VeganMoFo 2017: Pizza Doge, Verona

This isn’t a particularly vegan-friendly place, and in fact there are no advertised vegan options.  But we were looking for a light meal and Dr HH had his heart set on some of the vegetarian pizza and calzone goods displayed in the window.  While he was placing his order, I asked the server (who spoke perfect English) if they had any vegan goods.  “Veganism?  That’s a bit too far for me,” he replied, then instantly added, “Oh, but these ones here are fine.”

He pointed to this tomato bread and a similar olive-topped one.  Hurrah! It was a good deep dish bread which he warmed up for me, topped with flavoursome tomatoes and a hearty drizzle of oil.  It was just what I needed!

This place is just along the road from Castelvecchio, so it’s handy to stop in when you’re seeing the sights.  You can pay to enter the castle properly, which enables you to climb the towers and walk the ramparts.  We just wandered as much of the grounds as possible for free, including this bridge.

Alas, there’s a metal chain on the bridge, and you all know what that means:  people have covered the chain with their love locks.  Guess who thinks love locks are a self-indulgent eyesore?

  1. But the love locks look so cool lol!
    The pizza bread is enticing! I’d love to try a piece of that. Love the sound of tomatoes and a drizzle of oil. 🙂

      The oil really made it! I don’t know what it’s like in the USA, but in western Europe anything that can be covered in love locks *is* covered in love locks. I once saw one clipped on a pedestrian bridge over a motorway!

    I remember first hearing about love locks and thought it was a cute idea… then I found out that they are ALL OVER THE PLACE! It didn’t seem so cute anymore.

      Yeah, I like it when stories pop up in the news about workers being periodically sent out with bolt cutters to get rid of them before they damage whatever they’re clipped to. I’d love that job.
