The Pickled Heron‘s Owner/Chef Daniela D’Ambrosio: My paternal grandmother would always make us grandkids pizza whenever we went over, no matter why we were there. Easter dinner — rabbit, pasta and pizza. Christmas — seven fishes, pasta and pizza. Sleepover — coffee, cereal and pizza. She passed away a few years ago, and when we grandkids were helping my mom sort through some of her things, all I wanted to take home was her pizza pan. It wasn’t anything fancy — an $8 aluminum pizza pan you can get just about anywhere — but it was marred with every pass of her heavy hand guiding that pizza wheel to cut perfectly-even and delicious slices for us seven grandkids. I still use it to this day. Enjoy my Grandmother’s Homemade Pizza!
