I'm a vegetarian, can I get one with some apple sage Field Roast in there instead?

I'm not a vegetarian, and I'd love to try a slice (two max).

Don't the Japanese have, like, corn, octopus, and mayo on pizza?

That actually sounds pretty good. I'd try it.

When I visited Japan, I had a pizza that was... I think it was goat cheese and honey. It was awesome

@3, "octopus"!? Disgusting. Now, corn, mayo and squid with a little sprinkle of dried seaweed...that's Japanese pizza.

Doesn't sound like that'd be too out of place at a chippy.

I'll be impressed when the hot dogs have cheese in them

I didn't know there was a way to make pizza evil.

Gross, yet strangely alluring.

Is Britain trying to out obese the US? Processed meat, processed cheese food, processed bleached wheat. Does it come with a Metamucil chaser?

Believe it or not, sausage stuck into otherwise innocent pastry is a English tradition.

Ladies and gents, I give you: Toad in the Hole.…

I think Papa Murphy's cheeseburger pizza sounds grosser, but that's mainly because of the pickles.

@12 You probably have to supply your own. Personally, I would not stray more than 30 feet from a toilet for twenty-four hours after eating that. And I'd buy the BIG can of air freshener.

@8 - pizza would be very out of place at a chippy.

@13 - there's no pastry in toad-in-the-hole - it's batter. Sausage in pastry is a sausage roll.…

@18, 13: Let us not forget the grand American tradition of the weenie wink (which is AWESOME with apple sage Field Roast).

It's oddly sexual in a way I can't explain

@18, Have you been ever been to a chippy!? I can't say what goes on in an English chippy, but in Scotland it's like half of what they sell.

@21 yep. Maybe I'm in one right now.

Where I'm from, Manchester, chippies sell fish, chips & related sundries. You get pizza from a pizza house, a chicken shop, a kebab shop or a plain old takeaway.

Have you lived in Scotland or just visited? This side of the border (though I can't speak for the south who have strange items on their chippy menus) a chippy looks like this:…

But you buy pizza from one of these, which is definitely not a chippy:…

If in doubt, remember that the chippy has a hot food display between the counter and the customer. Pizza/kebab/fried chicken takeaways will have a refrigerator under the counter instead. There is also the Chinese chippy, offering both the full Chinese menu & full chippy menu, again with hot food display the customer side of the counter. However, if it doesn't have a chippy menu it's just a Chinese. And you never get an Indian chippy - it's just an Indian.

I can't wait to try some fine english cuisine during my June trip to England, Scotland and Wales.

Hotdog, sure - I'll try it - but does anyone make pizza with a pretzel crust? Google is not much help much in this regard - though their is a place calling itself "Pretzel Crust Pizza Co." in Kansas City. (Kansas City Yelp has no review.)

That, too, would require a mustard drizzle.

@22, I recently moved back to the US after living there about 3 years. I lived next door to a chippy with a hot food display, filled with chips, fish, sausages, various fried things and yes, pizza. Perhaps this would more accurately be called a fry bar, not that this stopped any of my friends from Glasgow and West Lothian from calling it a chippy. Or from calling the place a few blocks away that sold kebabs and pizzas and chips a chippy. Maybe the term is a little looser in Scotland? I'll leave you with this, notice the pizza box behind the "Just Eat" sign:….

That looks disgusting, I bet the sausage is guaranteed to be 99% meat free.

When I lived in Scotland during the 80s, the local chippy owner used to frisbee the frozen pizzas from the freezer straight into the deep frat fryer !

Seems Italian sausage would have been a traditional crust stuffing. as boiling it in tomato sauce and serving it on french bread soaked with the tomato sauce of green peppers and onions and mild peppers is right up there with pizza. But Hot dogs are best wrapped in a garlic bread with Good home made potato chips and a wide variety of condiments.
