I can’t really put my finger on when I started to be a fan of spicy food but as far as I can remember, it started in my early adult years. Actually, the more I think about it, my contempt for bland food began in the Army which led me to dowse everything with Tabasco. Since then I have ventured far up the Scoville unit scale , turning Tabasco from what used to be a heated nasal enema to mere sprinkles on a sunday. My stomach can probably break down a twelve gauge shotgun shell with little more than a hiccup and taps to the chest. But with this found glory of dastardly concoctions comes a lonely road where no one wants to eat everything I cook for fear of reenacting a Bean-O commercial. I get it. Then there is Halloween with parties and I see a chance to disguise my love as a gimmicky party-food novelty. Oh I have sights for them to see. Let me teach you how to make the Devil’s pizza or how it has come to be known: Hate Pizza.
Okay. First off you need pre-made pizza crust (preferably thin) and coat it in extra virgin olive oil. I, myself, am very particular about the kind of EVOO but in reality it doesn’t matter for this particular pizza. Also, I didn’t make my own crust because when people are eating this they aren’t going to comment about how amazing the crust is but rather wonder if hitting their mouths with a hammer would reduce the burn.
You will also notice those attractive orange peppers known as habaneros. Yes, they are powerful and each one can ruin a night depending on your palate. I add eight of these lovelies and before we mince, I take off the stems because…people eat will eat this you know.
I load up all eight into the ol’ SlapChop and pound the bajeebus out of them until they are finely minced. Also, I add six garlic…things. You know, the whole pieces off the clove? You know what I mean.
That looks pretty inviting, don’t you think? Actually, right after I took this picture the mixture of the over ripe garlic and habaneros combined to almost knock me over. My eyes and nasal passages took a time out and I had to go outside and blindly pace the yard, hoping insult to injury wouldn’t result in dog poop on the shoes.
The sauce. Any good chef knows the magic of a good pie rests in the sauce. I prefer Don Pepino to Ragu sauce. Actually I prefer motor oil to Ragu but that is letting my snippy side out. You will notice that only about 1/4 of the can is used. “But Will”, you ask, “how will only 1/4 of a can of pizza sauce be enough to cover the whole pizza crust?” Good question!
Because I am adding a whole blammin’ jar of super hot Sriracha Hoy Fu Kong sauce! And it is amazing! If you have never been to a Vietnamese restaurant and had Pho or any other dish you are missing out. This is where I fell in love with Sriracha and have been looking for a good cross-dish. And sista’, I have found my medium.
While applying the sauce to the pre-made crust I thought making a devil face would be appropriate. All it ended up looking like was a frog. But it’s an EVIL frog!
We are almost there. At this point the oven is preheating to 475. A whole medium size bag of shredded mozzarella is evenly spread over the pie and the habaneros and garlic follow. But we aren’t quite done yet.
It’s said Lucifer comes as an attractive and friendly character. Slicing one jalapeno, make a smiley face. It’s as if it is saying, “It’s okay. If you don’t like hot foods, you can take off my eyes. Everything will be alright.”
Let’s bake this bitch! The oven is all preheated and I turn the temp from 475 to 425. The average bake time is between 10 to 13 minutes. Maybe different if you are baking this on Mt. Everest. While this bakes, decontaminate everything! The seeds from one habanero can cause the dog to create a family historical event like “The 2011 Ass-plosion Dog/Couch Event”. You need to wash your hands and scrub under the fingernails. Being a spicy food fanatic, there has been many forgetful pee breaks resulting in…milk. I’ll leave it at that.
Those few minutes pass fast and before you know it the house is filled with the aroma of pain. This looks pretty inviting, don’t you think? It’s funny to think this is a vegetarian friendly pie. In my mind, vegetarians always seem so sweet. This must be angry lefty anarchist type of veggie friendly food.
Well, I wouldn’t recommend this for a just any occasion. It’s Halloween and parties need to have one or two novelty food items. This is fun for bets or to show off who can brave a bite of the hottest pizza around. Or, if you have no soul, this Hate Pizza an be used for revenge. Because revenge doesn’t always have to be a dish best served cold.
Apparently people didn’t hate the “Hate Pizza”. A bunch of crazy assholes, says me!
I saw the title and I’m like, “what the hell is hate pizza?” Then I saw the first photo and my asshole puckered up out of the thought of what that pizza would do to it. If I were an xbox, that pizza would surely give me the red ring of hate if you catch my drift.
I got it dude. I am happy to see your zombie came alive again this year.
Yeah, it was wonderful. I finally got a couple of pictures last night too. So I’ll have to throw up a photo-edit on the zomb-posts.
I really want to have a bite of the hate pizza, I’m sure I would love it all the way till my intestines leaked out of my asshole, probably be worth it though.
I too have had an experience with the touching of one’s member after handling spicy foods. I think I shall have to share said story on the blog at some point.
I would eat the hell out of this. I have a feeling it would sting, but not enough to deter me. You used the chicken chopping board. You probably don’t have one with Satan on it.
No Satan one but I used a chicken one to ward off evil spirits. I don’t know life anymore…
Probably best you left out the Ghost Chili… you’re already putting a pretty deadly weapon in the hands of children here…
I am sorry you didn’t get to enjoy seeing someone do their “Major Toht” impression from the ‘Ark Opening’ scene, though… 😉
I hope your lady is feeling better soon- Good Thoughts & Best Wishes.
Oh hate missing that! Aaah!
The ghost pepper isn’t talked about much. That’s the surprise for those who get cocky. Hint: They are located on the edges cause they look safest.
There is no way I could handle this. No. Way. The sauce looks great, and lawd knows I love me some garlic, but that’s about the only part of this I could do.
I have been on internet detox this week. But, now I’m ready to return to the soft glow. The new layout for veggie.tv looks great!! Bring on the holidays. Make ’em spicy. I’m not scared.
I’m still trying to break the wife in to hot and spicy food. She’s up to satan’s potatoes (Instant potatoes made with 1/4 cup of Tabasco sauce in place of like amount of water) but isn’t quite up to my habanero butterscotch ice cream sundaes.
I’ve gotta make me some of that hellacious pizza…
Holy Hannah! Satan’s potatoes?!?! I love it! No water, just Tabasco, eh?
