Inspired by "Your Own Homemade Pizza" by Julia Child. I knew Julia Child as a fan and reader and then later on, as a culinary colleague. She once called me once to congratulate me on an article I did for Fine Cooking on making bread in the bread machine, saying, that since I was a professional baker, my feature made bread machines legitimate and validated home bakers wanting a bit of help in the kneading process. In a way, she said, I legitimized bread machines just as chefs made it ok to use food processors as part of the whole process of fine cooking. This pizza is influenced by a recipe in one of Julia Child's cookbooks. It is simple and simply fabulous.
