Daddy Steve: The basil that Wyatt and Giancarlo planted this spring has done extremely well.
The boys really wanted to try it on homemade pizza.
Wyatt: Wow! Look how big it grew!
Giancarlo: We do have a green thumb after all.
So, we've been enjoying the flavor of fresh basil here at Gregoropolis. It's wonderful in a simple salad of chopped tomatoes and a splash of vinaigrette.
Wyatt: Yeah, I love pizza!
Giancarlo: Let's ask Gino if he'll help us.
Gino: Of course I know all about making pizza! After all, my name is Gino, isn't it?
Gino: The secret to great pizza is in the crust. First, you have to twirl it like this.
Giancarlo: How do you do that?!
Gino: Years of practice, amico
Gino: Okay, it's ready to bake. We'll top it with the basil after we take it out of the oven.
Giancarlo: To preserve the fresh flavor?
Gino: And now, finito!
Wyatt: It smells delicious!
Frank: >sniff, sniff< I smell pizza.
Giancarlo: It must be good if it woke him up!
