Chicken Nugget Pizza Is Now A Thing And I Don't Know How To Feel

Chicken Nugget Pizza Is Now A Thing And I Don't Know How To Feel

If you're the kind of person who struggles to choose between crispy fried chicken and an oozingly good deep-dish pizza at the end of a night out, then you're in luck.

Making it a whole lot easier to double down on your junk food, a restaurant has just launched a chicken nugget pizza.

It's cheesy. It's spicy. It's laden with perfectly crisp and succulent chicken nuggets.

Goodbye new year's resolutions for a healthy January.

The doubly delicious creation, launched by pizzeria Crazy Pedro's in Manchester and Liverpool, has proved a hit, with hundreds of people having ordered the 2,500 calorie feast.

Let's talk toppings. As well as a generous serving of crunchy, spicy nuggets to keep meat-lovers happy, the pizza is also crowned with creamy mozzarella dippers.

Spice-lovers will adore the drizzle of 'Hotter Than The Sun' chilli sauce, made from two of the world's hottest chilli varieties - fiery Naga Viper and Carolina Reaper chilli peppers. According to the team at Crazy Pedro's, this is the 'world's hottest pizza'.

They could be right - the Carolina Reaper chilli is currently the hottest in the world, recently surpassing the Naga Viper chilli, which was named the spiciest chilli in 2011 by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Luckily the eye-watering pizza, dubbed 'Everyone Loves BJs' in a nod to Manchester dive bar Bunny Jackson's, can be cooled down with a little creamy chive ranch dressing.

Manager of Crazy Pedro's Liverpool branch Ellie Brothers, 30, said: "It has been really popular, even more popular than other special edition pizzas we've done before.

"I think it's because it has got everyone's favourite foods on it. Everybody grew up with chicken nuggets, so it has probably got a bit of nostalgia to it.

"Even now when I'm hungover I curl up with a box of them. They're unusual on a pizza, but not scary."

But for some chilli-lovers, the pizza's heat proved too much to handle.

"Quite a few people who thought they could handle it struggled," added Ellie.

"The sauce is really, really spicy. It gets you right at the back of the throat."

The fiery nugget-topped pizza costs £10 during happy hour throughout January, or for £2 a slice at all other times.

The limited edition creation is only on the menu until the end of the month - so don't sleep!
