What The Hell Was That?

As I've mentioned, I'm giving up dairy, so I made my last pizza last night. Of course, it being the last one, I finally got it right. (Anybody needing tips for making pizza with Chebe bread, I'm the boy to ask.) But I spent the evening more keyed up than I've been since quitting gluten almost two years ago. All the well-known stuff: e.g., I didn't get a joke and spent the whole evening beating myself up about it. Standard social anxiety fare.

The thing is, it was exactly the same pizza I'd made last Thursday with no adverse reactions other than the usual mega-pooting. I did put on more mozzarella (had to use it up after all) and maybe more pepperoni. It's Hormel turkey pepperoni. I didn't see any MSG in the ingredient list. Could it have been the nitrites? I'm stumped. Obviously, it's not a high priority question, as my pizza days are behind me, but I'm still curious. Any thoughts?

Nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, potatoes)? Also for me, I experience the anxiety and panic attacks from Soy almost as badly as I do with gluten.

I certainly hope not. Anyway, I never had the problem before, including making an identical pizza five days earlier. The only difference is that I cooked it longer, so if there's anything nasty in there that only comes out if the ingredient is cooked (or in the case of the pepperoni, overcooked), that would be it. Otherwise, nothing weird at all. The last time this happened it was a caffeine dealio when I made breakfast bars with chocolate chips in them and got so amped I had to give the rest away. Maybe I'm allergic to baking.:)

Regardless, thanks for the reply.
