A Slice of Heaven • Nothing brings people together like breaking bread, especially if that bread is flat, round, and topped with mounds of fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes, and—wait for it—truffles. For this month’s cover, Oprah captured the spirit of summer entertaining with a pizza party in her Santa Barbara backyard (before the onset of social distancing). Once the crew got the perfect shot, they were ready to dig in to the piping-hot edible prop. Of course, the hostess with the mostest wanted to amp up the culinary zing for her guests, so she got a little, shall we say, truffle-happy. “Now, this is not your average pizza,” she said. “Enjoy!”
