Q is for Quattro Staggioni

Quattro Staggioni. Four seasons. Frankie Valli. I’m here to tell you about my love for this band.

No, kidding, I promised you a recipe for pizza toppings last Saturday, and that’s what you’ll get (although if you do want to talk about the band, I’m always up for it). So Quattro Staggioni is one of the most popular toppings, probably because it has so many yum ingredients on there, which basically means that you have four pizzas in one!

Mushrooms, artichokes, black olives (more about that here) and ham. Deliciousness all over the place. Listen to Verdi’s Four Seasons if you want to get in the mood, he probably dedicated it to this stunning pizza (he didn’t).
