  1. This looks great, and I love green olives. Will have to see if I can get my mom to cook this for me! 😀

  2. Makes me hungry just looking, but I’m pretty sure my Italian mother-in-law would slap me senseless if admitted to adding ketchup to red sauce…but it does sound good, the pictures are pretty convincing, and what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her–or me.

  3. Homemade, not supermarket, pizza is a weakness. I’ll try this.

  4. I must try this recipe!
