When I first started this blog, my Would You Rather? questions were a hot attraction and reader favorite. Sadly, somewhere along the line I got too focused on keeping up with the “food news” and forgot that those questions are essential for what this blog is all about: facilitating off-beat and unique thoughts and discussions about food.

So after a layoff since September 12th, I am back with a new Would You Rather?

I would also like to ask my readers to weigh in. Would you like to see more of them? Or just have them sporadically like they have been so far? Also, I was thinking of doing a Would You Rather? WEEK. A new question, each day, Monday thru Friday. Is that something people would be interested in? If it is, I will do it next week. Anyways, here is today’s question:

Would You Rather?

Option #1: You can never have any toppings on your pizza again (besides cheese).


Option #2: You can never have any toppings on a burger again (besides cheese).


For burgers this would mean no lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, fried onions or mushrooms. It also includes any meat you might add to a burger, like bacon. However, this also means that if you choose to keep the burger toppings, you could be consigned to a life of eating just cheese pizza with no toppings.

    Believe it or not…I’m a total Plain Jane and only top my burgers with ketchup (I assume that doesn’t count as a topping?) I’m also fine eating cheese pizza but I do enjoy other kinds like mushroom and pepperoni, so I could go without the burger toppings all the way!

    Also, go for it with bringing back the “Woudl you rathers”.

    Eick, here are other things to consider:

    a) Hillary brings up a good point. Ketchup is still allowed, right? I mean, we’re not talking a white pizza here, there is still tomato sauce, and tomato sauce to pizza is like ketchup to a burger, no?

    b) this question poll is slightly misleading. Think about all the vegetarians who could care less about burger toppings, because they don’t eat burgers, unless you count veggie/turkey burgers, so I guess that could still work.

    c) as we’ve discussed, I live in NY, where good pizza is abundant. Now in other areas where you might not find a decent plain slice, you need those toppings, so I guess it’s easy for me to choose burger toppings.

    d) can you imagine five guys sans onions, lettuce and jalapenos? I think not. p.s., there are now 2 five guys in the NY area!

    Doesn’t matter to me. A truly great burger doesn’t need any toppings other than maybe some cheese. Likewise, pizza can be ruined with too many toppings as well. A truely great pizza should be good with nothing more than cheese on it. Thing is, I can’t live without pepperoni pizza.
