    Lisa Pizza's Note:

    The picture says it all! This beauty not only looks impressive, but tastes fresh and wonderful. The cornmeal in the crust adds a nice element, different than the regular pie crust. (Prep time includes chilling periods).

      this was so de'light'ful after a heavy vegatarian hot pot I'd made for a veggie pal of ours. None leftover for later, served with a dollop of marscapone whisked with a dash of cointreux (?sp)
