Thread: Pizza menu

  1. #1

    Default Pizza menu

    I've started a new series on my food blog for which I get menus from various
    Italian restaurants and then translate and decipher them. The first one is
    the pizza half of a half and half little restaurant in my town.

    It occurred to me that those of you who love pizza might be inspired by some
    of the pizzas they offer. Of course this place is in northern Umbria and
    doesn't represent all of Italy by any stretch of the imagination, but they
    do make a really good and entirely made in house pizza that stands up to
    most I have ever had here and exceeds the ordinary standard.

    Nope, real meals. I plan to translate it later. They actually have a
    butcher's case with loins of meat and the meat guy cuts to order. Danish or
    Chianina or Italian generic beef or all Italian pork. Simple, but good.

    When one couldn't get much steak in the UK because of mad cow, that winter
    loads of Brits came to our town... no reason why here other than it isn't
    expensive I guess, and I would overhear them in that place talking in
    glowing terms, like, "Did you see that steak?" "Look how think his steak
    is!" "Ohmigod, this is wonderful." The beefeaters express came directly to
    Fez.

    How fun. :-)
    And a very interesting idea.

    I liked this one from the first article:

    "Pizza Capricciosa used to be ³chefıs choice² for which the maker would
    put on at his design whatever he felt like and was in the kitchen.
    Nowadays it is defined and has tomato, mozzarella, mushrooms, artichokes
    and boiled ham on it. I like this, too, but it does seem heavy once you
    are used to Italian pizzas."

    That tuna and onion one sounds interesting but I think I'd rather do
    anchovie. <g>

    So are you scanning the menus or photographing them? Many smaller
    places around here print "portable" menus on plain 8 1/2" x 11" paper,
    especially if they do deliveries. Last place I worked actually had a
    notebook of menus from local places that had take out or delivery.

    Sometimes for lunches, one person would volunteer to drive and pick up
    take out orders and the rest would pitch in to pay for that persons
    lunch. "You fly, we'll pay". <g>

    I just looked at the headers..... the mere fact that you crossposted right
    off the bat, and crossposted to a uk. newsgroup that is one of the well
    known 'habitats' of our flea bitten trolls...... puts you in the same
    boat.

    (crosspost snipped......... you pathetic troll.)

    Peter, you get up on the wrong side of the bed or something this
    morning? Giusi has been a valued poster here for quite some time!

    It's common practice for some blogs to have commercial links in them.
    Once I get mine set up, I have every intention of doing the same.
    Webhosting costs money and using affiliates is a good way to help defray
    the cost.

    And no money is made unless you decide to click on those links...

    And her article was a good read. :-) Gave me some new ideas for food
    combos even tho' I have pretty much given pizza up due to the bread
    crusts.

    'This morning' is 0120hrs here.


    Last time I felt the comfort of my bed was about 0300hrs yesterday.



    > Giusi has been a valued poster here for quite some time!



    I know it's been around for some time..... I've had 'discussions' with it
    a long time ago. I worked out back then it was toxic.

    AHEM!!!!!!!


    I was making comment on the fact that when *some* people advertise their
    website here, it's all hunky dory, but when others do the same (ie, Stu)
    they get lamblasted by all the assholes under the sun for being spammers.

    And the fact that 'Goosy" crossposted to a ****ing uk newsgroup puts
    her/it *way* down on my 'read it' scale.

    You *do* know about all the **** that has been coming through from the uk
    groups, don't you?

    She/it could have posted the article here, then gone off and done the same
    on the other group, rather than crosspost.

    With all the ****e coming in here from the uk groups........ you can't
    have a shot at anyone for being leery of them.

    <shrugs> To each their own.
    I've had my "bitchy" moments too (especially during this past month!)
    and many that know me better chose to point it up to me, then forgive
    it. I choose to do the same for most people. :-)

    <lol> UK posters are famous for giving people ****! I think it's
    cultural and I often find it to be entertaining, or I just ignore it.
    I've gotten some heavy **** from UK posters on the subject of the second
    amendment and realized that arguing with them about it was like peeing
    in the ocean. No impact.

    <shrugs> I have little issue with crossposting so long as it is a
    RELATED group, which it was. Real trolls crosspost to motorcycle,
    political, drug and sports groups! That really stirs the ****. <g>

    I used to crosspost to related groups until people really bitched about
    it.

    You're ****ting me, right??

    I hadn't noticed...... Really.


    What I *did* notice was that you started to speak out at some things, and the
    self-appointed 'group nazis' (whom noone can speak against) started pulling
    you back into line to be the nice complacent, non-confrontational person that
    you usually are........ because God only knows you can't go upsetting *their*
    little apple carts!!



    > and many that know me better chose to point it up to me, then forgive
    > it.




    Om..... they don't know you....... and all they want is another non-
    confrontational poster to kiss their collective arses.


    Now if you told me that GloriaP, Merle(??), Margaret S, maybe Janet, Felice,
    Dora, Cshenk.... et al, had chosen to "point it up to me", I would have
    agreed.

    Because I'm sure *those* ladies would have told you that you'd stepped over
    the line.


    Anyone else........ like sf, spurts, et al..... are just doing a 'power
    trip' on you.


    > I choose to do the same for most people. :-)




    You shouldn't........... but that's up o you.

    That's all well and good, as long as they do it in their own ****ing group.



    > I think it's
    > cultural and I often find it to be entertaining, or I just ignore it.



    That's all well and good. If you want to do that ****, or if anyone in here
    wants to do that ****....... go to the specific newsgroup, and do it.

    But it doesn't need to be aired here.



    > I've gotten some heavy **** from UK posters on the subject of the second

    I don't like Poms.


    One only has to look at their 'culture' nowadays.

    The term 'related' is rather loose and frivolous.... and open to the posters
    own interpretaion at the time of posting.

    And what I noticed is that Peter Lucas continually changes his ID to
    avoid everyone's kill files.

    Such a glutton for attention... you really should work on that. Seems
    that you have some issues.

    Meanwhile, I can killfile them as fast as you can change them.

    Thanks for removing the crosspost. I've killfiled crossposts to this
    group from that uk group because there are several trolls who were
    looking to stir up trouble between the two groups. There are lots of
    nice people on that uk group, but the crossposters were mostly trolls.

    Yes, I've been following her posts for a long time, and I would have
    been sorry to miss this one.

    Although, as a diabetic, pizza seems to spike my blood sugar, it's
    certainly not off my diet.

    Very nice post, Giusi, I liked it.
    I could add a note about calzone: being it closed it is very good for take
    away, since it chills down more slowly than pizza. On the other side, it
    tends to develop a great humidity at the bottom, where it touches the dish
    or, in case of takeaway, the cardboard box: so when you order it for
    takeaway move it all on one side of the box, then at halfway towards home
    just move it to the opposite side.
    No excess humidity makes for a good calzone.
    I don't see gorgonzola in that page, here it's some years that almost every
    pizzeria lists the "pizza al gorgonzola". Many have also the "pizza
    gorgonzola e funghi" and a few ones have the "pizza alla francescana",
    topped with gorgonzola and porcini mushrooms, a nice fusion dish.

    Can't see the kebab meat or chicken tikka one there? Sorry. A nice way
    to shame the overpriced pizzas you get in London/Dublin by putting up
    the price list, it's a disgrace how much you have to pay for pizza in
    some places.

    Pizza Salsiccia e Cipolla is now forcing me to leave my desk and go
    home as it's made me too hungry.

    That's a great idea, thanks! Got any menus from Rome? I loved the
    pizza there and was especially enamored with the salad on a pizza
    crust idea.

    He has two IDs that he uses regularly, maybe a third... then there are
    all the Peter spoofers. I think he changes ID depending on which
    computer he uses, but I can post from different computers without
    changing IDs - so I don't know why he can't/won't.

    Probably more northern than this one. I use more Gorgonzola than my
    neighbors by quite a lot. I have to really look if I want piccante, too.
