When I have learned that Joey, of 80 Breakfasts is hosting the 17th edition of HHDD (Hay Hay its Donna Day) with pizza as a theme; I was really excited to join. Not only because I wanted to show my own "pizzanality" but simply because I was never familiar with Donna Hay. (I know where on earth did I come from :-) ) I have been hearing a lot good reviews about her, her foodstyling and her recipes. But never had really the opportunity to try. And now is the time I try it myself. A perfect day for Dhanggit to try Donna's Pizza.
