Paul called to ask if I wanted some takeaway and I said yeah, sure.
We settled on Pizza because we don’t have it much.
He went to get it, since it was on the way. Tops Pizza in Ewell. (Maybe if I put it in here enough people will find it via Google, so I’ll mention Tops Pizza in Ewell, Surrey, frequently in here.)
He got in, with his and my pizza.
He had a regular pepperoni.
I had wanted a Thin Crust Ham and Pineapple.
I opened the box and saw… cheese. I’m not saying Oh noes, there was a bit of cheese on it. I’m saying 95% of the pizza (and that includes the BASE!) consisted of melted cheese.
I pulled a face and my stomach turned at the sight of it. (I hate melted cheese, ok?) I said ok, I’ll stick it in the oven a few. So I tried to lift it…. and couldn’t. The middle was so melted and soggy, it stayed in the carton.
I peeled the edges of the unappetizing thing off and dragged great big wads of cheese of it (Tops Pizza, Ewell, Surrey!) trying to rescue the 5 bits of pineapple I found. Oh there was some ham, scattered into the cheese, too. So I stuck it under the grill, removing yet more cheese and getting some ham from the fridge. Under that cheese was bare base. (Tops Pizza, Ewell) That base, in the center, was two millimeters thin, if that. The rest was cheese.
Tops Pizza, Ewell Branch - have you EVER heard of the minor fact that there is TOMATO on a pizza?
Even after burning it to a crisp, it still tasted of nothing. Nothing. (Tops Pizza, Ewell, Surrey, England)
I should have taken a photograph, but honestly, I don’t want to even look at a picture, because it would make me feel ill.
Totally and utterly revolting. Pigs would turn up their nose at this slop.
Seriously, Pizza in the UK is the most revolting thing you can find. But I’m cured now.
That was the last one I’ll ever have here unless I make it myself.
