A PIZZA parlour in Manchester has spoken of their delight after having one of their concoctions included on TIME Magazine’s list of the most over-the-top pizzas in the world.
Crazy Pedro’s, which is on Bridge Street, had their “I Am The ResurrEGGtion” dessert pizza featured amongst 11 other eclectic recipes, in an article on the TIME website.
One of its main ingredients is a Creme Egg, as it was added to the menu as a special over the Easter period last year.
It was listed alongside a pizza that is decorated with the image of the Pope and one with a fried-chicken base.
Speaking about their inclusion in TIME Magazine, a spokesperson for Crazy Pedro’s said: “We’re delighted, and being included in TIME’s 12 craziest pizzas of all time is an amazing accolade and one that we really cherish.
“The pizza itself was a special we had from Easter 2016 and to make the list in 2017, when it is no longer on sale, just goes to show how awesome it is.
“Each month we create a new special for the menu and for that Easter we had the idea to go with a sweet, dessert option and Creme Eggs and chocolate are both big at that time of year.
“Lyndon Higginson [founder of Crazy Pedro’s] is the man behind the specials. Pedro is basically his alter ego.
“It was a very popular pizza indeed which is always encouraging to see, even if it was only on sale for that brief period of time.
“We have new specials on every month and so, for example, this month is surf and turf.”

The list not only highlighted what Crazy Pedro’s has to offer, but also mentioned Manchester alongside famous cities like Singapore and New York.
“We have even seen tourists from New York come and ask about the pizza, then stay and party with us! The food scene in Manchester is booming, and so are our pizza toppings,” they said.
The I Am The ResurrEGGtion was a 10-inch pie covered with chocolate and topped with marshmallows, brownie, meringue and a Cadbury’s Creme Egg.
Crazy Pedro’s opened in 2014. It was originally supposed to be a pop up venture, calling themselves a “part-time pizza parlour,” but the tag remained even after deciding to remain open permanently.
