That is much less offensive than pineapple, and looks tastier.

The facial hair certainly screams, "I put arugula on pizza, while yelling about pineapple, without blinking an eye."

I'd eat a sheep's head on its own, but what happened to calling a novelty act meant for click-bait a novelty act?

I'll split the difference. I'll take the beer (7%? Yum!) and the sheepshead to gnaw on and they can take that salad covered bread disk and f*ck it up a hill.

Sheephead pizza is just your basic Foreign Queasine

In Terry Pratchett's Discworld book Jingo, Klatchians offer sheeps' eyes and similar disgusting things to foreigners who visit them. It turns out they don't actually eat these things but only do it to screw with tourists.

Of course, it's no surprise this ends up subverted when we get to the D'regs, because they were trying to fool the ever-suspicious Sam Vimes, who wasn't going to eat it no matter who found it offensive. He did light his cigar on a camel-dung fire, but he said it "improved the flavor".
Sam Vimes also later discovers that "vindaloo" roughly translates to "mouth scalding gristle for macho foreign idiots."

"The head itself is laced with a smoked chili barbecue sauce that plays up the animal's flavour - more than when it's traditionally been served for Thorrablot, the midwinter food festival celebrating Iceland's pagan history.
And that's because the sauce includes another juicy ingredient - sheep dung."

My grandmother tried to put her grey tongue in my mouth, but I didn't want it. Oh, wait. She would boil cow's tongue with pickling spice, and it had an odd aroma and looked disgusting. I don't want eyeballs. or brains or tongue, but the smoked BBQ jowls sound really good.

There was some article a year or two back talking about strange laborious food traditions, and how they didn't make sense to keep up the traditions as they took so much work.

... until you had periods of scarcity (crop failure, flooding that ruined fields, etc), and then the people who know how to convert potentially poisonous or less desirable stuff into food.

So food traditions can be a way to prepare ahead for famines ... but it's also like hazing in a fraternity

New Scandinavian Cooking has an episode where they talk about smoking foods with sheep dung and hay. Given the lack of wood, ding and hay were what they had. And according to Andreas Viestad, the flavor of the smoked food is actually pleasant and not of sheep dung.

k, that actually looks super tasty!

but it's NOT a pizza! it's like an open faced flatbread, a giant unopened pita pocket, or something, or an unfolded gyro!

PIZZA must, at a minimum contain a sauce (not always tomato based, but most of the time) and MELTED cheese. and i'm being GENEROUS with my definition. i've been in MANY skirmishes of the FARK PIzza Wars!

everything else is just a flatbread. perhaps an ultra amazingly delicious vegan roasted veg flatbread with an onion sauce, or that midwestern cold "veggie pizza" appetizer that i love and farkers love to hate (see below):

The other versions of it have tomato sauce and melted cheese. This one likely has it, but it's buried under all the kebab meat and fries. Or not.

exactly. and sometimes different foods share a name!

so, in FARK PIZZA THREADS, it behooves one to use a modern definition for a modern food! and talk about ROUGHLY the same food!

like you ate a DESSERT that had the term "pizza" in its name? cool. but not relevant to this thread, or ANY Pizza Wars thread i've EVER seen.

you know, like a chocolate hazelnut truffle is not a fungus?
a spanish tortilla is an omelette, a mexican one is a flatbread?
american biscuits and brit biscuits?
leavened dumpling in stew, rolled dumplings in stew, filled savory dumplings in asia.....

i could go on!

No. I am not. But I enjoy history and digging below the surface

Often I think you are being purposely rigid and exclusionary in order to ignore things and reduce complexity to manageable certainty. I very seriously think so, and it is sad

And this is a case in point. An actual Italian dish and one which is recognized in Italy as pizza. No doubt or argument even possible. It is representative of a class of Italian dishes. But you have insisted that it must be tossed down the memory hole to fit a preconceived foreigner's notion of what pizza "really" is.

Then there is the marinara, a classic pizza without cheese. According to your definition Napolitano cooks are wrong to call it pizza. This will come as a great surprise to them.

drjekel_mrhyde: /we need to practice eating entire animals.


Not really -- every single last part of slaughtered animals is already used. The less appetizing squishy parts just end up in cat, dog, or reptile food, and bones, hooves, etc. are boiled down for beef stock or used for creating gelatin.

The only difference is how much those parts can be sold for.  The going rate for a pound of dog food may be a hell of a lot lower than the going rate for a juicy steak, but it all gets sold and used.

And there's regional differences: in some places cow tongue is dirt cheap because many people have a cultural aversion of eating it, while in other regions it's more expensive than a good steak because people actually enjoy it.

It's all supply and demand.

luna1580: anuran: luna1580: anuran: luna1580: PIZZA must, at a minimum contain a sauce (not always tomato based, but most of the time) and MELTED cheese. and i'm being GENEROUS with my definition. i've been in MANY skirmishes of the FARK PIzza Wars!
...
everything else is just a flatbread. perhaps an ultra
but if it's not pizza dough + a sauce + melted cheese nobody should be labeling it "pizza".

I just had Pizza Ebraica, a centuries-old dish from Rome, at Bella's Italian Bakery. It's a dense bread with raisins, almonds, and candied citron topped with sugar and, I think, rosewater.

Delicious. No sauce. No cheese.

There are other pizzas dating back to at least the sixteenth century along similar lines. Definitions change.

exactly. and sometimes different foods share a name!

so, in FARK PIZZA THREADS, it behooves one to use a modern definition for a modern food! and talk about ROUGHLY the same food!

like you ate a DESSERT that had the term "pizza" in its name? cool. but not relevant to this thread, or ANY Pizza Wars thread i've EVER seen.

you know, like a chocolate hazelnut truffle is not a fungus?
a spanish tortilla is an omelette, a mexican one is a flatbread?
american biscuits and brit biscuits?
leavened dumpling in stew, rolled dumplings in stew, filled savory dumplings in asia.....

i could go on!

sometimes, i feel you're being willfully obtuse just to mess with me!

🙁

No. I am not. But I enjoy history and digging below the surface

Often I think you are being purposely rigid and exclusionary in order to ignore things and reduce complexity to manageable certainty. I very seriously think so, and it is sad

And this is a case in point. An actual Italian dish and one which is recognized in Italy as pizza. No doubt or argument even possible. It is representative of a class of Italian dishes. But you have insisted that it must be tossed down the memory hole to fit a preconceived foreigner's notion of what pizza "really" is.

Then there is the marinara, a classic pizza without ...

holy shiat on a shingle. anyone who thinks I'M "purposefully ridgid" doesn't know me. like sadly so.

AND if you think I can't "manage complexity" it just gets sadder.

oh well. I tried. i actually non-snark tried.

goodnight


Came back night two...yep, still pretty weird in here.
