Literary Snacks: My Brilliant Friend + easy tortilla pizza

Published by Laura on

Our Literary Snack this week is Elena Ferrante’s novel, My Brilliant Friend, paired with an easy tortilla pizza. The first in a series of four, Ferrante’s popular novel follows the friendship of two women, from their childhood all the way to old age. It’s an introspective, philosophical novel about the nature of friendship and growing up. Even though this recipe is far from a traditional Italian-style pizza, it’s quick and delicious, and the flavours can still transport to Naples where the novel takes place.

This recipe is adapted from Serious Eats. The full recipe is available here:
