Pizza Haiku Contest. In no particular order, they are ...

Steaming strands of cheese
Ripe tomatoes, plump and sweet
That’s a pizza pie

No one will agree
Red, white sauces. Meat? Cheese? Crust?
Ev'ry slice is sublime.

Red sauce, meat and cheese
Topping the thin circle of dough
Heaven in the round

Anticipation fills me
The first taste is best

Coal oven goodness
Blackened crust, tomatoes, cheese
Eight perfect slices

Hot triangle, drip
A river of juice on lips
Licked clean by my tongue

Dry beneath the warming lights -
