Recipe Tips

Two words describe the best way to store fresh tomatoes---never refrigerate. Refrigerator temperatures can cause tomatoes to become mealy or watery in texture and milder in flavor.

This pizza was good, but for me too much cheese. I thought it could use something more to add to the flavor, but I will try it a second time to make sure.
