Model Answer:
I love foods, and who doesn’t! But, of course, not everybody likes the same types of foods. For example, somebody may like fish, while many others can’t even take the smell of it! Some may prefer fast food while many others just avoid them like plagues on some health grounds!

Talking about fast foods, I just love eating pizza. In fact, if my memory serves me well, pizza has been one of my favourite foods since my early university days, and there wasn’t a week for me in those university years that had passed by without eating at least 2 or 3 pizzas.  Of course, I don’t eat them as much as the time when I was younger, but still, I like to enjoy them as often as I can without putting too much strain on my stomach and heart health.  

By the way, in the country, where I live, pizzas, like many other fast food items, have become rather common and popular in recent years, especially, in and around the big cities, where mostly young folks flock into the fast-food restaurants in dozens every day so that they can get a bite of those freshly-made pizzas that are made of yeast dough and topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and a variety of other ingredients.

To make this pizza, one first needs to prepare Pizza-crust (essentially a flat and round bread) of about 10 inches (25 cm in diameter).  Then, cheese, tomato sauce and a number of ingredients (like meat, olive, onions, bell peppers and mushrooms, depending on one’s taste and preferences) are spread evenly on the crust before heating it in an oven for about 20 to 30 minutes. 

Anyway, pizza is one of my favourite foods, mainly because of the heavenly taste it provides to my appetite. I like this food also because I can eat it hot or cold, whether I am busy working or driving on the street. After all, pizza is the food for all seasons and all occasions!
