Oh, the humanity! Riding on the coattails of the unicorn food trend, New York-based pizzeria Industry Kitchen has introduced an experimental flavour that’s got internet foodies buzzing: the Pop Candy Land Pizza.
Since we’ve been following this multi-coloured madness, we’ve decided to discuss this blatant act of culinary blasphemy. To start, we’ll quote Ellen Scott:
Agreed 100 per cent.
The “pizza” is composed of “rainbow dough, covered in vanilla icing, sprinkles, popping candy, and pink and blue cotton candy,” so it’s basically diabetes on a pan.
How can these people live with themselves?
We get it, you’re creative. And yes, it’s a pastry, not a real pizza. But for the love of everything decent in this world, you just don’t play with people’s emotions like this.
Pizza has a special place in everyone’s hearts, regardless of age, ethnicity, politics, gender, or lack thereof. We’re already living in divisive times. Let’s not make it worse, okay? It’s a thin line Industry Kitchen’s treading here.
“This is a crime against pizza. This is sugar and colour, masquerading as an acceptable dessert, masquerading as pizza,” Scott insisted.
Your thoughts on unicorn pizza? Would you try it or nah?
