pizza long johns

This is an old recipe from my high school days. When these were served in the cafeteria it was always the busiest day. The aroma would loft through the school so you knew you had to get in line early. I have been making them ever since. They do freeze well but I very seldom had a chance to do so because they are cobbled up so quickly.
