Just when I thought I’d tried the best pizza recipes in the world, just when I thought there was no possible way I could eat anything more delicious, just when I thought I could never experience a better sweet-salty combo…
THIS. Tequila Lime Pizza
. HAPPENED. And my life is once again forever changed.
A little birdy told me about this pizza (OK, it was my editors at Tablespoon) and at first I was all, “Mmm, OK, that looks and sounds pretty tasty.” Then I actually went for making my own version at home and while making it I was all, “Mmm, OK, this smells kind of amazing.” And then it was all made up and ready for the eatin’ and I took one bite and was all, “MmmOMGkajgoihwekdghalgahhhhhhhh!”
(That’s code for: It’s really freaking good.)
People – can I describe for you (in better terms than the gibberish above) how insanely delicious the combo of salty shrimp and crumbled bacon is with sweet, lightly toasted coconut flakes and fresh mango atop a bed of savory and citrusy tequila-lime white sauce all baked on a bed of melty mozzarella cheese and whole grain pizza crust is?
Actually, that’s a pretty good description. But my point is, only until your mouth experiences this pizza can you truly understand the wonder and magic (and did I mention deliciousness?) that is this recipe. It defies reason and yet makes sense all at the same time. It’s unique and yet so simple. It’s a glimpse into the future of Pizzadom and we can have it right here, right now. And dudes and dudettes, it’s got tequila on it. ‘Nuff said.
I encourage you to go out on a limb, take a risk and try this pizza, but only if you’re prepared for it to rock your world. If not, stick with the boring old cheese or pepperoni pizza. But you’re missing out – ON THE FUTURE. The tasty, tequila-limey, cheesy, sweet and savory future.
