First there was bolognese-gate and now this. Oh Mary, what have you done?
She may be the most beloved baker on telly but she's getting on the wrong side of viewers at the moment.
Last week she horrified fans by adding double cream to her bolognese sauce and now she's made a terrifying confession on her cookery show, Mary Berry Every Day: she's never ordered a take away pizza.
We know. We'll just take a second for the full weight of that statement to sink in.
"I’ve called for my first ever pizza delivery in the form of brothers Tom and James from Dorset, who love it so much they went all the way to Naples to discover the secrets of the very best pizza in the world," the 81-year-old said.
And Welcoming the siblings to her countryside home, she dropped the bomb: "I’ve got a confession, I’ve never had a home delivery of a pizza."

"We were slow getting here but we’ll be quick when the oven’s on," quipped James.
Despite James's best efforts to make light of the situation, viewers found it difficult to overcome the realisation that their hero has never ordered a Dominoes. Or a Papa Johns. Or a Pizza Hut special.

Between her recipe for bolognese sauce and her choice of pizza toppings, I really think Mary Berry would not be allowed into Italy— Paola Gonella (@publishingpaola) 13 March 2017
Mary Berry ordered a pizza for the first time. No Mary Berry, you orderd a pizza oven and 2 chefs.— Rachel Harvey (@RachelJHarvey) 13 March 2017
