomatoes were bathed in boiling water and the skin removed, the flesh was lightly mashed (for a little texture-imagining sinking your teeth in a sweet, plump piece of tomato... ) and seasoned with salt and pepper. This served as the tomato sauce. Then thinly sliced Castello White and tiny dots of Blue Cheese, a handful of shredded cheddar, thin layer of shaved parmesan, and a sprinkling of fresh basil, were evenly distributed on top. Watch and feel the cheese melt in your mouth... and wash it down with cold beer!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
