Homemade Pizza with Green Pepper, Meatballs & Pineapple Chunks | Coraline

“…and even though it was homemade by her father (so the crust was alternatively thick and doughy and raw, or too thin and burnt), and even though he had put slices of green pepper on it, along with little meatballs and, off all things, pineapple chunks, Coraline ate the entire slice she had been given. Well, she ate everything except for the pineapple chunks.”

-Coraline, Neil Gaiman
