Vegetarian Pizza

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been reading a series about a hard boiled wizard detective in contemporary Chicago by Jim Butcher. Been quite pleasant reading if you enjoy fantasy. Anyway, there was an exchange in this one book between the main character and a filler character about getting pizza.

"What do your want on your vegetarian pizza?"

"Dead pigs and cows."

"What??"

"Hey--they're vegetarians."

On a similar note (food and fantasy story), Steven Brust's latest "Dzur" involves eating a rather amazing meal as the starting point into each chapter. Each chapter starts with a course in the meal. Fits well in the series, but in this case does not stand alone well.

beleive a traditional chicago dep dish is spinach, mozz, and red sauce. A filling and delicious pizza. Love reading Brust, have read just about everything by him. Valabar's sounds like a wonderful restaurant, just wish it was real.

Surprised this got moved as it wasn't so much about food as jokes and books with good food scenes.

If Valabars was real, I couldn't afford to eat in it. Ever.

This is really bizarre to me. Most traditional pizzas are vegetarian by nature. Tomato and mozzarella, tomato and herbs and garlic (marinara), 4 cheeses, artichoke, mushroom, etc. A few types have a few token slices of hot salame (what you call "pepperoni") or a slice of prosciutto or of course, a few anchovies. Hardly meaty eating. Though not a man, i love meat, but pizza is not where i look for my chunk of beef! Yuck.

sorry, i can go either way. nice light vege with artichoke hearts, olives, tomatoes, etc or an all meat wonder with sausage, pepperoni, salami and bacon :lips: course i think i prefer pesto sauce with most of my vege pizzas also, not so much with my meat pizzas.

And don't forget the classic Margherita ....

A little bit of meat can be a nice adjunct to some pizzas, but all too often the pies come overloaded with meat (and cheese).

I really love a good spinach alfredo pizza. It's a richer spin on vegetarian pizza to use the alfredo sauce and for protein lovers, you don't seem to be missing your meat as much when you have a good alfredo sauce instead of tomato.

Try spinach, mushroom, and artichoke alfredo pizza sometime. It's divine and very versatile.

I'm not familiar with a "good alfredo sauce", perhaps you could take the opportunity to "educate me" as to what it is?

Pete,

 

You're a wicked, wicked man.  Let's hope Santa hasn't started paying attention yet.

Oh my, no one else here likes eggplant and roasted red bell peppers on their veggie pizza?  You don't know what you're missing.
