White pizza (cauliflower, fennel & ricotta) + Italian stories
We have just left, what feels like our favourite place on earth. And it’s impossible to summarise our experience in Italy into a blog post, but I’ll try.
It’s our kind of place. We drove over 5,500 kilometres, met the most amazing people, ate so much food, learnt about so many traditional foods, caught trains and boats, hiked mountains, foraged food, went to too many markets to count…
It’s a place where people are generous and loving. If you are poor, you are rich, because you always have family and always have food. It functions in a style of organised chaos, and everything it does, it does with passion.
This recipe, is inspired by all of our many diverse Italian experiences, from the Southern food vendors of Puglia, to the charismatic cheese-makers of the North. It is full of bold flavours like caper, fennel and anchovies, subtle, sweet ricotta and bright, ever-present lemon. An awesome, balanced meal, full of vegetables, so quick and simple, and one of the tastiest pizzas we've ever eaten.
