haha, as i wrote it down yesterday i was getting hungry to thinking about it. I had it for dinner last night and i really liked it althought a little warning for those trying to stay healthy, don't have your partner stand behhind you as you make it. When i was putting on the mozza he kept saying more cheese, more cheese, come on you know i like my cheese, come on more cheese.
The only thing i will do differently is add a bit of onion to it.
