Pizza My Heart

OK. 2 things.

1. Pizza My Heart is an awesome movie. We watched it the other day on Netflix and it was SO cute! It is basically a twist on the classic Romeo and Juliet story about two Italian families - the Prestolanis and the Montebellos who have been at odds with each other for hundreds of years. It takes place in Verona, New Jersey, (as opposed to Verona, Italy like Romeo and Juliet) where the two families own competing Pizzerias. Gina Prestolani and Joe Montebello meet and fall in love. As to what happens - you will have to watch it for yourself to find out! I will tell you this though - sparks fly (literally!), hearts are won, broken, and mended, and lots and lots of delicious Pizza is made! If you want to find out more about the movie you can go to the International Movie Database:

I feel that I should also mention what a fun day that was when we watched the movie. It was very, very rainy, thanks to tropical storm Debby and we snuggled in with our computers, blankets, and coffee to watch it. It was so cozy  with the rain pouring outside and us all curled up inside! (Not to mention the movie was adorable!!) After we watched the movie, my mom made us waffles for lunch, which were delicious!! BUT, I have to say that despite how delicious the waffles were, what I REALLY wanted was pizza!! And not just any pizza but delicious homemade pizza!! Which brings me to my second point:

2. A couple weeks ago, we made some AMAZING homemade pizza!! It was rainy that day too, and homemade pizza was just the right thing. Kristi and Josh came over, and my Mom, Kristi, Hannah, and I all worked together to make these delicious pizzas. Each one was like a work of art! :)

I have been forgetting to ask my questions at the end of each post. So - here goes! :)

1. Is there a really cute movie you have watched recently?

2. Do you ever make homemade pizza? What are your favorite toppings to put on pizza?
      I like to put lots and lots of cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes, and black olives. Also, Italian Seasoning and
