Whenever we're I'm too lazy/tired to cook, we sometimes like to play pizza roulette. It works like this: you call up Telepizza or Pizza Gold (the two Nicaraguan pizza places in Masaya) and you request whatever toppings you want. Two times out of three you will get a pizza with missing ingredients, added ham, or both.
This is a pizza we ordered a while ago; we asked for tomato (check) and garlic (missing) but not ham (it came with ham). The default pizza here is ham and ketchup, so we're at a big disadvantage if we want something else. This was a lot more frustrating when I was a vegetarian and was a leading reason why I switched back to eating meat, but it's still annoying now.
It's kind of sad to admit, but one of our favorite restaurants in Masaya is Papa John's... okay, it's our favorite, but there's not much else to choose from! It's a little pricey, but when we're ready to splurge, there's no better use of $15 than a large pepperoni from PJ's. It always comes exactly like we order it arrives right when they say it will on an awesome pizza moto.
