8.5 pounds of dough, 3.5 pounds of cheese, and your choice of 3 toppings.

No one should eat that much at one sitting.  I'll put down a 12 inch Imos alone fairly often, but that's only a pound or so.

Apparently most competitive eaters are not actually that fat.  A gis for national eating competitions shows people who are average to quite fit looking.  Part of the trick is suppressing natural reflexes - not being overweight.


This is Takeru Kobayashi,a 6 times national chamption, and one of the winningest competitive eaters of all time - immediately after winning one of his competitions.

I don't know if it is the same company, but there was a Cicero's in north San Jose that made a 30" pizza, a thin crust. When I was in high school, a friend of mine and I could go down there, order one with pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, green peppers and extra cheese, two pitchers of root beer and then polish the bastard off in about 45 minutes. That store went out of business back in the late 1980s.

Perhaps.  But your post seemed to be specifically about competitive eaters.

Also, it doesn't really seem much different than drinking contests, does it?  Still a crapton of calories at one sitting.  And drinking contests have been a manly competition for as long as fermentation has been understood in pre-recorded history.

Likewise eating contests have been around for a thousand years in Europe.  Writings from the 13th century talk about Vikings having eating contests during celebrations of the Norse gods.

No. Just no. That much cheese and dough? Ouch.
 
2014-03-29 09:40:22 AM  
A few years ago in college a friend and I tried a similar challenge at a place called Polito's. It was $500 for a 12-pound pizza in under an hour. At the time, no one had ever done it. The pizza itself was amazing, a doughy cheesy meaty mess, but only for the first pound or two.

I got down 6.5 pounds (he wasn't holding up his end of the deal) before I puked in my hands and he ran out the front door throwing up in the parking lot. We only had 2 squares left, which was the closest anybody had come at that point. I think somebody finally did it awhile afterwards. It was a good time, we even had a fairly large cheering section. I didn't feel very well for a least a couple days afterwards though. I know I'll never try it again.

This is a local place, but that does sound pretty good. STL is famous for thin crust square cut pizza, but we have a ton of variety since we are a heavily Italian city

In Mt. Washington MD (suburb of Baltimore) I just found an Egyptian pizzeria named Al Pacino Pizza. No, not merely an "Italian" pizzeria run by Egyptians. And not a place that sells pizzas on one end, falafel on the other.

In addition to your standard pizzeria fare (Margherita, Di Funghi, Manhattan, Alla Napolitana, calamari, calzones, Buffalo wings) and standard Egyptian fare (stuffed grape leaves, babaganoush, kebabs, schwarma), they sell the most farking amazing and/or unusual and/or delicious hybrids.

35 kinds of pizza including pizza with falafel topping and tahini and salsa dipping sides. The Taba: Pizza with squid, mushroom, sun-dried tomatoes,fresh tomatoes, roasted garlic, olive oil, fontina & mozzarella. The India: Pizza with shrimp or Indian spice-marinated tandoori chicken, cilantro, spicy tomato, yogurt, curry, mozzarella, yellow squash, with a mango chutney side. My current favorite, Revolution XXV: fresh spinach, ground beef sautéed in Egyptian spices, fresh garlic, red onion, house sauce, mozzarella.

And that barely scratches the surface. For the international-loving foodies: alpacinopizza.com

If you live anywhere nearby, do yourself a favor and go. 6080 Falls Road, Mt Washington; it's in a small plaza, around back.

Yes, I just totally plugged a pizza place in-thread. Unfarkingbelievable place.
 
2014-03-29 12:46:45 PM  
Oh, the pizza place I just raved about also has vegan, whole-wheat, and gluten - free options.

This is *not* a restaurant. It's a small take-out-only joint in a small plaza on a two-lane suburban road.

this pizza challenge i could probably do

i watch stuff like "man vs food" and i can tell before he starts eating if it's a challenge i think i could do. like one i watched yesterday where he was eating a 6+ lb "fritatta" (not really fritatta, but just a big scrambled mess). i think i could do it and want some extra bacon! sure, i'd be very full, but breakfast is definitely my forte! problem is, though, this thing only had 4 eggs! i make single-serve omelets for myself with 3 eggs typically. seems this large portion should have at least 8!

anything dealing with spicy hot foods...nope, not going to do that challenge. my mouth can't handle the spicy hot foods.
