Mr EG and I have some friends staying with us for a few days - I made some pizza dough and sauce last night for us to build our own and make our own toppings of which there was a variety of things to choose from - proscuitto, anchovies, a couple of different types of cheese, artichokes, olives, basil, peppers...you get the general idea. Before they had even tasted it, they both asked for salt and pepper (I never put it out on the table) to put on the pizza. I don't mind if people want to adjust the seasoning to their own tastes when they have tried some but I find it quite rude for them to put it on something I spend time lovingly making before even trying it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did point out that there was enough salt in the dough I had made as well as there being seasoning in the sauce as well as the toppings they had chosen to being quite salty anyway but they were very insistent. Then they told me that they thought I had added too much pepper to the sauce and too much salt to the dough! I do remember them adding salt and pepper to their food before they tasted it when we last went to stay with them and when they last came to stay with us but it just makes my blood boil... What are other people's views???
