Big Pizza Pie

Searching through CD back ups of data and found my answer to the question what was a big pizza pie a replacement for?
Answer: "Jerry Lewis even had a hand in altering the lyrics slightly - substituting ‘gefilte fish’ for ‘big pizza pie’and the song became Dean’s first million seller." (Notes from Tonight At Seven script for a feature on Today FM)

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's Amore - eye - pie but what rhymed with gefilte fish?

Some links to You Tube clips of the song, with lyrics

or to see Dean do the song in the movie The Caddy
