    The expression has NOTHING to do with football. The length of the cartridge belt for the machine guns on a SPITFIRE fighter plane was 27 feet long and if the pilot emptied it on an opponent he was said to have given him the whole nine yards. - 9/26/16

    That's the most unappetising pizza I've ever seen or eaten. Bad, very bad. - 9/26/14

  • Something's not quite right about the recipe. I believe there's an extra step listed for spreading the pesto and baking for 10 minutes. The total time for baking is supposed to be 20 minutes, so 10 minutes for the pizza dough and 10 minutes with pesto and spinach mixed together. - 9/27/14
