You’re headed out to a restaurant for dinner. It’s been decided you’ll visit an establishment with Kosher pizza. You’re not Jewish, and you’ve never eaten there before. You’re wondering what to order to go with your Kosher pizza.
Unless you’re a true foodie, or some sort of pizza aficionado, you won’t really notice much of a difference between regular pizza and Kosher pizza. The main difference is that meat and dairy won’t appear on the same pizza—or even in the same meal, for that matter—when Kosher pizza is served at a Kosher restaurant.
That said, Kosher Jews use a specific cheese product in place of regular cheese. When it is combined with the tomato sauce and seasonings on a pizza, it’s not easy to tell the difference.
So what does go with a Kosher pizza? The answer to that is simple: many of the things that go nicely with any pizza at all. You might order a salad with your Kosher pizza. Consider ordering a basket of breadsticks for the whole table. Veggies and hummus make a nice appetizer to have while your pizza is baking, and they don’t add too many calories to your meal.
Some patrons of Kosher pizza restaurants believe the pizza in itself is plenty to eat, so they simply order a beverage to accompany it. Don’t worry that it’s a huge deal to indulge in Kosher pizza with your Jewish or non-Jewish friends. Just check out the menu and see what sounds good!
