Garlic. Tomato. Cheese. Crust. Italian Sausage. Onions. Gooey-stringy. Texture. Taste. Comfort.
All of the above give you a snapshot into why I love pizza. What I don’t love about pizza: the way it makes me feel. I can’t eat it as much anymore and I will save the rarities for grace pizza.
I still love the flavors of pizza so I want to incorporate those flavors into a more healthy dish for my family. This was gobbled up by my men and me one evening for dinner.
