My first full day in Paris, we biked over 30 kilometers. We went from the Farmer’s Market to brunch, to the canal and back again (vlog here). It was late and we were starving, and ended up at a pizza place in the 6th arrondissement.

I’m gonna be honest with you. I was going to write this whole big thing about this recipe and where its inspiration came from, but here’s the real story: carbs. Delicious, yummy, brain happiness inducing carbs. Inspiration comes from many places, but mostly it just
