We all have have those nostalgic foods from our childhood, be it homemade favorites or store-bought staples that became part of our food memories for eternity. In our house, it was sour cream and onion dip, and French bread pizza—the frozen variety, to be exact.

I have such vivid memories of opening the box, tearing open the plastic wrapper and sliding the frozen pepperoni-topped loaves onto a toaster oven tray. A short while later, I was crunching into the pizzas in all their cheesy, marinara-topped glory.
