Crust made from dough, and kneaded by hand;

The base of it all makes the rest so grand.

What once was thought deadly now brings delight,

As crimson tomato sauce covers each bite.

Salubrious cheese sliced to utmost perfection--

The wondrous taste that has earned my affection.

Topped with an array of fruit, veggies, or meat;

Deliciously seasoned to make it so sweet.

Baked to a tender crisp under oven fire--

This precise combination creates food that I desire.
