I've been ordering takeout pizza from a local uws joint. The topping they call "mozzarella" cannot really be a dairy product much less cheese. It is a bland, tasteless glop which must be combined w/ something found in nature: mushrooms, onions, etc. in order to have any flavor at all. I'm wondering if it is a citywide phenomenon. Anyone have the same or similar experience w/ pizza which falls outside of a DiFara or a John's league? If so, is there anything that can be done or must we simply accept it as a whole 'nother type of ersatz pizza experience?
