Restaurant Is Serving A Whole Christmas Dinner On A Thin Crust Pizza

Just when you think you've heard it all on the festive food front, another bizarre creation seems to pop up.

So far this Christmas we've had: deep fried Christmas dinner, the Yorkshire pudding meal wrap, massive pigs in blankets, 'pigs in duvets', Nando's Peri-Peri gravy-based Christmas menu and reindeer meat doner kebabs.

Now we bring you - the Christmas dinner pizza.

The thin crust is topped with candied pigs-in-blankets, roast potatoes, slow-cooked pulled turkey and even Brussels sprouts; surely three quarters of that sounds delicious to most of you?

Naturally, stuffed crust is out with this pizza, and onion stuffing is in - with a sprinkling of sage to top it all off.

'This sounds great, but won't it be a little dry?' I hear you ask. No, no it won't, because the pizza pioneers have not forgotten to incorporate the most important part of Christmas dinner - the gravy.

So, how far will you need to travel to get your hands on a slice of this bad boy?

Well, that depends on how far you live from Pizza Punks in Glasgow.

The restaurant has been serving up the pizzas since the end of November and operations manager, Louise McCabe, said they have been a 'massive hit'.

She said: "One of our really popular dishes is candied bacon, cooked with demerara sugar and maple syrup in the oven.

"We were looking for Christmas ideas, and everyone likes pigs-in-blankets. So we decided to candy them, and we then thought about what else we could do.

"We have put a whole Christmas dinner on a pizza - it is like an edible plate.

"We are trying to do something different. It has been a massive hit so far."

The entire pizza is made on site from scratch and the roast taddies take about an extra 20 minutes in the oven before they're added to the pizza.

As for the ever controversial sprouts, Louise said they're the Christmas pizza equivalent of pineapple chunks.

She said: "Everything seems to be quite predictable at Christmas, it's all turkey and cheesecake.

"This is still in the Christmas spirit, but it's not traditional.

"I don't think I've heard of anything else like it.

"The sprouts are like pineapple on pizza - it's about 50/50 either way."

I'd prefer a pizza topped with coal personally, but then again the dog loves them (and does the most horrific farts all the way through to Boxing Day)... So yeah, 50/50.
