Inspiration:
My home state of Pennsylvania is quite famous for its cheese steak and porchetta sandwiches. I adore them both, so decided to combine their flavors in one harmonious pizza. “Wit” three cheeses, broccoli raab, fennel and onions this pizza along with my favorite Bogle Chardonnay will take Philly by storm.
