I think I've had delivery twice in 30 years of ordering pizzas. I prefer to be there when it comes from the oven, so I can rush it home while it's really hot. Still, most places here (Great Neck) deliver - I can't see why no one in Lake Grove will. They're not that rural.

It's not delivery, it's DiGiorno! [Wink] Sorry. I couldn't resist. (For the non-Americans, DiGiorno is a line of frozen supermarket pizza. I can't comment on it's taste because I've never had it. Looks like thick crust, which I have to be in the mood for and rarely am.)

But Fluff, yeah, Lake Grove isn't that rural. That's exactly what I thought. If my ex-in-laws can get delivery in Dutchess County, which is rural, Lake Grove should be able to.

Perhaps it's different there, but the commercials here are, "It's not delivery, it's Delissio!"

"Franky Delissio? I think I saw him with your sister."

Around here, there's an inverse relationship between delivery and pizza quality. None of the pizza places I'm willing to buy from deliver.

's funny... none of the places I'd want to buy pizza from would want me as a customer. (heh)


...and I've seen similar commercials for three different brands: "It's not delivery, it's [insert brand name here]"
My favourite commercial was the one with a guy and a girl arguing over whether it was delivery or not, till the girl gives up and says its delivery. Cut to exterior shot of a cabin on a tiny island in the middle of a lake.

I tried another place here in Ottawa last night. It's called Topper's. Apparently they're a Canadian chain. Pizza was OK... nothing special.

Damn it. Why can't I find GOOD pizza in this damned city?! [Razz]

The only good grocery store pizza is Giant Eagle's rising-crust line. But they're $5.99 apiece regular price, so they're not worth buying unless they go on sale. (If I want to spend more than $5 on a pizza, at that level of quality, I'll just get Little Caesar's instead. Cheaper and about the same quality, although LC's is inconsistent.)

If you want the most unsettling toppings, the place is "La pointe des Amériques" (The Americas' Slice), in Quebec City. Last time I went, I wanted to try the rattling snake pizza, but they had no more. I had an alligator one instead. [evil] The rattling snake being a one-time special, I may never have a chance to try it again! [cry baby]

They don't have their menu available in English yet, so for those who read French, or don't mind Babelfish and the likes, Bon appétit! (pdf)

By the way, the correct word is "rattlesnake". Can't say I've ever eaten one, though.

Thanks, I knew it was something like that, but I didn't check my dictionary. But that was better than "snake with a bell," wasn't it? That would be the direct translation of "serpent à sonnette"... [crazy]

Just to continue steering the thread away from its original topic, what's the best/worst, and most surprising topping you had on a pizza? Alligator was good, by the way. Like most-if not all-reptilians, it is very tender with a delicate taste not far from chicken. Otherwise, I really like chicken with bbq sauce and leek. And luckily enough, I never had a pizza topping I couldn't stomach, but I believe Pizza Hut had (still have?) some dip sauce to go with their pizzas. I tried it, then put it away.

The most unusual thing I ever had on a pizza was corn. Yes the yellow stuff.

I was in Korea and found out it was more popular than pepperoni.

Wasn't bad though.


edit: I finally saw the commercial for the pizza that started the thread. You know even on the T.V. it didn't look very good. The white slime just doesn't look right.

When my parents visited last year my mom ordered a BLT (Bacon, lettuce & tomato) pizza, no tomato sacue it had Mayo instead. On another occasion she ordered a chicken pizza with Ranch dressing instead tomato sauce. Can't comment on how they tasted since I'm a vegetarian and did not try them, but they looked & smelled nasty!

When I were in Sweden I went to a place that did rather nice v. thin pizzas ("Lille Husset", in Uppsala, IIRC )... except the locals had a habit of smearing coleslaw on them... which doesn't taste as bad as it sounds. [Smile]

Salad. I didn't order it, but it just wigs me out. You eat salad on the side, not ON THE PIZZA! I'd also have to say pineapple. That just doesn't work for me.

Now pineapple is one of my favourite toppings on a pizza.

Hawaiian pizza = yumm.

A place around here had Peanut Butter pizza. Yes, a pizza with peanut butter slathered on it. I could never bring myself to try it though. [blush]

Back off topic:

Here's what my newly started Douglas Adam's book, The Long Dark Tea- Time of the Soul(absolutely hilarious book, might I add. I recommend it to everyone) has to say about pizza and pizza delivery:

"London was the place she liked living in most, apart of course, from the pizza problem, which drover her crazy. Why would no one deliver pizza? Why did no one understand that it was fundamental to the whole nature of pizza that it arrives at your front door in a hot cardboard box? That you slithered it out of greaseproof paper and ate it in folded slices in front of the TV? What was the fundamental flaw in the stupid, stuck-up, sluggardly English that they couldn't grasp this simple principal? For some odd reason it was the one frustration she could never learn simply to live with and accept, and about once a month or so she would get very depressed, phone a pizza restaurant, order the biggest, most lavish pizza she could describe--pizza with an extra pizza on it, essentially--and then, sweetly, ask them to deliver it.

'To what?'
'Deliver. Let me give you the address--'
'I don't understand. Aren't you going to come and pick it up?'
'No. Aren't you going to deliver? My address--'
'Er, we don't do that miss.'
'Don't do what?'
'Er, deliver.'
...."
etc.

Baked beans.

What?! Baked beans on pizza is the food of the gods! Preferably with thick rashers of bacon and hugh mushrooms...

Actually, it's not bad. I was turned off by it until I tried it. It's a California Pizza Kitchen specialty. They have some great combinations to try. They will also allow you to reorder if you try something new and don't like it. Menu Here

I miss my dining common's pizza. They served a great garlic mashed potato pizza (no sauce, crust covered with GMPs and some sort of cheese); the nacho pizza (seasoned ground beef, peppers, tomato pieces, and orange cheese) was good too. The margherita pizza was a bit strange, but the BLT pizza more than made up for it with its pieces of bacon, orange cheese and small tomato pieces--thankfully no lettuce, 'though I always picked off the tomato pieces.
