I doubt anyone knows why, but as humans we seem to have a fascination with asking “if you could only have/do/eat/drink one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?” Me and my friend have this down.
I say pizza. She says salad. Both are brilliant options.
Pizza doesn’t have to be unhealthy, and I don’t know why people think it does, to be honest. It’s one of the most versatile meals in the world, because really its only restriction is that it’s a base of something with some toppings of something else.
You can make a standard, unhealthy, Dominos pizza, sure. But you can also make a cauliflower base pizza with fresh tomato sauce and vegetables. And that’s why I’d choose pizza for the rest of my life, because it can be absolutely anything. Savoury pizza, sweet pizza, protein-packed pizza, cheese feast pizza. Vegetarian, meat-eater, pescetarian, vegan. Pizza can literally work for any diet.
Having said that, salad also works on pretty much the same principle. Savoury salad? Leaves, croutons, veggies – sorted. Sweet salad? FRUIT SALAD. And again, you can add meat, fish, whatever.
Personally I prefer my choice. I think pizza beats salad any day. You can put salad on top of pizza. Plus, I feel like it’s easier to incorporate cheese into a pizza than into a salad, and I cannot live without some cheese. I love that stuff.
One of my favourite meals that takes a bit more effort than my usual “shove in the oven and boil on the top” process is a cauliflower base pizza like I mentioned above, which I actually was inspired to do by a YouTube video with Niomi Smart and Marcus Butler a while back – probably about two years ago.
Anyway, that’s my take on the question. What would you choose?
