Sweet Red Onions Of Tropea One of Italy’s prized onions, it’s super sweet, and has the added bonus ,the lowest lacrimal factor, the onion which dose not make you cry.A great bonus, don’t you think, slicing onions without burning eye’s.
It’s grown in region of Calabria, Italy , along the coastline between Capo Vaticano and Vibo Valentia.
It has a slightly elongated shape and a deep red, wine color. The onion itself is not only famous in Italy, but is known all over Europe for its unusually sweet and mild flavor.
Pita breads are so versatile I find them a great success and lighter than a pizza base.Heat up the grill on your oven.Quantity here depends on how many pita bread pizza’s you’re making, I thought it be easier if I work on one and you’ll be able to double it accordingly.
