So, Rosas Pizza in Williamsburg reckons the Aussies have been eating Vegemite wrong for 97 years by spreading it on toast. Giovanni says it's better on pizza!

I can kinda agree with him because for those that don't know what Vegemite is, it's a savoury, salty, black, sticky, very umami flavoured spread. It's sometimes used in stocks to add a flavour profile similar to a beef stock, but for most Aussies we just spread it on toast as a breakfast item.

And you never spread it thick like peanut butter unless you want a heart attack. The thinner you can spread it, the better, just for a hint of umami.

Add sliced cheese on top and grill / broil it and it's an added bonus.

So cheese pizza with a Vegemite spread would be yum and Giovanni could be onto something there!

Sorry, but no. I’m an adventurous eater - no problem w offal, slimy sea creatures, grasshoppers - but one must draw the line somewhere, and I personally draw it at vegemite pizza. 😉

Have you tried Vegemite, Linda?

I actually draw the line at offal, grasshoppers etc so I'm opposite to you. Vegemite is a walk in the park if it's a thin spread. Too thick and it's yuck.

I’m pretty sure I’ve had vegemite (an ex lives in Sydney & I visited him there many years ago). I’ve definitely had Marmite, which I think of - maybe wrongly? - as similar.

And you should try chapulines (grasshoppers) -they’re delicious!

To be fully Australian, don’t they need to put pineapple, beetroot & a fried egg on it?

Yes, Marmite is similar to Vegemite.

Pineapple on pizza....yuck.

Beetroot on burgers.....yum.

Fried egg on anything.....yum.

I tend to think the Vegemite trend won't last. It's too different even though it's a savoury spread. New Yorkers just ain't ready for it!

Ive never gotten a gift with so many instructions on how to eat it. "...and if you still dont like it, try it this way..." - repeated 7 times

I still keep it in case I'll need to build a bunker

Haha, some say you could also use it for axle grease.

Guess what I just had for my breakfast? Wholemeal toast with butter, Vegemite and a fried egg on top! Delicious.

Isn't it also something, or a type of thing, they give people in hard times/famine to prevent starvation? Sort of like spam?
