Pizza Meets the Farm

I feel grilled Vegetable Pizza may not have started in a fancy kitchen. It may have begun somewhere in the countryside, where life is uncomplicated. Just visualize, a wooden table covered with all kinds of fresh vegetables, an old-fashioned grill nearby, and a traditional pizza oven warming up. May be that is where the story began.

Anyways, in the countryside, people have always been creative. When pizza lovers wanted something different, they always had an idea. They mixed the classic Italian pizza with the charm of a countryside barbecue. It was a way to honor the cooking traditions of the land while making something completely new.
