Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza has created pizza cake, a multiple-layered meaty mutant cake as a part of new campaign called “Pizza Game Changers” Customers are invited to vote on which new items they would like to see on the restaurant’s summer menu. At the time of this writing, Pizza Cake is winning. By a lot. It’s beating “pizza mints”, in second place with 2701 votes, and is far more popular than inventions such as the pizza beardkin , pizza cheese clippers or pizza car freshener. I totally get it why pizza cake is winning. It’s a pizza and a cake! What’s not to like? Except maybe calories?


But as always different people have different opinions on pizza cake. The haters use words like fatpocalypse, end of civilization, horror… The others are excited and can’t wait to try it.

I decided to give it a try and create my one version of pizza cake, from scratch. If you want, you can do it too.

For me, there is nothing wrong with pizza cake. You’ve got to have fun with pizza. And about calories?

Well, cut yourself a slice, eat it slowly, enjoy it without gilt and don’t  forget to exercise.

I don’t know how is going to look final version of pizza cake from Boston pizza. But Mel Brooks said about sex and pizza, “even when it’s bad, it’s good”, I think their pizza cake can’t be a flop. So ,don’t be haters, give pizza cake a chance.

    It’s just a Meat Pie but with too many layers of dough. It would be much better if they left out most of the extra dough . Just a top crust on the pie. More layers of fillings. Check out Aussie and English Meat pies.

      This looks like the insert or crock from a small size crockpot. I have a small crockpot and it looks like this. It would be oven safe and the sides are tall etc. Good luck!
