Chippy Tea Pizzas Are Here To Make All Your Dreams Come True
The pizza has come a long way from its humble dough, tomato and mozzarella origins.
In 2019, the Italian classic has taken on a whole different form with companies chucking anything and everything on to a dough base and calling it a pizza, from avocado to bananas and actual mini burgers (we're looking at you, Dominos).
Now, one bar in Manchester has taken things to the next level by creating the Chippy Tea Pizza - and it's a northerners dream.
Themed on a typical northerner's dinner, the 16 inch pizza from Crazy Pedro's bar comes topped with chip shop ships, sausages, mushy peas and curry sauce. One thing's for sure, its certainly indulgent...
But like it or not, the no doubt blasphemous-to-Italians creation is now one the bar's most popular menu items.
Crazy Pedro's marketing manager Nick Coupland, 28, from Salford, said: "It is pretty much a classic northern dish - fish and chips and curry sauce and mushy peas.
"I think initially the northern credentials were the reason this pizza did well, but after that was just because people tried it.
"Now it is one of our most popular items, it goes down really well."
He adds: "It is comfort food, we are the only place that serves pizza like this until 4am in the morning, and it is just what you want at 3.30am."
Nick says that although it's now a hit, the bar did have people who were initially unsure what it was, and questioning "how the mushy pea base would work."
The pizza was originally available on rotation but an uproar on social media when it was taken off the menu prompted the bar to make it a permanent fixture.
But it's not for those watching their figure: the carb-heavy offering contains over 2,000 calories! Best shared then, eh?
Punters can buy the Chippy Tea Pizza for £16 or £10 during happy hour.
Nick says the pizza was born out of a desire to fuse different meals, and adds that Crazy Pedro's - who have two branches in Manchester and Liverpool - has plans to launch experimental vegan meals.
Battered nut roast burritos, perhaps?
