The food sampling operation across 20 fast food outlets in Lancashire also found ham on 10 out of 15 pizzas contained turkey DNA
A trading standards department has revealed EVERY takeaway they investigated in a recent inspection has been selling customers pizzas containing fake cheese.
Officers visited 20 outlets in Lancashire for the food sampling operation and performed tests on ingredients used in hundreds of pizzas sold to customers.
Each premises failed on descriptions of the ham, cheese, or both.
The report revealed 19 out of 20 samples were found to contain analogue cheese - an artificial cheesy substance that is much quicker and cheaper to produce than real cheese.
Inspectors found 10 out of the 15 pizzas that purported to contain ham actually contained turkey DNA.
Four samples that were advertised as containing pepperoni were found to contain species in addition to beef or pork.

I saw Analogue Cheese open for Kraftwerk back in the day...

shocking I’m sure.
Praytell what animal does Pepperoni supposed to come from?
Hope that means chicken!
Pepperoni grows on bushes. Often in the same climate that allows marshmallow bushes.
You know, it’s not all that hard to make pizza from scratch. It tastes a lot better too. Pizza dough and sauce from scratch - close to heaven.
Along the Nile, then?
Whatever happened to fish and chips?
It must be easy to make if they can get it to you so quickly, and very few pizza places actually make bad-tasting pizzas (although sweet sauce is a negative) that it probably would be easy to make at home.
Agree. But is nice to order for delivery sometimes.
I grew out of pizza when I was in my early 20s. Don’t care for it much at all anymore.
Leech pizza is good for you. Starving children in China would love to have those leeches. Now eat yer dang leeches.
It’s very easy to make but to get it out quickly you need pre-made dough. I sometimes whip one up and use a pizza stone to cook it. And you need a really hot oven - one I don’t got.
Americans almost never eat real Mozzarella cheese, which is made from domesticated Italian buffalo, and other breeds of water buffalo. If made from cow’s milk, it is properly called “Fior di latte”.
Yuck E. Cheese.
The Ham is really turkey because the Brit pizzerias don’t want to lose their Halal Muzzie customers.
Crappy cheese puts the kibosh on any Italian food. Don’t even bother with a restaurant that has the grated cheese already sitting on the table in a glass shaker or worse if its a Kraft brand container.
for normal people I guess it’s frozen pizza.
Give global warming a few years, and you will be able to.
Then I can leave the oven door open while it cooks! Great in winter!
I know what you mean about the grated cheese. We have good pizza joints here in NJ but I wouldn’t put that nasty stuff on my pizza.
It is hard to find real cheese in the grocery store too. IF it says cheese food, it ain’t. lol
“I grew out of pizza when I was in my early 20s. Dont care for it much at all anymore.”
I learned how to make my own recently, and really like it. I make a very thin crust and cook it at 450 degrees, Makes the crust crispy that way
I do all kinds of things such as asparagus chicken with bacon and feta cheese.
Or take the chicken and mix it with BBQ sauce and add bacon and mushrooms.
Make my own pesto; that goes great as well.
I don’t like the doughy carb laden stuff that chains make however.
It’s certainly uncontaminated by cheese.
Elsie gonna be mad.
No such thing as a bad pizza or day of golf. Some are much better than others, but they’re all at least ok. Bring on the fake cheese.
Japo-Scandinavian imitation cheese substitute?
“Praytell what animal does Pepperoni supposed to come from?”
Cured pork and beef mashed together.
The one down the way from me used to have cheese “with a kiss of buffalo milk”. It went out of business. I wonder who milked the buffalo.......
Bought a pkg of ‘grated sharp cheese’ from HEB (Hill Country Farms brand). It was fake. Melted down to nothing but oil.
I wonder who kissed the buffaloes?
This is the UK where blood sausage and mashed potatoes are considered high end cuisine. When I went to England after spending a few weeks in France I could not wait to get back to Paris for some real food.
There is a pizza chain (I forget which one) that advertises using “parmesan-inspired” cheese. And that’s not even one of the mystery ingredients.
You don’t consider curry real food?
Wow, a quick google turned up a UK company that advertises it makes “cheese substitutes” including “eezy mozz” fake mozzarella. They say it saves manufacturing costs. I bet it does. Eezy Peezy.
Here is the cheese vendor : http://www.baciocheese.com/
I think the EU has asserted copyright over Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, but not Parmesan. The US FDA also has regulations of what can be called Parmesan.
What about soy based “cheese food products” found in the grocery store?
Dang. I can hardly eat 19 pizzas to get to the good one.
I make my own. Use my bread machine. Easy peazy.
Everyone tells us we should get one. I’ve had some really good bread friends made in their machines.
I love mine. I bought it at Goodwill for $5 many years ago since I wasn’t sure I would use one that much and didn’t want to spend the money on one. I have used the heck out of it. Bread, pizza dough, cinnamon rolls dough........
I even stopped buying store bread about 10 years ago. Three hours on a lazy day
and I can have a weeks worth of bread and rolls including pasta, yes, real pasta.

OH DEAR LORD.... some mad scientist has crossbred porkeys! (or turpigs?)
Pepperoni...It was DECADES between having sampled my first real, cured pepperoni stick when I kid to when I actually found something that came close...I just wish I had more than one choice.
