You might like wine or beer with your pizza, but have you ever had wine or beer on your pizza? Salvatore’s Pizza in Boston has a new pizza that is just for adults only called the Virnola Cherry.
This pizza features fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, prosciutto, orange blossom honey, and the main event: Bing cherries marinated in raspberry vodka.
According to the Boston Herald, the alcoholic pizza started when corporate chef Victor Paone and vice president of operations Peter Ackerman began to experiment with some of the ingredients…and thus the Virnola Cherry was born.
This pizza is becoming so popular, that the pizza parlor has plans on releasing two more versions of this booze-soaked pie! According to deathandtaxesmag.com, the next two pizzas to come out are The Drunken Pig, with Kahlua-marinated braised pork and The Calabria Peach, with rum-infused fresh peaches.
CNN posted a video about the boozed pizza and shows that the alcohol does not bake off in the oven. Once the chefs figured that out, they ran with the idea of an alcoholic pizza.
