Veg or Non-Veg Pizza?

Why am I posting a photo of pizza delivery boxes?  Just to show you the “veg” and “non-veg” stickers.

I see this red dot/green dot system on menus everywhere in Bangalore.  Vegetarian food is the norm here.  In fact I’ve twice heard people remark on the presence of “non-veg” food.

Dayalan, our Hindu driver, was invited to a Christian wedding, and told me with delight that non-veg food would be served at the wedding.  And a Hindu caddy working at the golf club explained the noise from the nearby village as the sounds from the Muslim (actually he said “Mussulman”) festival of Eid-al-Fitr, when people would eat “full non-veg”.

So if you start from the assumption that all food is vegetarian, you really do need a red marker on our American-style pizza with extra pepperoni.

    We loved the Domino Pizza in Ahmedabad. We laughed and laughed when they would hide the pepperoni under the cheese, also how they asked for a name but never the spelling. My husband is David and the funniest was Mr. Devil! I adore India….namaste….Anne
