Of course, of course, but using a Pizza example is a way to provide a problem domain of which most of us are somewhat comfortable. A complete set of requirements would be inappropriate for this forum unless they can be indicated with a statement like "provide a data model for ordered items in an order entry system for a small pizza shop".

And if you concept of a pizza place includes selling Neapolitan Ice Cream with toppings, then I'm sure I can learn something from the way you would model that too. So, I can accept some human interpretation of the situation in order to keep the requirements statement short.
