Went a little too hard on the stuffing last night? Had a bit too much L-tryptophan? There's not much more awkward than waking up, realizing you're not alone, and finding yourself in bed with a food baby. Don't make things weird. This pizza is the perfect meal to cure those feelings of fullness and regret. It's basically a little bit of everything from yesterday (including dessert) plus more delicious carbs. The hair of the dog never tasted so good. Leftovers just got a whole lot better.
