Yeah, we're talking food again.  This time?  Pizza in the 815!

In one of our latest stories, Mamma Mia's officially closed their doors for good and we had absolutely no idea they left!  Man, my parents used to order from Mamma Mia's a lot in the summer when my sisters and I were all living at home.  My favorite to get there was a large cheese pizza with sausage, black olives, spinach, and mushrooms.

Well, since they closed I no longer can get my pizza fill, but there are plenty of other pizza joints in the Rockford area to find some greasy, delicious cheesiness!  They might even be the BEST in town.  You decide!
