Vinyl Sayings Wall Plates

So, this project all started because I can never remember what order to put the pizza toppings in:)
We love making home-made pizza!  Sometimes I make my own crust, sometimes we get the dough from the deli section of the grocery store - but we love putting all our own toppings on.
One of my favorite recipes is this one from Rachael Ray
Anyways - when I am making pizza with toppings like pepperoni and ham, I used to spread the sauce, then put the toppings on before all of the cheese. 
Well, I was making pizza for my dad one day, and he said, "What are you doing?!"  I was making a serious pizza stacking mistake!
See, my dad worked in a pizza parlor when he was in college, and the correct way to stack a pizza, is to put the sauce, then the cheese, then the toppings.  Who knew??
Believe it or not, I liked it better!  And when we broil the top of the pizza, it gets just the right kind of crispy.

But, every time I go to make pizza, I have to sit and think for a minute...Which comes first?  The toppings or the cheese?
To fix this, I decided to make instructions, and hang them right on my wall :)
Now, I'll never forget what order to stack a pizza in!
And, since a single plate on the wall would look lonely, I made another to keep it company. 
I have always thought this saying was kindof funny.
Nice, quick, cheap project.  The plates were just a few dollars at China Fair - a store I recently discovered here in New England.  I have a feeling I will be going back!  Great place to get kitchen crafting paraphernalia.
