wtf? should have used HP Sauce

i have a vivid memory of visiting still-commie poland as a kid and getting "pizza" off a street stall that literally was just bread with ketchup on top

later on in life i would have a gf that liked to dip her slices in a bit of ketchup on the side. found the vinegar boost hard to resist myself after a while tbh

Also, is that necklace made out of teeth? Because, you know, arguing about choice of pizza condiments with someone who wears a necklace made out of teeth seems unwise.

non-britisher ketchup story: at lunch with co-workers and this one guy i didn't know so well ordered a burger and when it came asked for a bottle of ketchup. the server said they only supplied it the little pots. without pausing the guy said he wanted six of them. then proceded to pour ketchup over every bite he took.

First day in the US, my husband is dining alone, eating chips or something (fries! god) and asks for tomato sauce. The waiter is hugely confused, trying to work out what kind of tomatoey sauce he could possibly mean, eventually bringing out the chef so that they can work together and bring him this elusive jus.

I think the fact that the shrimp on the pizza were served in-shell is the worst part; it's like getting barbecue chicken pizza with the chicken in the form of bone-in wings

that said, HP sauce is indeed superior to any US condiment

In Trinidad you have to specifically ask them not to smother your pizza in hot pepper sauce, otherwise it comes as standard irrespective of which pizza you ordered. Ketchup is barbarianism, though.

Last night I ordered a Papa Johns which was half 'BBQ Beef Brisket': Melt-in-the-mouth chunks of brisket burnt ends sliced from slow-smoked beef brisket, plus delicious crispy onions and bacon, drizzled with a sweet Cola BBQ sauce.
Yes, I had my reservations about a sweet Cola BBQ sauce - although it sounds a bit Nigella, Papa Johns are exactly the sort to screw it up and make something truly disgusting. But curiosity got the better of me.

I can only describe the sauce as tasting exactly like melted down Cola bottles (sweets). Really quite revolting. Luckily somehow they hadn't drowned the pizza in it and it couldn't really be tasted, plus the brisket was actually quite nice.
