For years, my son wouldn’t eat anything with bread. He loved crackers, but wouldn’t eat anything fried or breaded or just plain bread. Even when I toasted the bread, he refused to eat it. Until I introduced thin crust pepperoni pizza. Then he started being more open to the concept of bread! Which is why I absolutely love this recipe. Because he started loving pepperoni, I made this recipe hoping the pepperoni would entice him to eat chicken (another thing he would never eat).
Well, when they say moms are brilliant they really mean it. Having pepperoni in the meal absolutely made him try it, and love it! And now, I can serve this on hoagies or spaghetti and he’ll gobble it down. I like to serve this on noodles with alfredo as well, because it combines both red and white sauces to make a delicious symphony of flavors.
