PRAISING PIZZA - By Richard Thomas


They call it pie, but sweet it's not.
And "pizza" means exactly what?
By any name, when it's served hot,
A palate-pleaser's what you've got.

Ignore existing recipes.
To dough, tomato sauce and cheese
Add any toppings that you please
From orchards, gardens, fields and seas.

Begin with veggies, ripe and raw,
Then olives, mushrooms, fruit and slaw.
Add lots of extra cheese to gnaw
And scatter truffles over all.

Then to this scrumptious-looking mess
(A monument to wholesomeness).
Add pepperoni please, unless,
A vegan lifestyle you profess.

Next, top it off with caviar
And, though it sounds a bit bizarre,
Add chocolate, and there you are:
A feast for rajah, queen or czar.

Nutritious, tempting and complete--
It's all a person needs to eat.
No known cuisine can hope to beat
This cheap, beloved and tasty treat.
