That's why it kills me when people get all wrapped up around "It's not TraDITIONal!" Lol Who cares? They made it because it tasted good. If you find a way to make it taste BETTER, then GO for it! What else is the point?? lol...

Same here. Same with the word "authentic". I really don't care as long as it tastes good and to a lesser extent I worry about how healthy or unhealthy it is. I've been to China and tasted "authentic" Chinese food there and to me Americanized Chinese food taste better. That's just my own subjective opinion but I do know that being authentic or traditional isn't going to be a factor on whether I like the food or not.

I enjoy some Americanized Chinese food, and some of our "Chinese" is unlikely to be found anywhere in that country. That's fine. What I do not like is the fact that some places use waaaaayyy too much sugar, particularly in dishes that are supposed to be spicy-hot. Interestingly, the worst offenders seem to be restaurants that have two menus: one authentic and one Americanized. I always stick to the authentic stuff in such establishments.

Leftovers on pizza? I guess it depends on what. A little leftover chicken or sausage, sure. Cooked vegetables, not so much. I think they'd be cooked to mush by the time the pizza was done.

I don't like the sugary Chinese food, either. I came to realize after ordering a few things that the place nearest me, which a friend of mine loves, has a base of non-Chinese mixed vegetables, like green peppers and carrots and those mini ears of corn, and then they just throw whatever else you ordered on top. So if you are having chicken, you get chicken with that vegetable mix. If you order shrimp, you get shrimp with that same vegetable mix. I like kung pao chicken or shrimp, which is supposed to be mainly peanuts and little dried hot peppers, but when I ordered it there, I got that vegetable mix with a few peanuts thrown in and some hot sauce sprinkled on it. It all pretty much tastes the same no matter what you order.

Now how did I get there in a thread about pizza? LOL.

Throw the Chinese veget mix on the pizza!

Leftovers can be used on pizza, in soups and stews, and in omelets.
