The Peanut Butter Pizza Review

Well, the weigh-in yesterday morning didn’t quite go as well as I expected it to. I decided that I needed just a bit of a break. Nothing too major, but something that would be more flavorful than carrot sticks and would fill my stomach more than any “Thinsation” product on the market.  So I decided to get a pizza.

But I didn’t want the same old thing.  I wanted something different.  I knew exactly where I wanted to go.

So after I took Ankle Biter back home last night I swung by Diesel Pizza & Wings, a local ‘gourmet pizza’ restaurant that specializes in pizza that isn’t considered “normal” to most.

Mac & Cheese pizza. Poutine pizza. Little shrimp pesto pizza. Madras curry chicken pizza. Peanut butter pizza.

STOP. Hammer time.

The official description of said pizza is as follows: Peanut Butter – A mouth watering combination of creamy peanut butter, seasoned ground beef, bacon, and mozzarella cheese

Yes, that actually sounded good to me. I like peanut butter…I like ground beef…I like bacon…I like cheese. What’s not to like here?

So that’s what I ordered.

In the car on the way home I could smell the peanut butter, and it smelled GOOD. I told myself that peanut butter was healthy and that was another reason I went with this particular choice. I mean, I could have gotten the works or all-meat or something like that, but felt that peanut butter would be a healthier choice to make. I dunno…read for yourself and then make a decision.

Of course, I just HAD to take pictures. I just had to let you all know what it looked like. There was no pizza sauce base, just peanut butter. The pizza was hot and the flavor was good.

Mmmm....peanut butter pizza!
A slice of peanut buttery pizza goodness!
Trust me...THIS. IS. GOOD.

Would I order it again? Heck yeah, I would. Maybe I could talk myself into having it as a weekend breakfast…it can’t be any worse than steak-n-eggs, can it?

I’ve been to Diesel a few times and I can totally see myself going back. What I really enjoy above all else is trying something new that I wouldn’t normally eat. It’s something I highly recommend to everybody, regardless of where it is you live. If you’re going out for a night on the town with a date or a significant other, try something new. What’s the worse that can happen…you don’t like it? BAH. So what??

The moral of this tale isn’t to get everybody to try a peanut butter pizza, it’s to go out there into the world every once in awhile and do something you wouldn’t normally do or try something you wouldn’t normally try.

You just never know what’ll happen…

  1. I just wonder how they come up with the combinations? I mean, peanut butter, bacon and ground beef?

    But if I listed off some of the things I’ve eaten, I suppose it might make some people flinch.


    I’d give it a try!

  2. Pizza and peanut butter are my absolute two favourite foods in the world. And yet, I don’t think I would EVER try them together….

    Now…. that’s just me and my many, many food issues. But, hey, big props to you for going for it…..

  3. LMAO! You know what came to mind when I read this? Did you ever see that episode of “Friends” where Rachel makes a trifle for a get-together and she puts beef in it by accident but doesn’t think anything of it (it’s a dessert trifle, mind you)? And Ross says, “It tastes like feet!” And Joey says, “Beef? Good. Whipped cream? Good. Chocolate? Good. What’s not to love?” Ha ha ha ha ha! TOTALLY reminded me of that!

  4. I’ve been putting peanut butter on my pizza all my life. I can’t believe there are so many people reluctant to try it
