Do you dare try the UK’s hottest ever pizza? Counter staff at the Morrisons in Cleethorpes will be serving the ‘Hotter than Hell’ pizza featuring one of the world’s hottest chillies.
Created especially for Halloween, it is believed the team at the store on Hilmore Road have made the hottest supermarket pizza ever made in the UK.
The extremely hot pizza is priced at £2.60 for one, and brave or foolish customers can buy two for £4.
The pizza is aimed at chilli lovers who get a kick out of the heat, but for others it will be a painful eat.
The British Naga chilli, which is featured on the pizza, has a Scoville rating of up to one million – 200 times spicier than Tabasco sauce, 200 times hotter than a Jalapeño, and up to seven times fierier than a Vindaloo.
The toppings include:
- Spicy pulled steak
- Spicy chicken
- Jalapeño pepperoni
- A chilli cheese crumb
- Crushed chillies
- Naga chillies
To shield themselves from the chillies, Morrisons pizza counter colleagues will create the pizza under strictly controlled conditions, wearing protective gear.
John Saywell, Store Manager at Morrisons Cleethorpes said: “A few of our customers who are chilli fans have been telling us that they don’t get the extreme heat they’re after when eating regular pizzas, so we thought we’d make something for Halloween with more of a kick.
“We’ve worked with our British chilli grower to grow these extreme heat chilies – and our pizza counter staff are now on standby in their protective gear to make the pizzas up.”
