Everyone knows that heading down the chippy for your tea is probably the best thing in the world. Whether you’re a fan of the traditional fish & chips, a sucker for a battered sausage or just want to wolf down the biggest portion of chips and gravy imaginable – it truly is the King of Teas™.
Back home as a kid we were spoilt for choice when it came to chippies. We had 2 belters within a 3-minute walk of our house – and those Fridays when me mam couldn’t be arsed to cook so she’d send me down with a list while she buttered some Warburtons bread were brilliant.
Well, you can re-create all of these wonderful memories – both emotional and food-related at Crazy Pedro’s because they’ve managed to combine the brilliance of a visit to the chippy with the sheer artistry of pizza. I present to you… The Chippy Tea.
First of all, let’s talk about the base. Yes, it’s green. Yes, it’s MUSHY PEAS!
None of that rubbish tomato stuff around here – those red little losers have no place in an English chippy (not even in a sauce) so they’ve done away with them for good.
So you’ve got a mushy pea base – off to a winning start. They then add cheese, CHIPS, sausage and a final sprinkling of cheese before it’s shoved into a piping hot oven to melt and cook and get all sexy and that.
Once it’s done it’s pulled out and then the final ingredient is added – and ingredient that transcends cultures, race and even science… Chip Shop Curry. Fuck yeah!
Nobody really knows where Chip Shop Curry came from, or even what it actually tastes like – but they don’t care because it’s one of the greatest sludges ever to grace our good Earth. It tastes absolutely NOTHING like curry but nobody seems to fucking care – pair it with a cooked chip and you’re in heaven.
Chip Shop Curry liberally added and it’s done – The Chippy Tea pizza.
It’s a thing of beauty, it’s a thing of grace and it’s available everyday on the main menu down at Crazy Pedro’s. Get down and give it a try.
