So, it is no doubt that Pizzas are a hot favourite among today’s youngsters! No birthday party is complete without those pizza boxes in the house, or if you have friends like me, all you need on a birthday is a pizza and a beer! While my dad argues that it’s just bread and meat, I beg to differ! It’s so much more than that! Its lie your foodgasm! It is hot cheesy Mozarella, topped with juicy meat and fresh jalapenos and olives, baked to perfection! I am sure all will agree!
