Musical Pairing: I Run to You, Lady Antebellum
Contrary to what you might think, pizza in Italy is quite different from here in the States . . . sorry, but I speak the truth here. I was fortunate to spend some time in Italy in 1997 and like a lot of folks, thought that pizza only consisted of pepperoni, sausage, cheese – and lots of it. In fact, upon arriving in Rome, the first thing our group did was to find a restaurant and order pizza. Trouble was, no one but our guide spoke the language and the men-folk in our group weren’t going to ask for help, no-siree-bob, they could handle it all on their own, thank-you-very-much . . . so they ordered what they thought was an extra-large pepperoni pizza . . . but when the waiter brought it to the table . . . it was covered in spicy-hot ‘pepperoncini’ – HAH! What I learned on that trip is that when it comes to pizza, it’s no-holds-barred in Italy – including potato, peppers, fennel, olives, fish and everything in-between – fabulous!
