Good/funny news situation for local favorite Biga Pizza. Former Indy editor Ken Picard, who now resides at fellow alt weekly Seven Days in Burlington, Vermont, passed along a link to a story that recommends pizza joints throughout the United States. Seven Days' food editor wrote the Vermont listing and, according to her, the piece was apparently translated into Turkish, then back into English. Good news: Biga gets the Montana nod. Funny news: Google Translate, or whatever was used, isn't perfect.
In honor of tomorrow's annual Indy Holiday Food issue, here's the full Montana write-up:
Bigga Pizza in Missoula features a sourdough crust baked in a cube oven. But it’s the innovative toppings feel favourably impressed by those that frame up the flathead cherry pizza (flavourful prostitution-made Italian sausage, cherry chutney, smoked Gouda, mozzarella, garlic lubricant and parsley) that earn these winning pies. 241 W. duct; 406-728-2579
For the record, "prostitution-made" somehow came from "housemade" and "garlic lubricant," while sounding like something Ari LeVaux would be a big fan of, is actually "garlic oil."
UPDATE: The story originally ran in USA Today on Nov. 4, and was then translated and re-translated on the Turkish site. Oh, and it's "spicy housemade Italian sausage," according to the original copy, which helps explain the prostitution bit, I guess.
