One of my favorite new shows is Man vs Food on the Travel Channel. I wish I had his job! I don’t know where you sign up for such a position, so I’ll just watch the show and dream. 🙂
One of his challenges is to tackle the Carnivore Pizza with a friend. (Here’s a commercial for that episode.) The pizza comes from Big Pie in the Sky, a New York style pizzeria located in Kennesaw, GA.
There’s a video on the restaurant’s website which shows the pizza being made and describes it. It also shows two guys being defeated by one pizza. (Click here.)
If you didn’t watch the video, here’s the awesome details. The pizza is 30″ in diameter and weighs about 11 pounds. There is about a pound of each of the following meats: Pepperoni, Beef, Italian Sausage, Ham, and Bacon.
The restaurant will give you $250 if you and a friend can finish it in one hour. So far no team has been up to the task. A few people have eaten their half, but the challenge is still unbeaten.
I’d like to attempt this, but to eat 5 1/2 pounds of meats and pizza crust in an hour, I don’t think that’s happening. Back in high school, I’m fairly sure I could’ve eaten my half. These days, I think my metabolism has stopped completely (I sure miss it!). I can still eat a lot, but it takes more work to burn it off. That said, I would still like to try this challenge.
