You are so innocent sitting there on the menu sweet crepes. I know I see you at every creperie we go to, but somehow, you are overlooked.

Our homemade pizzas are often layered with zucchini, chicken, tomatoes, onions, and olives, but from now on I’m going to try and stick with the beauty of the basics.

What’s the best pizza you’ve ever eaten?
