Minneapolis Chef Creates Blood-Soaked Slayer Pizza
Looks like a bloody good meal! Minneapolis chef John Hurkes, who works at the Bulldog N.E. restaurant, has created this devilish Slayer pizza.
You can't crush folks in the pit on an empty stomach, which is why metal and food go together so splendidly. GWAR understand that sentiment with their annual GWAR-B-Q and signature BBQ sauce, as do the fine people at Chicago's Kuma's Corner, who are constantly naming menu items after metal bands.
In this case, Hurkes has come up with the Slayer pizza. It may look grim, but the ingredients will make you drool. The Slayer pizza is an concoction that includes chopped Fra Mani toscano, soppressata, finocchiona, Cypress Grove “Lamb Chopper” cheese, house marinara, signature communion wafer crust, and an altar wine gastrique. Have we got your attention, foodies?
The Slayer pizza's tasting notes from Rice and Bread Magazine describe the tasty experience in a way all metalheads can appreciate:
Behold, the Slayer pizza. A vast sadistic feast, the only way to eat it is going piece by piece. The flour was stone ground from 350 communion wafers and kneaded together on an altar of sacrifice. It’s baked at a chilly 400 degrees and finished as the communion wafer crust starts to burn. These delicious ingredients were almost all purveyed from California, where it is said that thrash metal has its roots. As the pizza is sliced and “Angel of Death” is unleashed, you will scream along with the first taste. The smooth tang of the sheep’s milk cheese is offset in quintessential madness with the handcrafted salami. Like Jesus on the cross, heavy guitars rip through meat and cheese, exposing the unholy red sauce underneath. With the whirlwind beating of drums and those classic Slayer riffs, the pizza is soaked with a torrential altar wine gastrique. Raining blood from a lacerated pie! It should take just under 30 minutes to finish, and with six and a half years worth of communion bread servings you might want to share it with your friends.
Blood splatter never looked so appetizing!
