So tonight was a night for spectacular things… it was a night of celebration, as well as a night to put a spin on a traditional pizza!
Yesterday I made focaccia with the intent of using it as a base to layer up a gorgeous pizza. Homemade sauce was layered on the bottom, then some grated pecorino, slices of milky fresh mozz and a healthy drizzle of extra virgin! Into the oven and twenty minutes later… well there are no words for the mind-blowing experience we had. The crust was perfectly crunchy, salty and airy… meanwhile the sauce was rustic, the pecorino slightly salty and the fresh mozz creamy and melty.
To finish off such a rich and hearty meal, what better than a slice of yes… LIME pie with a fluffy and perfectly browned meringue topping! This is not just any pie, but a celebratory one to congratulate a hardworking woman who touches our lives in many ways! The filling was made the other day and got its close-up today when poured into the buttery graham cracker crust and topped off with a beautiful spiked meringue. Browned and gorgeous meringue was the barrier to a creamy, zesty lime filling. Now I’ll need to make more to satiate my breakfast tea and toast!!
at a low simmer…
