Two Super Bowl Pizza Recipes In preparation for Super Bowl 2018 we cooked up two rival pizzas to go head to head in a Super Bowl Pizza Showdown. On the game day menu, we have created two pizzas that epitomize the iconic food from each state. A Philly Cheesesteak Pizza representing the Eagles vs. a Clam Chowder Pizza representing the Patriots.
