Manchester has been an innovator over the years in a vast swathe of fields, from smashing the shit outta the atom, to perfecting Graphene and creating the world’s first proper club – our small city has always been at the forefront of many movements.

Well, we’re also innovators when it comes to food, and nothing proves this as much as the humble Hog Dog Pizza – something that has been jumped on by the ‘big boys’ and supposedly selling like hot cakes ever since.

But try as they may, Dominos and Pizza Hut can’t compete with us lot here in Manchester – and more specifically – the talent team of people over at Crazy Pedro’s.

The original and STILL best, Pedro’s World-Famous Hot Dog Pizza comes loaded with their secret weapon. The one thing that sets Pedro’s apart from anywhere else – the ‘Beer Soaked Frank’.

Joining these boozy chunks of hotdog is American cheese, crispy onions, French’s mustard and ketchup – creating a meal that combines two of the best American foods you can find.

So next time you’re in Pedro’s – give a thought to this veteran pizza – once that’s weathered many years and umpteen menu changes. Still the original and still the best.
