Hey now, hey now this is what dreams are made of (thanks, Lizzie McG). Yes, your prayers have been answered and fulfilled in the most cheesy, carby, circular way possible. Growing up in Chicago means that I am no stranger to deep dish pizza, and occasionally, I can be quite the pizza snob. Therefore, when my mom texted me asking me to pick up ingredients for a pizza she was making, I was skeptical. Why not order in? However, when it finally came time for dinner, my trepidation was proved pointless. Don’t get me wrong, my mom is a good cook, but this spaghetti pizza frankenfood quickly became the #1 best thing ever made in her kitchen. Peep this recipe to find out why it rocketed to the top so quickly.
