I saw an article that said a pizza place in Boston was making alcoholic pizzas. They soak cherries in rasberry vodka and then put them on the pizza. Since they only put it in the oven for 7 minutes, the alcohol doesn't have a chance to burn off. You have to present proof of age before they will let you have one. What do you think? Would you eat an alcoholic pizza?
This is the article:
BOSTON (CNN/WCVB) - You may like to have beer or wine with your pizza, but have you ever had alcohol on it?
Salvatore's, a Boston pizza parlor, is serving up a new type of pizza with the alcohol-infused toppings.
"How do we jazz the pizzas up and how do we make them fun. Somebody said let's put booze on them. And I'm like... that would be kind of cool," said Chick Barbato.
And so their Vignola cherry pizza was born, which comes topped with fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, prosciutto, honey and the main event: raspberry vodka-soaked cherries.
"We do macerate cherries for quite some time with the raspberry vodka. That becomes a pretty prominent flavor so it doesn't burn off in the oven," said Barbato.
Seven minutes in the oven isn't enough to make this pizza virgin, which is why they card customers who order it just to be safe.
"Too much would be like 2 to 3 pizzas worth. So I think you'd be pretty full before you got a buzz," said Barbato.
The pizza place says the adults-only pizza has been so popular, two more versions will be launched next month - one with Kahlua-marinated pork and another with rum-infused peaches.
