Avril Lavigne talks pizza & Sunday roast

Avril Lavigne says there is a pizza named after her in her home town.

The singer, who was born in Napanee, Canada, says the pizza place where she used to hang out now pays tribute to her with a pizza.

“I’m a small-town girl and go home when I can, and the people there always look out for me. I think they’re proud that someone from there made it so big,” Avril said.

“There’s a pizza restaurant in the center that I used to go to when I was at high school, and they’ve turned it into kind of an Avril-themed place. There’s even a pizza named after me made from my favourite toppings: pepperoni, olives and mushrooms.”

Avril also revealed that she loves a good Sunday roast.

“I may be Canadian, but I cook the best Sunday roast,” she added.

“My mom cooked every night when I was growing up and one thing I picked up from her was roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Growing up, a lot of the mums I knew used to cook a British dinner. I love making little Yorkshires and getting them to rise perfectly. I like being domesticated. It’s my way of unwinding. After months of touring and promotion I just want to stay in and be normal. Going out shopping for groceries and cooking food is my way of chilling out. I like to have my friends around and entertain for them, cook up some Italian food and open a bottle.”
