It’s no secret that our family loves football. We try to watch it every chance we get. We love the big-time hits and the big-time plays. When the game is on the line, it’s exciting to see who steps up to become the game time hero. We love it when that one moment happens where the momentum of the game completely shifts. And it usually happens because of someone’s heroic efforts. And when that heroic moment occurs, the game is remembered as one for the record books.
The same is true with parties. Whether you’re tailgating or having a party at home to watch the big game, it doesn’t become memorable until the hero shows up with some amazing food. When we watched last week’s football games, we wanted to make it an amazing, memorable experience for the family. In order for that to happen, we needed some amazing, memorable food.
So I put on my hero cape and headed to our local Walmart.
I stocked up on soft drinks, chips and dip, pretzels and mini corndogs (per the kids’ request). I also stocked up on some Rising Crust DiGiorno pizzas. With a rollback price of $4.50 a pizza, it was a pretty fabulous price. I know my pizza. I spent several years working in the pizza industry. I know that you can’t possibly get a deal close to this when you order delivery. This is a great deal for a high quality pizza.
You might even say it was a heroic deal.

So I went straight to the frozen foods section at the back of the store and grabbed a Three Meat pizza for me and Aiden. For the girls, I bought a Four Cheese pizza. I also snuck in a Spinach Garlic Mushroom pizza for Christy. OK. I got it for myself, too. I had never had their Spinach Garlic Mushroom pizza before. Most people in my family think I don’t like mushrooms. And as a general rule, that’s true. But I really liked this pizza. Three Meat will always be my favorite, but I have to admit I was kind of looking forward to trying the mushroom and spinach pizza.
With a kitchen full of game time goodies we were finally ready for our football party. We couldn’t wait for Sunday afternoon. About 45 minutes before game time, I fired up the oven.
The end result was a hot, bubbly, amazing pie that would put most other pizzas to shame.
We had a great time watching football and eating some fabulous game time goodies. The day was full of heroes – on and off the field.
