Crazy Pedros reveal salt & pepper special | Fri 5 Nov

Salt and pepper chicken. Pizza. Two of life’s greatest and most beloved treat meals. With that being said, combining the two hasn’t necessarily been at the forefront of our minds.

But we’re not as clever as the folks at Crazy Pedros…

The wonderfully eccentric pizza parlour has unveiled this month’s incredible-sounding special. The S&P features salt & pepper chicken, salt & pepper chips, spring onions & peppers, fresh chillies, curry sauce and sesame seeds.

And well…Just look at the thing.
