★~ Pizza With Everything Day (Except Anchovies):
Another pizza day? Lets start with Vickie’s recipe for Pizza Pot Pies, that I posted about last year. Pizza pot pies can be made with the toppings of your choice with or without anchovies. I know, some of you don’t like anchovies, some of you love them, and I seem to recall they remind someone of their parents.
In case you are wondering why you’re discouraged from adding anchovies to your pizza it is because the saltiness of the anchovies can mask all of the other delicious pizza flavors. Which is a good enough reason for me to skip them.
