Pizza Express reveals halal meat used in all chicken dishes (UK pizza chain)
Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 8:17AM BST 07 May 2014 | Padraic Flanagan

Pizza Express is serving ritually-slaughtered halal chicken in every dish on its menu that uses the meat, it has emerged, but customers are only told that the chicken they are eating is killed in line with strict Islamic law if they ask staff, as it is not stated on menus.

Under Islamic law, chicken can only be eaten if the bird’s throat has been slit while it is still alive. A Koranic verse is also recited during the ritual.

Some non-Muslims object to halal because they claim the method of slaughter can cause unnecessary suffering. …

How would you know?

Does throat cut live chicken taste different that chopped off head chicken?

I bury bacon bits on an islamic pizza dough...just for spite.

So what exactly is halal anyway? I could be crude and suggest something about a chicken and in Imam or something, but that would be wrong. :o)

FWICS, “halal” is food over which Allah’s name has been invoked. Don’t know for sure if that means Christians can’t eat it, since there is an injunction against eating food dedicated to idols in the New Testament.

That’s certainly it’s own kettle of fish.

I once pointed out that factory farming is communistic in its origin. Some FReepers seemed to hold to the notion that it is not and rather capitalistic in nature, even in spite of the fact that its rise coincided with the transfer of farms from unsubsidized independent family operations to government-subsidized “agribusiness”.

I just had a pizza delivered. I doubt that they have any clue as to what halal means, as their are no Muzies here.

Love Pizza Express, though.

It seems to be almost identical to the methods used to slaughter kosher animals, except for the prayers.

What I don’t get is the pizza chain is saying to hell with their non-muslim customers by ONLY serving this halal throat slit slaughtered meat. I’m sure Christians would find that offensive and would never eat it. I cannot believe there is no outrage over this as well as the Subway slap in the face last week in the UK doing the same thing taking ham and bacon off their menu and replacing it with this halal meat crap. Anything that is prayed over with allah akbar I find offensive as it reminds me of the Americans that died by these savages.

you’re still supporting this company? I’d be picketing outside their store with an angry mob and make sure I was armed to the hilt for the oncoming muslim outrage and wait for them to attack which they will.

Oh, dear boy, I should have pointed out that I am on the other side of the world, 12 hours away. Oh, it was pineapple pizza, delivered by guy on motorbike. 120 pesos ($3 including tip). I doubt that they have any clue about “this company”.

Oh ok you said you just ordered a pizza (which I assumed you meant from them) and was sure the delivery guy probavbly wouldn’t know what halal is. Heck if you were in Mexico, there should be no reason anyone would have to know what halal is unless there is a huge luslim population there which I doubt.

Sorry for the confusion. I am in the Philippines.
The pizza shop is not so far from me, but for three bucks, including tip, it is not so bad, even for a little 10 inch pineapple pizza. Nobody here would have any clue about “halal”.

When you said pesos I had no idea you’d be in the philippines. Never knew their currency was based on the spanish peso.

I know nothing about Pizza Express. Our Pizza shop is called Albertos. It is quite convenient if wife is too tired or busy to cook. She calls, and it is here in 30 min. or so.
As for Pesos, The Philippines was under Spanish rule for many years, so that explains “peso”. All of the Roman Catholic churches built during the Spanish era are 300+ years old.
Every town has one. There are a few protestant churches, but they are a very small minority.

All of Islam is evil.

Period.

And sooner or later we’ll have to do something about it.

I love pizza too much to let something like Muslims take over as to what they cannot serve. I cannot imagine eating a NY/NJ style pizza with halal meat instead of regular pepperoni. I would go balistic!

As someone else said, Halal is simply a Muslim rip off of the Jewish tradition of slaughtering livestock and poultry. I’m old school and would never, ever eat a pizza with chicken, beef or ham on it.

Pizza Express is a British pizza chain that serves good pizza. When the food in London was so bad in the past, you could always count on Pizza Express for nice food. Of course, the food now in London is wonderful.

What about pepperoni though? That’s old school, but according to them only halal meats would be used and I’m guessing that would also include pepperoni.

Of course, pepperoni. I don’t happen to like it but my husband smothers his pizza in that stuff. I just don’t like those little shoe heels stuck on my slice!
