True but only because IIRC Arthur Treacher's went out of business. F&C just
weren't that popular.

Now you're changing your order (and Vinnie, our cook, gets mad when people
who do that....). You asked for a veg. pizza, you got one. No meat.
(Unless the vegan in question eschews dairy products, in which case maybe
he/she should opt for Chinese.) AFAIK Papa John has described the original
basic, echt-Neapolitan-via-NYC, pizza. All else is frippery.
