O pizza, your tomato sauce
tastes like dreams.
The peppers, the mushrooms—oh,
I like those!

O my pizza, then you go in the oven,
it is more than dreams.
It’s as beautiful as a rose blooming.

Your taste is like art class.
Imagine the beautiful red paint as the
tasty delicious tomato sauce.
Imagine the smooth clay
as the amazing mushrooms.
