Pizza could be said to have some common features with Fataya, an Arab dish which comes in many varieties and styles.
In my neck of the woods, there are many pizza joints which are run and staffed by persons from the Middle East. Many of these also offer kebabs,
burgers, and other fast food items on their menus. One of particular note, which is about three and a quarter miles from my place, offers the largest
pizza for delivery in our district. It is 19 inches of astoundingly flavourful dough, atop which one may order any selection of toppings one might
desire. I personally favour the meat feast variant, which places a generous helping of every meat topping available, amongst the delicious collection
of cheeses they use to finish the pizza.
Pizza may be a simple foodstuff, but it could also be said that pizza, like many things, is far more than it might appear to be. In this instance,
pizza is something that people from many different cultures and nations of origin find delicious, desirable. It is something that people have in
common, no matter where they are from, like the requirement to breathe atmosphere, consume liquids, and excrete the byproducts of digestion.
It might seem strange to consider, but the chances are that pizza was popular with the individuals involved with this terror attack, for the same
reasons as it is popular with everyone else. It is delicious, filling, and if it comes in a box, requires no plates be washed after its consumption.
