Let me start with this quick note:
(*I am allergic to cheese).

I went to Wal Mart yesterday. Not a chore I like, but someone has to do it and I guess that has to be me.

I was nearing the end of my shopping trip when I noticed a young woman taking these small pizza's out of the refrigerated case. I thought to myself,'I wish they had a pizza crust without the cheese.' I have soy cheese at home, and maybe, just maybe I could make my own personal kind of pizza.

I looked in the case and saw a hamburger meat pizza. I started reading the ingredients. Wow, it had fake cheese in it. A soybean product.

By now I am in pizza heaven. And, it is only $1.68, you can't beat that. Yes, I bought one!

I rush home and turn the oven on to preheat to 450*. I was so excited I did that before putting all my refrigerated items away. I was so excited, that after putting away the groceries, I pulled up my desk chair in front of the stove to watch the pizza through the glass oven door.

All of this may sound a little bizarre to those of you that can readily eat anything they want, but this is a treat that I have not had for over 35 years because of my cheese allergy.

I was so excited that after I had eaten the pizza, I called my Sister in Nebraska to tell her about it. She had to call me back, a grandson had stopped by to visit.

While I waited on her call me back, I started to have a headache. I took some aspirin, but that did not seem to help. I was concerned about my headache, so I decided to read the pizza box ingredients. Down at the very end was the word cheese cultures (0.2%). Hardly enough to bother a normal person, but then again, I am not normal. emoticon

I then realized that my headache would not be going away anytime soon.

My Sister called back an we had a good laugh at my not reading the label more carefully. And of course the whole pizza had 720, that's right 720 calories. Yes, of course I ate the whole thing. And, by the way, it was delicious.

I have had an allergy headache all night long. Was it worth it? (YES). Will I do this again anytime soon? (NO WAY.)

Color me HAPPY? I have had a pizza.

    I'm glad you could indulge a little, but sorry you had to suffer.

    Did you know that you can get pizza dough where the Pillsbury rolls are sold? Yeah, in those little tubes, they also sell pizza dough. A small jar of sauce, your soy cheese, and whatever other toppings you want (Mushrooms perhaps?) and you can actually enjoy this more often.....but split the next one with someone, or refrigerate it for another day. Don't want you to overdo it.

    I'm glad that you enjoyed your pizza, but I'm sorry about your headache. Sometimes, it's worth it to do eat sometimes it's worth it to eat something unhealthy just for the pleasure of eating something that you enjoy.

    So glad you enjoyed the pizza, but sorry about the headache. Sometimes we just can't help ourselves. LOL I guess you'll remember to read the label next time. Funny (in a way) how we learn from our mistakes. I hope your doing better today. ((Hugs))

    They tell us on Spark to read the full nutrition label before we buy. I guess they are right. Glad you enjoyed the Pizza. Sorry about the after effects.

    I guess I can't imagine wanting something that would make me feel sick. I'm glad you enjoyed it going down, and I am guessing you won't do it again. Headaches are the worst!
