Crimes Against Food: The Dessert Pizza at Max Brenner [video]
Sunday night, the Food Network aired the pizza edition of the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate, and we were mortified by what we saw right at the end: Aaron Sanchez praising the dessert pizza at Max Brenner: a monstrosity combining chocolate, marshmallows, candied hazelnuts, and bananas, all on top of pale pre-made pizza dough, what appears to be the pockmarked kind that those $1/slice joints use. All passed through one of those rolling toaster ovens that Quizno's uses to toast their sandwiches.
We are fans of Aaron Sanchez, but this is flat-out WTF crazypants, with some suggesting that this is a credibility-destroying recommendation. Is this, as the title implies, the best pizza Aaron Sanchez ever ate?
Also, it's worth noting the appearance in the video of the alleged Max Brenner, who, as recently pointed out by The Feedbag, back in 2006 was said not to exist: "“Just as there is no Johnny Rocket and, sadly, no Chuck E. Cheese, there is no living, breathing Max Brenner—well, not really. The name is actually a composite of two Israeli marketing geniuses, Max Fichtman and Oded Brenner..." but then was recently interviewed in The Age, an Australian newspaper. Who is this man? Why must he call this a pizza?
