How do you put Cheese and Tomato on it? Do you create an instance of
Cheese and an instance of Tomato and then say

pizza hasTopping cheese1
pizza hasTopping tomato1

The only solution I can come up with is using nominals

So I would say

pizza1 rdf:type Pizza

pizza1 rdf:type hasTopping some Cheese and hasTopping some Pizza and
hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)


{pizza1} subClassOf hasTopping some Cheese and hasTopping some Pizza and
hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)


pizza1 rdf:type Pizza
cheese1 rdf:type Cheese
tomato1 rdf:type Tomato
pizza1 hasTopping cheese1
pizza1 hasTopping tomato1
{pizza1} subClassOf hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)

Either way I close off the topping allowed for the pizza by making the
class {pizza1} a subclass of hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)
