" This delicious salsa made with fresh kiwis, apples and berries is a sweet, succulent treat when served on homemade cinnamon tortilla chips. Enjoy it as a summer appetizer or an easy dessert." - annie
"Someone who made this recipe definitely knows a thing or two about good pizza! I've come across so many recipes that say they are pizza sauce when it's really some variant of marinara that you would put on pasta...they are not the same. This sauce is thick, robust, and full of flavor and based on the pizza I've had in New York, it is the real deal! My go to recipe from now on!" - dan w.
