When I was in Ecuador volunteering in orphanages the kids would do theses little two word chants that were so adorable. They would use any 2 words, names, places, food you name it. I don’t know if they had ever had pizza before but somehow “Pizza Pizza” turned into one of our chants! So….every time I have pizza I think of those cute kids and sing our little “Pizza Pizza” song in my head.
