Amy's Pizza Product Review!

So turns out, rice four pizza crust is a-OK by me. It really works as a thin crust. You expect a crispy, crumbly product. Amy's crust does not disappoint. It has a slightly buttery touch, I can just imagine how fantabulous that will be next time as a Hawaiian pizza!

Now, adequate praise given, I must say...you really need to doctor this pizza up topping's wise. I added fresh tomato, Canadian bacon and artichokes. Sprinkle-Sprinkle some oregano, thyme, basil, garlic and pepper and then you're talkin'! Don't skip this step! Trust me, all the buttery crust in the world alone won't fulfill your pizza cravings! Get creative! It's pizza night!

So, do you want to go see this guy's gangrene before or after dinner?

Call is strange. So very strange. That was a direct quote last night, I kid you not. I chose the former.

But here's the kicker, the entire time we were poking that nasty toe, I was thinking "Man, why did I pack pumpkin cupcakes, I would kill for artichokes right now" I might be losing it!
