This morning, in the aftermath of a particularly lovely party, I awoke and made myself a nice plateful of pepperoni pizza rolls.  Not only are they delicious but, like a real pizza, they’re even better the next day.  In my college days, cold pizza for breakfast was a tradition of payday weeks (mostly because a good size delivery pie would give me several days worth of food) and even today, my lunchbox will often be a slice of pizza and a bottle of water, which represents all the food groups.  (As Gen Xers, my wife and I don’t know about this “pyramid” thing the kids today are into.)  My child, however, thinks that I’m crazy for my wild Italian breakfast ways, leading to today’s deep-dish query…

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. The idea is so brilliant that it cycles past greatness into some category we mere mortals cannot yet comprehend.

    But then again, I’m probably biased as I am a person who never gets sick of pizza in all it’s various forms and has had many, many variations of pizza for breakfast through the years. Cold leftover pizza, cheap tiny microwave pizza, pizza rolls, breakfast pizzas, etc.

    The other night, I ate an entire bag of pizza rolls by myself while watching The Walking Dead mid-season finale. Sadly, there were none left the next day to test your theory. :( Maybe next time, I’ll save a few…
