First things first: stop resisting the taco-pizza.
There’s doubts to be had, yes. Push them aside. Embrace this beautiful, somehow well composed mess.
Hoboken, New Jersey, is home to Tony Baloney’s, a pizza place that decided to venture into taco Tuesday territory in their own way, according to Thrillist. They have decided to do the impossible and place tacos and guacamole on top of a perfectly fine pizza.
It all started with a few stoners, as some of the best things do.
“High as hell… stoned out of their minds,” as owner Mike Hauke described them. They came in with a simple request: put some tacos on that pizza.
People around them took notice and started asking for the same and, “suddenly there was a line out the door for the 30 pound Taco Pizza every Tuesday.”
Oh yeah, did we mention that it’s 30 pounds? Cause it is. And it’s $80 (or $10 a slice) which, if you start doing the math of 2 tacos and a slice of pizza, is kind of a bargain.
The beginning pizza crust is topped with Oaxaca cheese, carne asada, chipotle asada, and, yeah, more cheese. That’s cooked, then bombarded with a variety of tacos on the outer rim and a swimming pool of guacamole and sour cream in the center.
As far as actually consuming the pie goes, Hauke has some tips: Take the tacos off, dip it in the guac, move them around in the carne asada, eat the tacos, and then smear all the guac and sour cream all that good stuff over the pie, and eat the slice.
Yes, pizzas don’t usually come with an instruction manual. Taco pizza looks worth it. Let it happen.
