Oops

Just discovered, having complained loudly and at length to the pizza delivery place about their barbecue sauce, that..

...recipes vary widely. (wiki-always honest, honest-pedia)

I'd hazard a guess that the new, sweeter barbecue sauce is a recipe from a different supplier.

Doh!

Thanks goodness for the interweb.

Yeah but if someone comes to like a certain sauce at a certain place, that's what brings them back. It's not cool to be switching vendors. You are going there to buy something for a reason - to get something you like, not to go try other mysterious things all willy-nilly.

As a true BBQ lover....that is disturbing. BBQ sauce should never get close to a pizza crust imo.

On my, apparently, strange Euroland pizzas I prefer tuna over ground beef and was quite happy with the tangy, slightly smoky, savory BBQ sauce they were previously using. The new sweet variety is pretty disgusting.

A few pizza places also do fruit pizzas, i.e., regular base and cheese, no tomato sauce, then fruit, nuts and stuff on top. Not bad but not an experience I'll go out of my way to repeat.

Typical MarkHR pizza (makes for a BIG pizza)

deep pan (but NOT chicago style)
regular crust
tomato paste base (BBQ but only if it's the savory stuff)
less cheese option
tuna
anchovies
olives
jalapenos
chillis
mushrooms
sweetcorn
onion
garlic
crispy (must be crispy) bacon
capers
tomato chunks
pickled artichokes

I'd add chinese chicken/marinated chicken but it usually tastes as if they merely waved the marinate/sauce bottle at the chicken rather than gave it time to actually marinate.

Do not trick up the pizza! Crust, sauce, cheese, meat (pepperoni, italian sausage are acceptable here) and maybe onions and olives. That is all.

I never complain to anyone that handles my food (unless Im never going back/ordering again) as the next time you order they may give you the "secret sauce."

Like language, various crises, tourists and other across the pond trading, food goes both ways too.


Mmmm, smoky mesquite flavor!
