    Default Would store bought pizza contain these mushrooms (serious question - contains video)

    I realize this is kind of a strange thing to ask, but I need to know if it's likely for a store bought pizza to contain the mushrooms that the pizza did in the video (Ink Cap Mushrooms).

    I'd most like to know today, as I ate a pizza with mushrooms yesterday, and the box didn't say what they were, and I'd like to know because you have to wait 4-5 days or something before you drink alcohol. Does anyone here know if it's likely for a store bought pizza to contain these, I'd really like to know soon (very soon if possible, I plan on drinking tonight).

    i've never seen pizza with mushrooms that weren't champignons

    no one, especially in america, would dare selling products with mushrooms that would kill you if you drank alcohol without informing about it. they would be sued for enormous amounts of money

    Thanks for answering me, just checking this would be the same in the UK right? That's where I am.

    I know I'm sounding like an idiot, but I get paranoid at times, I will admit.

    Yes, I did (not their own, if they have one though - it was Goodfella's if that helps).

    The main topping was pepperoni and churitzos, but it had mushrooms on it as well (I could see them, at least I think they were them, and it said mushrooms on the back, abiet a small-ish percentage).

    Was this the pizza you purchased and then subsequently consumed?

    Now we're getting somewhere. How would you say the mushrooms tasted?

    Ah...

    I didn't really notice if I'm honest, I kind of cooked the pizza higher than I was supposed to, so it... wasn't burnt exactly, but it was crispy enough that you wouldn't know real differences in the toppings (yeah...)

    Also, to Pumpkin: I see your point, and your probably right, but I'm just making sure.

    Hmm. Okay, not to worry. We can still find out in other ways. Ink caps contain a cyclopropylglutamine compound called coprine. So, how did it smell?

    Unfortunately I can't really remember the smell. It was yesterday, and I didn't really take note of the smell, but I don't think that it was anything I haven't smelt before. i.e. there was nothing strange about it...

    Hopefully I'm not forgetting something.

    So you don't think it smelled like coprine? If it didn't smell like coprine you're probably okay.
