It’s no secret that Mariah Carey can sing. And her role in Precious proved she can act. But according to her husband, Nick Cannon, her talent doesn’t stop there.

“Mariah’s a great cook,” he tells PEOPLE. “She likes to make fun dishes.”

The couple, who will celebrate their second anniversary on April 30, often turn meal-making into quality time.

“We like to make little pizzas together,” says Cannon, 29. But despite their high-end taste in clothes and cars – Carey received a custom pink Porsche from her husband for her 41st birthday last month – their culinary creations are surprisingly un-gourmet.

“You know, the pizzas with the English muffins and the mozzarella? We do that a lot,” says Cannon, who currently hosts a morning radio show on New York’s 92.3 NOW. The one ingredient that makes their pizzas unique: Mariah s marinara. “She makes her own sauce, brags her husband. She’s skilled like that.”
