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!

montreal pizza flash fiction

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. A little too far for me to travel for pizza, but you now have me ravenous for one. 🙂 Happy Sunday my friend.

    • Yes it would be quite a ways for you to travel, but if you ever find yourself in Montreal … 🙂 Have a great Sunday, Bill.

  2. Oh stop it, please. I can have the cheese, but the dough base is anathema to me. BooHoo

      • No. I can’t eat brassicas. I have a stomach explosion. Extremely painful.

          • 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.

  4. 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 😀

    • When we make pizza at home we either buy pizza dough from our local bakery or make our own crust. I’ve used Naan bread before and enjoyed it.

  5. My dad’s pizzas always had a generous amount of topping so you had to eat those with a knife and fork too. They sound similar to what he made.
