Kosher Jews sacrifice a lot in order to keep Kosher. And while it’s assumed all do so willingly, it no doubt makes life difficult at times.
Did you know that Jews who keep Kosher not only can’t eat meat and dairy at the same meal, but that they must also keep plates, pots, pans and utensils that are separate? That means entire sets of each—one that’s for meat and yet another for dairy.
On top of that, Kosher Jews must have two dishwashers in their kitchen. You guessed it. There’s one for dairy plates, utensils and cookware and another for those used with meat. In addition to this being rather expensive, it’s a space issue for many. Imagine fitting a second dishwasher into your kitchen. You’d likely have to build a custom kitchen or give up valuable cupboard space.
When life gets complicated, it’s nice to have an option—even if it’s just a once in a while option—that takes the complication out of every day living. One such option for Kosher Jews is the availability of Kosher pizza. Until the past couple of decades, Kosher pizza was only available in big cities with significant Jewish populations. These days it has made its way to cities in many of the 50 states.
Instead of worrying about placing the meat dishes in the dairy cupboard or dishwasher, Kosher Jews can enjoy taking a break from kitchen duty altogether. They can visit their local Kosher pizza restaurant and order a delicious pie. Not cooking and not having to keep their own Kosher kitchens for one evening—plus the advantage of eating a veggie-laden pizza—eases life’s complications, even if it’s only once in a while.
