This dish is wonderfully different. Is it southwest? Is it Italian? I don’t know, but it tastes so yummy and is completely comforting. And I’m normally not a fan of olives either. But there are some combinations and certain dishes where I do love olives. And this dish is absolutely one of them. …and on pizza.
