I LOVE PIZZA TOO!!! After every abdominal surgery for endometriosis, I HAD to have a pizza right away. I mean , the first thing eaten after surgery! Skipped the crackers and jello and got delivery. Ate the entire pizza. I think I must've gotten the munchies from one of the meds they gave me. Hahaha
