Pizza might just be one of God's greatest gifts to humans. The quintessential food of every college student diet. It sustains us when we've run out of any practical breakfast food. It's there for us when we're drunk. It's accessible.  

But next time you're craving some of that cheesy goodness, assuming you're not too hungry, try your hand at a pizza pot pie. It takes just half an hour, and I promise you won't regret it.
