No, Animal Lovers, I Did Not Have the Schiacciata.

Last night I went out for pizza. When we got there and were seated, the server brought us our menus, and I almost died laughing. Please see the description of the schiacciata:

Yeah. I apologize for the fuzziness of the photo, but I was shaking with laughter as I took it.

(Just what is a pizza doe? Is it a pizza-cooking deer, or some strange new genus wherein the yeast gains consciousness, takes control, and prances off into the moonlit forest glen? If there is a pizza doe, is there a pizza buck and a pizza fawn named Bambizza? Is a flattened pizza doe roadkill?)

It was all too much. With images of a flattened and halved pizza doe dancing in my head, I went vegetarian and got a mushroom pizza. It came out normal and round. And tasty.

Here is a forest song. If I became a wolf, I would definitely hunt pizza does.

Blitzen Trapper - Fur

And as a bonus, here is an Italian song that the Blitzen Trapper song brings to mind. Although its tone is much more cynical.

Fabrizio de André - Coda di Lupo

Maybe it's some type of secret Virginia specialty.

Maybe it's Lily's (HP's mom) patronus when hungry???
