Substitutions

Feel free to switch up the cheeses depending on what you have available. Try using pecorino instead of Parmesan or Fontina in place of mozzarella. Don’t be afraid to add any toppings you like to make the dish your own. Consider trying combinations like artichokes and spinach, figs, goat cheese, a drizzle of hot honey, or any other toppings appealing to you.
