This pizza-riffic post is dedicated to my mom. She’s the biggest pizza lover in Saskatoon! Family Pizza should probably know her by topping. This weekend it’s her birthday, so I know she’ll be getting a slice or two to celebrate. From the abundance of pizza joints currently open in Saskatoon, mom obviously isn’t the only ‘za lover in town.
