    We used to buy Boboli pizza breads, drizzle w/ olive oil and spread w/ Italian tomato paste, then make our own individual favorites w/ assorted toppings.. It was  fun for families (kids and adults) and friends. The salad was also part of a the group effort. It's more fun to eat a custom creation!
