I am once again reminded today that while I may have enjoyed my jalepeno and pepperoni pizza yesterday, I certainly am not enjoying it today. What with acid reflux, stomach aches, gastro-intestinal pains and yes...you know what else. Kinda reminds me of that Johnny Cash song...What was it.."Ring of Fire" or something like that.

*music*
"..I fell into a burnin ring of fire --
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher,
And it burns, burn, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire."
*end of music*

I think pizza joints and restaurants should have some sort of disclaimer on their spicy pizza that protects them from digestive-challenged patrons :) Perhaps I should buy shares in Rolaids or Pepsid AC, I would probably make some good money! :)

So, what are your most "memorable", or not-so-memorable pizza moments? ;)

Dave.

Pizza with fresh garlic, onions, anchovies, tomatoes, green peppers and chicken. I was up all night with my chest on fire. By morning I was involuntarily relieved of the leftovers. I haven't eaten a pizza since then. In fact that event encouraged me to start eating a more healthy diet.

Hawaiian with shrimp and mushroom.

Innocuous and delicious.

Until some a** substitutes mussels for the shrimps.

I, of course, am violently allergic to mussels.

The only good thing was that the reaction was so fast I had only had one bite.

I love garlic and hot-peppers of any sort. And pizza.

I once inquired of the local pizza joint in a small town if they'd make me a specialty pizza - a garlic and jalapeno pizza. The girl laughed.

When I said I'm serious and began pleading with her she laughed that much harder. I finally got her to take me seriously and as I hung up the phone with the order securely placed I glanced at the calendar on my wall. It was April 1st.

Chicken Roulette

(Serves 6, 5 live)

Ingredients:

3 chicken breasts, chopped into small pieces, but not small enough to swallow in one go.
1 Bottle Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce [davesgourmet.com]
1 jar mild cook-in curry sauce
1 syringe
Oil for frying

Method:

1. Fill syringe with Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce.

2. Heavily inject sauce directly into the centre of 1 chicken piece.

3. Heat small amount of oil in a frying pan.

4. Individually fry the spiked chicken piece until it is sealed. Remove from pan, discard oil and clean pan.

5. Heat fresh oil in frying pan.

6. Fry all the chicken pieces (including spiked piece) until sealed, then proceed with directions on cook-in-sauce jar.

7. Serve hot. For one diner, this will not be a problem.

My fav is a Veggie-Roma. Nice with a wee spillage of Garlic and herb dip. Just don't fancy meat based pizza's at all, and there is usually no problems with after effects.

Spiked Pizza? Now that's crazy...hmmm..I have some "friends" I could try that on. You know, even though I've had "after burn" effect with the pizza I ate...all of this pizza talk is STILL making me hungry! Love everything on pizza except anchovies and olives...everything else goes :) And my favourite hot sauce is "Frank's Red Hot Sauce"...good stuff!

Garlic seems to be a universal favourite here :)

I had the opposite problem last time I bought a so-called spicy pizza. It was bland bland bland. Couldn't even tell there were spices in there and the chilli was non-existant. The other ingredients were boring too. We won't be going back there again.

This is one of the drawbacks of becoming a chillihead - you do desensitise to it over time - and just like any "addiction" you need more and more to achieve the same effect.

My curry of choice is now a Phal; - and although intolerably hot to "normal people", it is one of the healthier Indian restaurant menu choices as it is tomato rather than cream based. Many restaurants don't list it on the menu; but most will prepare one for you if you ask.

Makes you laugh when you see those ready meals in Sainsbury's with 3 pictures of a chilli on the front and "HOT!" in big letters. Yeah, right...

Pizza!

I did a New York pizza tour last year. Fabulous. Went to the oldest most authentic pizza joints I could find- I ate pizza every day for a week.

Pizza!

Second most memorable moment was pulling a runner on a pizza joint when I was a teenager. We had the money, we just wanted the pizza and the thrill of not paying for it.

Pizza!

Shelleycat...I know Exactly how you feel! I mean, if it's not hot, don't list it as hot! A hot pizza to me is one that makes your eyes water and your forehead sweat :)

dmorison...Curry pizza? Never had, but definately a possibility! I no longer used powdered curry anymore. I use the Hot curry paste...it tastes better and is MUCH hotter!

Martinibuster..I take it you like pizza? ;) I must admit..I've never run off with a pizza...and I'm probably too old now to even get kicks out of it. When I was in university I tried about 50 different pizza joints around the city. Man do some places make weird pizza!

Ever had a baked potato pizza? It had potato, bacon and cheddar cheese. Only thing is when I saw it, I didn't realize it had potato on it *gag* Man, did that ever ruin it! Here I was thinking to myself, "Yummy! A bacon and cheddar pizza". Wrong ;)

I've had a smoked salmon pizza too...takes a required taste, but it wasn't too bad! :)

Sadly this was just a crap pizza place. It was the first time we went there but will also be the last. To many other good places to go. Their marketing was really cool too.

We buy Asian Gourmet Spice Pastes for our own curry/chilli cooking at home. They come from Singapore I think and are wonderful. When they put three chilli's on there you know it's really going to work up a sweat. But there's also such intensity of flavours underneath the heat, some places get carried away with the hot part and forget the rest. I haven't tried it on pizza yet though, hmmm.

>> so, did ya get yer pizza?

Yup. My wife doesn't talk to me when I eat it though and you don't want to be in my vicinity after about 4 hours.

>> Frank's Hot Sauce.

I have an alter to Frank in my kitchen.

>> Most fabulous pizza I've had to date was a buffalo wing pizza with artichoke hearts. The wings were made with Franks and had the obligatory blue cheese dressing on them spread all across a white pizza. YUM

Pizza is food of the gods! Well the gods who can't be bothered to make dinner and instead call the local delivery - Olympus pizza or something.

Simply Pepperoni - nothing more. Cooked as a 12inch thin pan and cut so the slices fold to make eating easier. Anyone who eats pizza with cutlery needs a slap! I am so hungry now! - this thread should come with a free slice :)

We are fortunate to live near New Haven which has some of the greatest pizza houses in the US.

I prefer "Pepe Frank-Pizzeria Napoletana". The white clam is to die for.
Others prefer Sally's. Both on Wooster St near Yale.

Worst pizza I ever had was my own creation. Usually alright, but one night ... The wife and kids threatened to leave me is I made another one like that

Lorax...Now THAT sounds like my kind of pizza! My wife is always amazed that I never get sick of eating pizza...and even more amazed how fast I can get through a bottle of Frank's Hot Sauce! Buffalo wings and artichoke hearts eh? Gotta write that one down!

Limbo...I couldn't agree More with you. Pizza is indeed the food of the Gods!

jbinbpt....Your wife a kids threatened to leave you after one of your pizza disasters? Now that is too funny :)

Well gang, all of this pizza talk has made me ravenous. Tomorrow I'm going to go golfing, suck back a few beer and then eat pizza's with my hot sauce. (Will I ever learn? Nah) ;)

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try the Italian Sausage from a local meat market for a pizza. I'd had their Sausage before, and it was very good, but apparently, when I went in, I bought the wrong sausage. It was way too greasy, and tasted awful, and totally ruined the pizza.

But I made more pizza this weekend that turned out fine. Cold leftover pizza makes a great breakfast or lunch.

The only dangerous encounter with a pizza I've had was in Italy. If you're ever eating a pizza there ... keep in mind that the olives on the pizza most likely still have pits in them. Your teeth will thank you.

I saw New Haven mentioned - I grew up there eating pizza and rootbeer at the leaders in pizza like Pepe's, Sally's, Modern, Naples...

now, I'm in Boston and can't get a real slice. I have however, driven two hours to new haven to get some real pizza...

Yes..."whispering" marketing...although my sites have nothing to do with pizza ;) (maybe they should?). I just had pizza again tonight. It had onions, peppers, olives, pepperoni, bacon, pineapple and extra cheese...yummy! And yes, I am a "pizza" guy :) I love the stuff. Would eat it every day if I could!
