A Stir The Pots Post

One man’s pizza is anothers flammeküche.

by | Jun 29, 2009 | Pizza

As any regular reader of this blog might guess, pizza has always been a  favorite for me. It can be interpreted in so many way. And its derivative names comes in so many different languages! Here's my own addition to those pies and names. This pie is an off shoot of two cultural mainstays; a marriage of sourdough Neapolitan pizza with Alsatian ingredients of a flammeküche, a pizza with no borders!

This will be going to Zorra 1 x umrühren for her pizza BBD 2 year anniversary, viel spaße!(Got to join in the fun, because pizza is fun, isn't it?)
