…Sweden! Sweden of all places!
I am personally offended by the simple fact of where this pizza is from alone and much less horrified by what this pizza looks like (IT LOOKS LIKE FLAT BREAD – where is the cheese and tomato sauce?!) and what is on top of it (everything).
You would think that something as crazy as this would surely be from the states, but then again Pizza Hut did recently create a pizza with a mini hot dog crust. I’m sure there were foreigners around the globe canceling their trips to America just at the sight of this atrocity, but who can resist taking a stab at outdoing us? What can we say? Americans do love to have fun! Who wouldn’t like to have as much fun (and as high cholesterol) as we do? Apparently, not Sweden, because this sure is one heck of a pizza.
I am not sure what the calorie count is on The Vulkan pizza from Nya Gul & Blå, but let me just say this: the price is right. There are much smaller, less wild pizzas in NYC that cost more than this (USD$15), so I think it’s a pretty good deal.
I mean, for six+ toppings – including steak, bacon, pepperoni, salad and fries – including dipping sauces, I don’t think you could ask for much more. Six people could easily split the cost of this for mere dollars and get a filling meal out of it.
I will say that I am a little upset that this is called a “pizza” when in reality it reminds me a little more of a calzone, but I will let this go just because of that low price point.
As a side note, our intention is not to “Columbus” this as the pizza has been around for quite a while. The restaurant started serving it over two months ago, but it only gained mass popularity when a photo of it went up on the pizzeria’s Facebook page and garnered over 13,000 likes and 3,000 shares on Facebook.
Who can deny the appeal of fries on pizza, though? We will chalk it up to that…
