I really wish I had a digital camera...I would have taken a picture of this. It was absolutely picture perfect. I had to call DH in to see it before I cut it to serve! I just wish it had tasted as good as it looked. The texture was marvelous, but the combination of the tomatoes and basil with the cornmeal in the crust just didn't strike my fancy. :-( I will try this again, but will use a different crust next time. Thank you for sharing this recipe Inez!
