Hi it’s Leslie.
More and more people are having what they call a friends-giving celebration. That’s where you invite your friends over for a Thanksgiving meal. This is especially popular with young adults, who might not enjoy hanging out with their politically insensitive drunk uncle. My impression has been that people will have Thanksgiving with their family, and Friendsgiving with their friends. In fact, I myself am going to two different celebrations, on two different days.
Anyway, surveys show that pizza is a much more popular menu item than turkey at a Friendsgiving celebration. So, DiGiorno has come up with a Thanksgiving Pizza. This pizza starts with a thick crust and has sweet potatoes, gravy, turkey, green beans, cranberries, two different kinds of cheese, and crispy onions. Thank goodness they left off the pumpkin pie. I don’t know that I would call this pizza, but it has become wildly popular.
This actually sounds okay to me, except the gravy. What can I say, I’ve never been a fan of gravy. I know, I could substitute some buttery mashed potatoes. But I digress.
What do you think of this Thanksgiving Pizza idea? Would you eat it at a Friendsgiving? Would you eat it for Thanksgiving? By the way, if you’re up for it, you can make your own. You’ll find plenty of recipes online.
