What makes Papa John's Chicken Carbonara Pizza a nice movie match for TaDi!

As a movie fan boy,  I know food should always be part of the mix.  For a fan boy, a movie without food is incomplete!  So to make every film truly enjoyable, my resident movie match are either burger and fries or chips / popcorn or pizza!  Of course that comes with a soda.

However in the movie premier nights I attend, there's usually a buffet or cocktails offered by our much loved film studios.  But still, I need that something to munch on while watching the film.  But really, I look for something light, yet really tasty, as in like a real food!  I know you know what I mean.  But I don't have a much of a choice.  I always end up with something heavy and sinful or something light and dull.
