Well if you like “The Works” pizza why not make into a lasagna? I do and it’s a great take on one of my  favorite Pizza’s. And if you’re really lucky you have access to Sam’s Pizza Sauce and Brother’s pepperoni and salami for a grand slam. This super easy recipe is flavorful, decadent, cheesy and awesome for a Saturday night supper. So dig out of your aprons and let’s make some lasagna!
