Happy Friday to you all! I hope you have had a great week and are able to take a rest to enjoy this Labor Day weekend!
In honor of this upcoming day to celebrate the American worker, I didn’t feel it would be very honorable if I labored in the kitchen for tonights dinner, I’m just doing my part as a good American. So, I went with my tastebuds wanting to indulge and dance and made a potato and rosemary pizza, and it was divine!
As can be seen above, this pizza has no marinara sauce, just olive oil, potatoes, onions, rosemary, basil and parmesan and mozzarella cheese, that’s it and thats perfecto! This style of pizza is quite common in Italy. The Rosemary steals the spotlight, as you have these flavors that complement each other almost monochromatically, if you get my drift. Then you get a bit of this herbaly rosemary and it just adds so much texturally and to the overall flavor of the potatoes and cheeses.
For those who don’t reside in the United States Labor Day is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer in the United States. It is recognized as a federal holiday.
Do make this pizza, it is very delicious and adds a bit of sophistication from the usual, you will like it! Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!
