Describing pizza – by 4D

Pizza is as yummy as lasagna and chocolate. It is as hot as fire and as spicy as pepper. Pizza is life. It is religion. Pizza is heaven. It is round like a car tyre and as flat as a table top. The sauce is as red as lava. The mushrooms are as slim as a stick and green capsicum is alien fingers. The pieces of pepperoni are like clown noses. The cheese is as stretchy as slime and sticks to the roof of your mouth like glue. The oven is a desert of hot air and the pizza box is a jail delivering foo to my door.
