Unusual Pizza Tempts Brandi: What Did She Think?
When someone tells me that there is a food item that I "Have to Try!" I am always willing to do a little research to see if yes, I can be swayed, and then maybe even jumping in with both feet to try something.
One of my co-workers brought to my attention a pizza place in Newburgh that is making outrageous pizza combinations that all start with a Sicilian Garlic Knot Crust. I figured, that I would grab a few of my hungry friends and see if we could get to trying this.
The one that tempted the four of us the most was the one with the Pulled Pork and Macaroni & Cheese on it. Number two would have been the Shrimp Scampi, but majority voting ruled.
When I called, the guy said it would be about an hour, and a mere 35 minutes later the most amazing smelling pizza was delivered. Upon opening the pizza box, the aroma was not the first thing I noticed, but the fact that they needed 3 of those little plastic pizza tables to keep the lid of the pizza from knocking around the toppings. Just seeing that I knew I was in for a different experience.
There were 8 slices on the pizza. I am a person that can normally knock back 2, sometimes 3 slices of pizza, depending on the toppings and my hunger level. On this massive slice, I was one and done. I made sure to grab a second slice to eat the next day before the guys got a hold of it.
The taste, it was really good! On the reheated second day slice, I dipped the pizza into BBQ sauce, but that was the only addition of toppings or condiments. Was I happy to have tried this special creation, Oh Yes! Will I get it again? Probably not. It was so filling and a fun thing to try one time. Next time, I will try to sway the guys into getting the Shrimp Scampi or the Bacon Cheeseburger (which has french fries on it!).
What's the craziest pizza combination you have ever tried? Would you eat it again?
