Chuck, what an effort! I love the theme with the G's in Wrigley this weekend - I thought I was looking at the Giordano's webpage until I saw the guy wielding the machete, and then I knew it was just you doing your thing in the backyard!

Lovely looking pie!
Very filling, I suppose, with all those toppings.
I think I need to get myself away from the idea that a pizza should be ready in a couple minutes...

Anyone that doesn’t like black olives has simply not developed their tastebuds fully yet! I have loved them since I was a kid.
I own that knife as well, though in its “Old Hickory” format. It came with walnut scales though, I’ll have to fix that...
Killer pie!

This is an easy pizza to make (once the dough is done) but it is a half hour cook time due to the low temperature (375 degrees)

Love that pizza. And black olives.

I had an aunt that used to give me 2 cans of black olives for Christmas.

You look dangerous.
