I've had my local, New York, pizza place put both tuna and kebab (gyro) meat on a pizza before. If you frequent a non-chain pizza place, and you're friendly enough with them, they can do it for you. They usually have the ingredients anyway.

I mean in two separate pizzas, of course.

I've also had the pizza place make me a stacked pizza. Bake two pizzas, and then put them one atop each other.

/Yeah I know, I sound fat.

I hope subby's using the [SICK] in the way that today's extreme youth use it, because pizza is the perfect delivery system for any topping.

Day_Old_Dutchie: capt.hollister: nekom: I have a good friend in Sweden, they put tuna on theirs.  Doesn't sound horrible, just weird.  Bone marrow though, that's horrible AND weird.

When we make home-made pizza I like putting tuna on mine, I use canned tuna in olive oil (canned tuna in water is pretty flavourless), it's perfect for pizza. Bone marrow ? I like bone marrow, it's neither horrible nor weird, so I'll be happy to try it.

Thanks for the idea.

Enriched with nourishing marrow-bone jelly.  Mmmmmm!


Nothing like a glass of refreshing dog's milk after a fish and marrow pizza. Full of goodness, full of vitamins, full of marrowbone jelly, dog's milk.  Plus it has the advantage that it tastes exactly the same when it goes off as when it's fresh.

Pizza can't really be done wrong. It's very versatile.

But that shiat aint right.

FTABritish pizza: from bone marrow to Thai curry
Boundary-pushing pizzerias are serving toppings that would make a Neapolitan swoon - and not in a good way. But some of them are delicious. Would you order a doner kebab pizza?


Thus again proving that when a headline is a question, the answer is "no."

UK's had Pizza for years.  The only thing is, its been sauceless and they've been calling it rarebit.

Nightsweat: Did they just dis Hawaiian pizza?  The pineapple only works with ham/canadian bacon, but it works there.


It's mathematically impossible to "dis" Hawaiian pizza, assuming "dis" means "give it less respect than it deserves."

Sigh.... I guess it's time to post this again:

Things that are good on pizza:
vegetables
mushrooms
meat from a mammal
cheese
tomatoes (regardless of whether you think it's a fruit or not) (including tomato sauce)

Things that you should be shot for even suggesting putting on pizza:
fruit
eggs
anything that ever swam or flew

Things that you should be shot for arguing about:
whether a tomato is a fruit

Have you ever considered joining Orthodox Judaism? They also have strong opinions on what is good or abominable to eat though their categories are much more refined than yours.

That would be redundant.  I'm already in a Fark food thread.

EvilMonkeyBoy: Mock26: For all the Chicago Farkers out there, if you get the chance, go to VOLO and order their bone marrow.


New to Chicago, will definitely try this weekend.


Be sure to make reservations.  Website.

Denying yourself some fine eating experiences, there, young man.  All edible fauna and flora has it's place on a pizza.
Btw, what's your position on herbs and pizza ?

long story short:  I ate British pizza.  It sucked.

You can put almost anything on almost anything else and I'm generally happy to try it.

Just don't call it "pizza" if it isn't pizza.  Use your imagination and come up with a new name.  Call it a "hollister" if you like.

On the subject of odd food, anyone who has never had oxtail soup needs to go find some.  Or make it.  It's awesome.

The Italian side of me tells me I can absolutely call it a pizza. You see, the Italian word pizza originally derives from the Neapolitan word for kneading and flattening, which is itself related to the Greek word pita. In other words, what defines a pizza is the flatbread (a proper pizza is made with a very thin crust), not the toppings.

He had me at his opener: "This creator of this restaurant should be thrown in jail."
Yes, that's no wishy-washy, sitting on the fence, kind of opinion.

I wonder what his Fark handle is...

Pizza kebab is the best: doner meat, jalapenos, chillis and red onions.

I would venture to say that anything you have to cook in advance before you put it on the pizza does not belong on pizza. Except for bacon, because it'll never get crispy enough on its own in the oven. But other than that, if you're precooking an ingredient before you put it on there, it probably doesn't belong on there. And yes, I realize that this means no more sausage or hamburger pizza, which is what you heathens get.

As far as British "cuisine" goes, from what I can tell, it's not like they don't have good ingredients, or good ideas, or whatever. It's that nobody in the country knows how to farking cook. I'm no wizard in the kitchen or anything, but I know how to make fried chicken where the skin is crispy but not burnt, and the meat is juicy but not raw. This is apparently a mystery to anybody in ole Blighty. I've never had so much burned food served cold in my entire life.

ciberido: Things that you should be shot for arguing about:
whether a tomato is a fruit


Heh. And, I love how that's the only one that people harp on, completely ignoring all the other culinary vegetables which are also biological fruits, exactly like the tomato: peppers, squash, cucumbers, etc... They're all fruits in exactly the same way a tomato is, but no one throws a damn hissy fit every time someone refers to them as a vegetable (which they all also are, along with the goddamn tomato)!

It's one of those things they heard once long ago, and have squirreled away in their brains and then trot out as some kind of trivia "gotcha" to play, thinking they're correcting people, when in fact they're just being totally stupid...

We create artificial categories with their attendant descriptions and proceed to try and fit the world into them. Evolution, or Mother Nature, or FSM (bless his noodly appendages), meantime, creates life with whichever characteristics work best, rudely ignoring our carefully constructed categories. A tomato is neither a fruit nor a vegetable, it's a tomato. And it goes very nicely in salads and on pizzas.

capt.hollister: A tomato is neither a fruit nor a vegetable


Well, rather, it's sort of both, really... It's a fruit from a botanical perspective, in that it's the fleshy, seed-bearing part of a flowering plant... But, it's not a fruit from a culinary perspective, since it's not sweet and is not commonly eaten in the same way as other fruits... However, it's definitely a vegetable from both a botanical and culinary perspective...

In common parlance, most people only talk about the culinary meanings of the two words... Except when it comes to tomatoes for some damn reason! Then, they'll beat you over the head with the fact that it's a botanical fruit, and try to claim that means it can't be a vegetable... While ignoring all the other commonly accepted vegetables that also are botanical fruits, but no one ever questions the vegetablehood of...

"fruit" and "vegetable" are human definitions. Nature does not stick to human definitions. A tomato is a tomato. A pepper is a pepper. We like to categorize things, but those categories have no intrinsic existence.

While I agree with everything you just said, I have no idea what the point is... Yes, we humans defined the terms, but it doesn't change the fact that the items in question clearly fall under the scope of those terms as we've defined them...

The problem in the case being discussed isn't that we silly humans have unsuitable definitions for the categories, and that the tomato trancends them somehow... It's not like it's a particularly special botanical fruit; it's just a perfectly regular one that easily falls under our definition of one... And, like many other botanical fruits, we happen to use it as a culinary vegetable rather than a culinary fruit... This is not a strange and unique situation... But, many people mistakenly think that it is...

Perhaps things wouldn't confuse people so much if we used totally different terms for either the botanical categories or the culinary categories, rather than sharing "fruit" and "vegetable" between them both... I say go with Latin for the botanical terms: fructus and vegetabilis, and leave the common terms for culinary use... Then there would never have been any confusion: a tomato is a fructus, but it's a vegetable...
