Light House Pizzeria

Pizza and college go hand in hand. And if you are anything like our son, you like a smorgasbord of variety. Look no further.

Beyond turning the oven to 450 degrees, you just need to get the fixins on the counter and start assembling! These are easy and scrumptious any which way you like them.

Below are two personal favorites, but traditional combos are good too. Branch out. Let your taste buds live a little.
