Creme Eggs on a pizza: Utterly Bonkers or an “eggscellent” idea?.
Some very strange things have been happening to pizza recently. Firstly the internet erupted after the incredibly weird food trend of dipping pizza slices in milk came to light and now, just a month later, another bizarre creation has been born. Behold the Crème egg pizza.
Let me preface this by pointing out that this is not just any ordinary pizza with the Easter treats plopped on top. No, this has been designed from the bottom up. The Fior-egg-tina, as it had been dubbed, is a sweet take on the classic Italian Fiorentina, which is usually made up of a combination of toppings such as spinach, mozzarella, tomato and egg. Each ingredient in this new recipe has now been substituted for a sweeter alternative. Thus the tomato base has been turned into macerated strawberries, the spinach and mozzarella have become mint and mascarpone and finally the eggs have of course been swapped with the Crème variety.
But if you think that it could not get any madder you are sorely mistaken. As in place of the optional Parmesan cheese of the original composition you can, for an extra 50p, choose a generous sprinkling of mini eggs to add the finishing touches to a truly bonkers pizza.
The pizzas — made by Neapolitan pizza specialists Crust Bros — will be available to order from Crust Bros on the Deliveroo website or app from 7 April until 14 April and are priced at £6.45 each. Now that is eggsquisite indeed!
