Animal rights organisations have launched a furious attack on a London restaurant who is serving frog legs as a topping in the pizza menu. Would you eat a pizza containing frogs? No I would not! Would you?

I have eaten frog legs once, not on the pizza though. I must say they taste almost like rabbit, if you had that one or more usual chicken. You just have to deal with the fact its frog and that it looks funny lol. As for animal rights organizations, I see no reason why would they object frog meat more then chicken for example. And they dont attack every restaurant serving those, do they?

I would be joining the animal rights on this one for sure, frogs are one of my favourite animals and it's upsetting that a restaurant can be so hardfaced and uncaring to do this, they must have known it would antagonize the animal rights organization as well as other animal loving person. Ewww and I certainly wouldn't touch it either, sounds disgusting.

Frogs are bred by people nowaday like pigs and cows so I don't think it's anything wrong with that pizza. I think there must be some human right organization to protect our right in eating. In China almost every restaurant serves frog as food and it's delicious. Ones can't stop others doing something due to their own taste.

Hi there ronaldinu Yet another story I haven't heard but it doesn't sound very appetizing to me so I think I will pass on that one and stick to chicken and mushrooms!!

I have heard that frogs leg are very good but I myself have never had them. I do like pizza alot but I think I would have to stick to more traditional toppings. I don't think I could get myself to eat it with legs on it.....yuck!

Frog legs are served in certian parts of this country as a meat, if you can eat them by them selves why not on pizza? What do the animal rights people want to do serve the whole frog?

I dun think it's anything wrong with that.. MOst chinese resturants and even coffee shops are serving that as a dish.. And it's legal, so what's the big deal about it?? PLus, frog legs are not considered to be a delicacy or what.. IF it's really talking about animal rights, all the more sausages and pork should be banned because they do not poullute the environment, but yet humans just like to use them for all kinds of experiements..

I don't really see why people would care about this. I mean, I don't know anything about how the frogs were harvested or if they were taken or hunted or bred, but what makes them any different from any other animals we eat? We do have to eat meat, we're omnivores, but I guess new things have a tendency to scare people. I don't think a lot of frogs would have to suffer anyway, because I don't think every customer is going to want it. It might be more normal in France, but not London.

ew! i cannot stand frogs, let alone eat them! yuck. :( but i totally think it's stupid for these activists to get so upset about serving frog's legs on pizza. i agree that it is basically the same thing as chicken wings or sausage or whatever. as long as something is not being killed just for fun and people are actually using it for food, well then that is what God provided us animals for! sometimes i think these animal rights people go a bit too far...

I would not eat frog pizza, but then I am not French. I do not think a Frenchman would eat it either, but I heard it tastes like chicken. Most pizzas I know contain either pepperoni, ham, or ground round. I would suppose they took the bones off, and removed the skin. I doubt they would just place the frog leg bone in on top of the pizza dough and covered it with cheese. It does sound interesting. I wonder what it tastes like. hmm

Personally I wouldn't eat one - but we have to remember frogs' legs are eaten in France all the time and it's quite normal - so there's nothing particularly surprising about them being used as a pizza topping. Same as with snails - they'd make a nice pizza, too!

Why? Frogs legs have been eaten everywhere for some time, for many years. The next thing you know they'll have us all being vegetarians and eating no meat. I love my veggies, don't get me wrong. I don't eat much meat but I do like it when I want it. I wouldn't eat that pizza...no way. But there are people that would, obviously.

To me it sounds disgusting but I know my daughter ate them when she was in France. However, it was only after she had eaten some that she decided to ask the waiter what she was eating. As soon as she discovered she was eating frogs legs, she pushed her plate to one side. I don't know why the animal rights protestors don't attack the restaurants which serve prawns legs and crab legs, both of which I like. I think some people are always just looking for something to protest about.

Of course I won't have pizza with frog leg. I think that is disgusting. Having frog leg as pizza topping is the craziest food I have heard. Are they run of idea for pizza topping until have to choose frog leg. Why cant' they use something eatable as topping. I will never eat pizza like that in my whole life.

Okay, well that just ruins my appetite for pizza, lol.. well it doesn't but I definitely wouldn't be eating any frog legged pizza. I just wonder about that, I mean, ew?? Oh and how did they cut it up so it was edible?
