To say that I adore Pizza is putting it mildly! Pizza is right up there with Prime Rib for me! I use Donya Marie’s Dark Chocolate Bloody Mary Mix to make my Marinara sauce which makes master pieces of my Lasagna and my Italian Sausage Fettuccini, soooooo, I figured I could do the same with my pizza by using the same sauce, and I did! This is Pizza perfected. The sauce makes it delectable! Enjoy.
