I can't believe I am posting this one. Where is the tag for "Warning Label"?
Oh, but seriously we only make this a couple times a year. It is very delicious but my convictions only allow indulging like this once in awhile. lol
My husband has been making this dish since he was a teenager and he loves it!!! It is one hearty dish and will fill your stomach very quickly.
Well, if you venture to make this I do hope you enjoy your "Pizza Lasagna".

I entered Tony's Pizza Lasagna into a contest that our local TV station WKBN 27 is having and he got picked as one of the winners. Today, January 30th 2013 he went to have his segment taped and it will air on Monday Feb. 4th for the Early Morning Show. He also won a really nice gift package too. We both had alot of fun and since it was for Valentine's Day we topped it with pepperoni's cut into hearts.

This was after he was finished with videotaping his segment and they asked if I would be in the photo too.
