Mondays Finish the Story – March 30th, 2015 – Mum’s Pizza


Finish the story begins with:Pizza anyone?”

Mum stood at the kitchen door watching us move as a tsunami towards the pizza.

Mum’s pizzas left us as drooling idiots. She knew just the right amount of ingredients to put on them. She would wait until the house was full of pizza aroma before opening the oven and letting her cooking titillate our senses.

We sat around the table while mum sliced it up. There was always plenty, in fact we often received a second piece, which amazed us as mum cut very generous slices.

Mum would stand back and watch us devour her hard work with a contented look on her face.

One night after one of her pizza treats I looked back at the pizza tray realising it was still half full. Mum happy her six kids were fed had a smile on her face and giggled slightly as she cleared the table.

    I love homemade pizza! My son in law makes the most amazing teriyaki chicken pizza. It’s great to see a happy Mum after she’s fed her kids 🙂

  7. That was wonderful – everyone had their fill of pizza and the pizza plate was still half full. You make me so hungry for pizza reading this.

    I loved the magical element to this story. And what a great line – the kids descending on the pizza like a tsunami. Great visuals.

    The visuals are great, and there is something magical about that pizza tray.

    At home – I only eat pizza if it’s homemade.
    Once you have homemade – the other stuff is craptacular.

    I love the magical element you’ve woven into this! I think Mum’s had help from those fairies in your garden! Great description of the six kids advancing on the kitchen like a tsunami. My six used to do that, too. They could smell baking a mile away. Lovely story, Michael. 🙂

  14. I love your spin on the mundane 🙂 I make Pizza from scratch too but I use an epic heavy steel plate that I wish was auto refilling

    Thanks to Mum’s kitchen magic you have lunch for all the kids tomorrow! Great story – well told.

  17. I just had pizza I ordered a couple of days ago, and reading this, I’m now hungry for the homemade kind. Mom seemed to be making magic in the kitchen as well as pizza. Good story, well done, Michael. 🙂 — Suzanne
