The Pizza Del Pastore. Beautiful day this morning, sun shining even if the temperature was quite stiff. I left home to make my ten thousand daily steps along the paths in the countryside. To my surprise a few hundred meters from my house I saw a huge flock of sheep. I approached and was greeted by these two huge dogs that have awed me preventing me to approach further the flock of sheep. Fortunately the pastor immediately called them though with a whistle. We immediately socialized, both with dogs than with the intent pastor in the milking herd. As soon as he finished the long milking work immediately began to produce a delicious fresh cheese and immediately after the ricotta. Finally took me in his cellar where jealously preserved products of pastoralism prepared in the preceding days.
I purchased a fabulous ricotta and pecorino cheese.
From there was born the pizza project today:
