As is usual for our completely inefficient grocery store visits, our ideas escalated from aisle-to-aisle.
By the time we hit the fridges for pre-made pizza dough (*cue groans from the pizza dough enthusiasts*), Matt had an epiphany...we had to do two layers of dough to pay homage to the damn near unnecessary middle bun of the McDonald's Big Mac.

After cooking, we hit the pie with some shredded lettuce and more sauce...and most importantly, LOOK AT THAT SESAME SEED CRUST:
And for the first time ever...we collectively get to say "here's a slice of a Big Mac"
Party on, dudes. Party on.
