Weirdest pizza experience yesterday:
Ordered a vegetarian pizza.
Normal veg pizza means all grilled veggies toppings: bell peppers, zucchinis, tomatoes, eggplants, etc.
Received the pizza. It was topped with beets. I kid you not. Beets. Also, covered in mozzarella.
Since it was already late, and I was hungry, my reaction was just "F*, I'll just eat it".
1/10 - will never order again.
@ParadeGrotesque either that or tell them no beets next time. That does seem like a weird pizza topping..
I see what you did there.
(Plot twist: I don't digest beets very well. Which is why I am typing this on my phone, in a very private room).
You should leave a review somewhere as a warning to other vegetarians. I would flip out hard.
@ParadeGrotesque WTF? :flan_gobsmacked:
Have to wonder how someone at the pizza place thought that was a good idea.
@ParadeGrotesque Oh, NOES! Until now I thought the worst you could do was Veggie Pizza with "Gemüse Allerlei" (a *cough* classic frozen mix of broccoli, cauliflower, peas and carrots which, because of its tasteless uniformity, is probably the main reason many german kids hate veggies...)
@mc @ParadeGrotesque @publius Every #beer that is brewed according to the german #Reinheitsgebot (all #Munich beers are) should be considered at least as vegan friendly, since the only ingredients allowed are water, barley and hops.
Some of those however might not count as vegan according to stricter standards (i.e. no involvement of animals in the whole production process in any way whatsoever), as manure is used quite often as a fertilizer around here.
I personally draw the line there, but as you say growing barley isn't necessarily vegan. There's a movement for "stockfree" agriculture, though, for example here: https://stockfreeorganic.net/
That's it. That's the story. Beets on pizza = double plus ungood.
Are you implying I write long winded toots? Guilty as charged!
@ParadeGrotesque Not at all. In the toot you said it was toot 1 of 10, so I am waiting for the other 9.
That was the grade given to the pizza.
On second thought, that should have been a straight zero.
@ParadeGrotesque Huh. I didn't know there was so much beet hate out there. When I see them on salad bars, I always grab some for my salad. Just had roasted beets (along with other veggies) with dinner last night. Done right. I think I'd quite like it.
I honestly don't mind beets. But I draw the line at cold beets on a hot pizza, covered with half molten mozzarella.
