The Easiest Way To Eat Pizza

It was one of those Friday nights that my husband and my oldest son were going to be hanging out at home alone.

I had plans with some friends of mine, and the twins were going to spend the night at a friend’s house. I suggested to them that they could order out pizza, but we had just had takeout a few days before that. My husband curl of his lip and wrinkle of the nose when I made the suggestion told me that it wasn’t something that he was interested in doing. I was going to have to come up with something better than delivery or freezer pizza. The problem was, I wasn’t going to have a whole lot of time to make anything, and I know that my son is so picky my husband was going to have a hard time getting him to eat.

This recipe from Great Grub, Delicious Treats had never been done before, but I was waiting for a reason to make it. This seemed like the perfect time to give it a fair shake.

It went together really easily and it smelled so good I almost wanted to stay home and eat with them instead of going out… almost.

A mild heat sausage can be used if you don’t like yours too spicy.
