My Happy Meal- The Pizza Bun

Tracy Dawn Brewer

Canton, Ohio, US


Growing up in Appalachia our family owned a pizza shop & convenience store. Grandma made the sauce and carried it to,the store every day. Grandpa made sure anyone could have a meal for a dollar. One dollar got you a soda, bag of chips and a slice of pizza or a pizza bun. Pizza buns are hamburger buns with mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce and pepperoni...microwaved for one minute wrapped in wax paper. Back then, as a high school student, you had to leave the school for lunch, the cafeteria was too small to feed everyone. These were consumed by so many kids during my time in the 80’s! People still talk about them. My kids love them...and the grands will too, soon!
