Pizza Pasta


There’s comfort food. And then there’s COMFORT FOOD. This, my friends, is the latter. It has carbs. It has cheese. It has flavor. Perfect for a cold evening. And it aims to please. You can layer in any pizza toppings you desire. Add in some green pepper, olives, onions, ham, mushrooms. So, not only is it comfort food but it is flexible, cater-to-your-every-need comfort food. It’s the BFF of foods! So, friends, get on your sweats, slippers, and oversize sweatshirt . . . ‘cause it’s time to hang with your BFF!
