The Peanut Butter & Jelly contains, well, just peanut butter and jelly, but it’s topped with a unique Panko bread crumb layer before being baked as well.

Tarantosaurus Party Pizza
In terms of the ingredients used, this is a pretty standard pie. What sets it apart, however, is its size. Coming in at a massive 29”, this is not a pizza you’ll want to try to take on by yourself. At $55, it also might make a bit more financial sense to tackle this one with a group.
