Never Be Afraid to Try New Restaurants and Cuisines

When I was growing up, my mother meat and potatoes for dinner each night. Once a week, we would order pizza from the same pizza place. I never even tried Mexican food until I was 18 years old! I loved it and that led me on a quest to try all of the different types of cuisines out there and I have to say that I love almost all of them. When trying a new cuisine, I don't always love the first dish I try, but I find that after trying a few dishes, I find one that I fall in love with. I think that trying new food frequently can be a great adventure that adds some zest to your life. I plan to post about many foods I have tried and plan to try on my blog, so come back soon!

Special Dietary Needs And Requests For Pizza Delivery

Your local pizzeria is fully aware that consumers are becoming evermore educated about the foods they eat, especially about fast food such as pizza. In the past, the only choices they could make were the selection of toppings and among a few different styles of crust.

Times have changed, and competition has increased exponentially, so pizza shops will do anything possible to meet the needs of their customers, offering a wide variety of choices and amenities.

Pizza for customers with health concerns

Gluten free crusts

As more consumers become aware of problems with gluten, many pizza shops are offering gluten free crusts. Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, and individuals with gluten intolerance can suffer gastrointestinal distress when it is consumed.

Those with Celiac disease can actually suffer from malnutrition if they consume too much gluten, because their immune system attacks their small intestine, blocking the body's ability to absorb nutrients.

Gluten free crusts are more difficult to use, because gluten is an excellent binding agent, giving products such as pizza crust their smooth texture. However, they allow customers with these disorders a chance to really enjoy the pizza without worrying about ill effects, so many pizza shops have started to include them on their menus.

Whole grain crusts

While pizza will not likely be considered a health food in the foreseeable future, they can still be made healthier using whole grains instead of heavily processed white flour.

No-cheese pizza

While eating a pizza without melted cheese may seem bizarre, individuals who are on a low cholesterol diet must either refrain from eating pizza or choose this alternative. Pizzas with just the sauce and topping is actually quite delicious, although it is an acquired taste

Pizza for customers with religious or morality-based dietary restrictions

Many pizza shops have special pizza cutters that are only used for pizzas that contain no pork products, so the pizzas cannot be contaminated by using a cutter that has been used to cut sausage and other toppings containing pork.

These cutters are also used for vegetarians who eschew eating meat and don't want meat products to touch their food.

Some consumers also request the no-cheese option, preferring to eat their pizza without cheese or to add their own non-dairy cheese substitutes at home. Some cheeses contain rennet, which is an enzyme produced from the stomachs of calves and pigs. 

Half baked pizza

Whether the customer wants a pizza that they can cook to completion at any time of the day or night, or they choose to add their own cheese and want it to melt as the pizza is baking, pizza shops will gladly deliver a pizza that is fully uncooked or has been in the oven for a limited time.

Pizza delivery itself has undergone substantial improvements, with warming bags that keep the pizzas and sides piping hot and ready to enjoy. Pizza shop owners realize that one bad experience doesn't just mean the loss of one sale, but possibly years of recurring sales.

Pizza customers know what they like, and will often order from the same shop consistently for many years, so shop owners realize that adapting to customers' changing needs is good business. Don't be afraid to ask for a special consideration when ordering your next pizza delivery. They want your business, now and hopefully for many years to come.
