People always ask me what’s the craziest pizza I’ve ever had and I’m proud to announce a new contender for the big prize. To celebrate its 7th anniversary, Luzzo’s (211 First Ave in Manhattan) debuted a limited edition 7 Sins pizza earlier this week. It features an ingredient for each of the seven deadly sins. There’s mozzarella for sloth, tomato for envy, caramelized eggplant for gluttony, a drizzle of Barolo wine reduction for pride, walnuts (inside the rolled eggplant) for greed and Nutella with shaved dark chocolate for lust. The whole thing gets topped with a Serrano pepper for wrath. YOWZA!

But how does it taste? I was surprised that such a laundry list of ingredients didn’t get overwhelming or confusing. In fact, my only real complaint is that the Serrano pepper trampled some of the more subtle ingredients. This isn’t the kind of pizza I’d normally order, but it’s definitely a lot of fun to eat!
Get it while it’s on the menu for the next few days… Luzzo’s is located at 211 1st Ave (12th Street).
