She told Live! magazine: ''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. There's a pizza restaurant in the centre 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 says food is quite important in her life and as well as pizzas, she also enjoys cooking a traditional British Sunday roast dinner. She said: ' may be Canadian, but I cook the best Sunday roast.
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.'
