…. and I needed his advice re: considered topping options and innovative topping placement, but to be honest asking for Nigel’s considered opinion when faced with a wide and varied selection of aforementioned toppings doesn’t really work ….. as his attitude is why only have one or two toppings when there are ten to choose from….. if they all taste good, why not bung them all on in great plenitude …. and once the cheese has melted all over the pizza … it didn’t really matter how delicately your placed your mushroom slices, peppers or salami …. because everything would end up in the same place anyway …… to wit his tummy!!!
The boy has so much to learn about fine cuisine ….. but he washed up with robust enthusiasm and set the table, whilst I kept my eye on the oven.
When it came out …. it smelt and looked delicious despite my reticence to just chuck it all together as advised by Nigel ….
