A generic pizza from google
This isn't necessarily a post about pizza in literature or movies or media. But if it was I would say that pizza is vastly unappreciated in media. Most people will eat pizza hot or re-heated in the microwave but rarely do we meet those few in movies or television shows where they eat the pizza cold & it's not seen as something strange. Real people eat cold pizza, from the fridge not pizza thats been sitting on the dining room table since last night gross pizza, but pizza that has sat in the cold refrigerated air & then they just take it out & eat it. This is normal, so are olives on pizza. Its like the only pizza that exists in movie/television world are the generic pepperoni or meat lovers with the occasional vegan joke. Olives on pizza are normal like pineapple & squid ink, which is yes a pizza topping. You google pizza & look at the images & the first one you see is your every day pepperoni pizza, yes its familiar but we aren't watching the show/movie for something familiar that we can see in everyday life. We're watching it because it intrigues us with how different it is. People actually stalk other people or have secret club meetings or magic schools, who's to say that they eat the same sort of food as everyone else? Not everyone likes the same taste so why portray it that way when you could have characters that eat eggs on their pizza?
My friends & I have been playing Skyrim lately & recently they've been introducing me to mods, which is great because now I can be upset over bone meal pizza mods, glow dust pizza, bear claw pizza, I mean for creativity sake if you can bee's & troll fat why not put them on a pizza? I mean if there's a mod where the dragons are turned into Thomas the Tank Engine why not have one for really weird pizza flavors?

In short the media has a poor representation of pizza & it is vastly unappreciated. Also Skyrim should have pizza mods.
