I purchased a pizza last night for $17. When I left work at 6pm there was a bad accident on the highway - didn't inconvenience me but the traffic was bad for about 3ks... anyhoo, I decided to get a pizza from a local cafe.
Instead of mozzarella why do they use cheese blend which is predominantly something like kraft cheddar cheese, which is like melted glue when it is hot (and like soap when it's cold)? It's awful. I was hungry last night and ate a few pieces, but tonight I heated it up and picked at it, then I tossed it in the bin. There was no taste of the ham and mushrooms on the pizza, and the base wasn't cooked enough....
There's an Eagle Boys on the highway, tonight is cheap Tuesday - I can get a pizza for about $8.50. They're usually not bad, but if you want cheese on that it's an extra $3. At least the toppings aren't sprayed on... most of the time.
Does anyone else remember when you used to buy pizzas and they were reasonably inexpensive, the toppings weren't sprayed on, and toppings filled to the edge of the pizza (no extra charge for this), and you didn't need a scanning electron microscope to find the cheese? If you want to see and taste the mozzarella, you need to order extra cheese, which will cost you extra.
Many years ago Pizza Hut was great, they had a dish called "cavatini", it was pasta spirals with toppings the same as they used on their pizza, tomato sauce, mozzarella on top, it was really nice, not overcooked, not dry, just perfect. It was a favourite of mine.
I suppose everyone's trying to cut costs.
