Fulham F.C. ~ Johnny Hayneselnut pizza

Introduction: John Norman “Johnny” Haynes (17 October 1934 – 18 October 2005) played his entire career of 18 years at Fulham, playing 657 games and scoring 157 goals between 1952 and 1970. Still a club record.

He was the first player to be paid £100 a week, this was in 1961. And Pelé is quoted as saying of Haynes, he was the “best passer of the ball I’ve ever seen”.  Hence you will need napkins for this pizza as it distributes itself everywhere.
