Pizza Toppings
Specify the toppings that you would like on your pizza. In general, pizza toppings consist of a choice of sauce, cheese, meats, and vegetables. The sauce and cheese choices have well-known defaults, and need not be specified unless alternatives are desired. You may specify well-known combinations by their common name. Alternatively, you may specify a set of toppings and then explicitly subtract undesired toppings from the set. The crust type is not specified here.
The pizza shall be topped with the set of all vegetables minus olives. All other parameters shall maintain their default values.
Specify your desired beverage. Your choice should take into account the need to comply with state and local regulations regarding driving motor vehicles while under the influence of alcoholic beverages. Indicate ice preference and cup size. If you would like anything on the side, specify that.
The beverage shall be served in a 16 ounce cup. The contents shall be soft drink with ice. A single slice of lemon shall be served on the side.

In chipping away, the third step is to combine the parts of various sample answers into one answer that you will keep. Make changes to anything that does not sound right. Or, write new text using the sample text as a guide.

In the blue text appoach, the third step is to carefully reread the blue text and make sure that you have addressed all needed aspects of it in your text. There really is no guide to how you should phrase your text, so a lot of time can be spent on details of writing that have little to do with the real decision. In fact, it is very easy for developers to mistake formal language for real precision. That can result in documents that are needlessly hard to read and maintain.
