Family Game Day Foodie: Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Giants

Only two games left and I've got big hopes for this weekend ! I think Terry Bradshaw had the BEST one liner of the season when he said, "The Giants are like opossums; they play dead at home and get killed on the road!"

So I'm cutting them a break and giving them one of their own home town dishes. PIZZA! It's a classic Neapolitan pizza for them with fresh mozzarella and oregano, but for the Cardinals, it's an all out Mexican FIESTA pizza pocket!
