Discworld Pizza

Postby Pat » Sun Apr 09, 2023 07:06 pm

According to The Discworld Companion in its various guises, pizza was introduced to the Disc by Ronron "Revelation Joe" Shuwadhi. In Shuwadhi's entry, he is said to have first appeared in Mort.

But searching the text of Mort shows no mention or Ronron or pizza!

Is he hiding somewhere else in the books? Or was he created for the Companion?
This is my sort of recipe book. "Wrap the pastry in a damp cloth and chill for 20 minutes." Don't mind if I do.

In my hard back copy of Mort it is on page 89 as a footnote.

Many thanks! It seems that my actual physical Kindle doesn't search Mort properly, whereas the Kindle app on my phone is fine. I'll try re-downloading it.

I've switched Kindles and can now search Mort - but I can't search The Last Hero. I presume it's because it's graphic images rather than text.
