Did Someone Say Pizza?

The following short was written in response to a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch. 

In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes pizza. It can be an original pizza pie (or slice) or something pizza-like. Go where the prompt leads!

On our last trip to Montreal, I insisted we have pizza.

If you’ve never tried an all-dressed Montreal pizza you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s almost impossible to eat this pie with your hands and I suggest you have a knife and fork handy.

Thin slices of pepperoni atop a puffy golden crust that has been moistened with a delicious tomato sauce. Fresh mushrooms and green pepper generously follow then the pizza is covered with a carpet of cheese that has been baked till the cheese is slightly browned.

I swear it tastes like a slice of heaven.

          1. I’ve lived with it a long while. I allow myself sprouts and parsnips for Christmas dinner. And I’m okay with that. But if I repeat it within… I don’t know how long, I get the reaction. I think it’s the phyto-chemicals. I have problems with beans too. Resticts my choice of veggies.

  1. We all need a slice of heaven these days!

    When I make my own pizza – store crust of some kind Naan bread or a ready round kind I add on what ever I’ve got on hand. Sometimes I insist my hubby look at it first since I play with my food and make nice patterns. He’ll tell me I’ve moved onto the next round (cooking show competition) or at the very least I get points for presentation 😉

    I’m not sure where my own verse came from. But I’m glad to have brought in some humor!
    BTW: quire = our sheets of paper or parchment folded to form eight leaves, as in medieval manuscripts… I probably should at that at CR – it’s at my post with the other prompt 😀
