In my youth, I’ve demolished more Bagel Bites than I’ve cared to remember. The idea of combining pizza toppings with the chewy texture of a bagel surface was brilliant and dangerously easy to make.
Now imagine those mouthwatering Bagel Bites from your childhood was hit by Rick Moranis’ giant ray from Honey, I Blew Up The Kid. That’s exactly what the collaboration between two Orange County, CA, restaurants created in this Giant Everything Bagel Pizza.
The massive bagel starts off at Shirley’s Bagels where it is formed, boiled, and topped with ‘everything’ herbs and spices like garlic powder, poppy seeds, and sea salt. Once it’s double-baked in the oven, the giant wheel-sized bagels are delivered to Sgt. Pepperonis where they are sliced in half and loaded with sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.
What results is a masterpiece that equates to about 6 pounds of mouthwatering teamwork.
Competitive eaters Crazy Raina and Freakeating both attempted to eat this giant pizza bagel on Foodbeast’s live Twitch challenge. While both were able to demolish the pizza, Freakeating beat Raina’s time 28 minutes to her 33 minutes.
Hats off to you, sir.
The pizza collaboration will be available through the month of March. If you want to check out more live streams, make sure to follow and subscribe to Foodbeast on Twitch.
