Hello to all,

Let's say you want to say you really love pizza in general. Does this sentence work? :

I can't imagine m life without pizza and I have pizza twice a week. Actually, I can kill for pizza.

If this doesn't work, how can I correct it?

    Hmm, sounds a bit like an advertisement. You're willing to kill people if you're paid in pizza. We do say 'I could kill for (a/some pizza)(right now)', but that's more a spontaneous urge for it. We don't turn that into a habitual urge 'I can kill'.

    "In fact, I would kill for pizza" would work, as long as it was understood that you were joking.
    I can't imagine m life without pizza and I have pizza twice a week. In fact, I would kill for pizza.

    IS that okay? I know it's humor. I don't want to suggest I have a craving for a pizza in one moment. Generally speaking I would kill for pizza.
