    Just tried a new pizza place here in Naples called Truly Organic. It's apparently the first pizza shop in the US to be certified organic - every single ingredient is "organic." Had delivery and it was outstanding - very flavorful and fresh.

    I wonder if they are irritated with the latest reports that organic is really no better than regular ingredients? We've got a Naked Pizza here that I would love to try. Their claim to fame is "stark naked, no freaky chemicals".

    Anybody?

    Never heard of it I'd see if there were coupons or special deals and check them out. OR look for reviews on Yelp or Google.

    We have a pizza place that does a gluten free crust that I'd like to try, especially when my mom is in town, since she's gluten free. I'm just worried that it will be BAD and then we'll be stuck with a crummy pizza.....or we'll have to just eat the toppings off of it!

    Our Papa Johns isn't bad where I live. They have always been hot when I got them and $5.00 for a large isn't bad. I am not a big pizza eater but the kiddos like it.

    The only pizza I can tolerate these days other than homemade is a local chain (in operation since 1957) called Mamma's Pizza. They're expensive - the large European Classic (pesto, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms and feta) goes for about $20 - but oh, so good. Thin crust, flavourful ingredients, plenty of garlic - yummy. We tried various chains on the road through the states and I honestly can't think of one that wasn't absolutely revolting. And I love pizza nearly as much as I love my husband and my cats. But the quality of the sauce, the most important ingredient as far as I'm concerned, at each of them was just disgusting. Barely a step above something from a jar from a convenience store.

    I've never seen a large Papa John's for $5! The least I've ever seen it for is $13.

    I'm sorry it's Little Caesers. Guess you can tell how much I don't buy pizza. We have a chain that is just local Mazzio's that isn't bad.

    Whew! I thought I was getting "done wrong", and I am not the woman they want to be starting something with!

    Does anyone have a tried & true recipe for ossobuco? We experimented with combining a couple very similar recipes, and while the meat turned out perfectly, the sauce and veggies were kind of lacking in flavor. My classic Julia Child book suggests orange and lemon zest, but I *hate* citrus with most proteins, and even that aside, it's body that was lacking to the sauce.

    I've never made osso bucco, so I don't have a recipe for you. Could it need more wine? In my experience, wine always makes things richer. Maybe a richer stock?
