It depends on what you mean. If you say, ‘my favorite food is noodles and pizza’, it means you like to eat noodles and pizza together, that you like to combine them into one ‘food item’. It’s like how people say, ‘my favorite food is biscuits and gravy’. The foods are paired and become a single dish.

But, I don’t think that is what you mean. I guess what you mean is, noodles and pizza are your top two favorite foods, that you like these two most, but you don’t know which one is highest. In that case you should say: ‘My favorite FOODS are noodles and pizza’. You have to say ‘foods’ because there are two (yes, food is usually uncountable, but not in this case).

Another thing, just to be clear. If you mean Italian noodles, you can use ‘pasta’ instead.
