Imagine going out for pizza and seeing zebra as an option for meat. I would think it was a joke, but nope, it is definitely not a joke.
A pizza joint in northwest Britain is the country’s first to offer zebra meat as a topping—and not only is it legit, it’s on menu that also includes buffalo, kangaroo and crocodile. “The main thing I get from customers now is that they don’t believe that I am serving real zebra meat,” Arash Fard, the owner of Yummy Yummy Italia, tells the Lancashire Telegraph, adding that he sells about 20 zebra and croc pizzas weekly.
“Most of our zebras are sourced from game parks in South Africa where they are in over supply.
Zebra meat is popular in South Africa and is normally eaten as burgers or steaks.
Glad to hear that Zebras aren’t endangered species. Animal rights activists are probably going crazy over this zebra pizza, but it is an animal that is normal to eat in another country. I don’t think I’d ever try zebra on my pizza unless I went for a late bite after a long night of drinking… but it is definitely exotic!
