back to article Morrisons launches bizarre Yorkshire Pudding pizza thing

Brit supermarket chain Morrisons has sacked 1,500 middle managers – but fear not, they’ve also vomited out an unholy creation that is part pizza, part Yorkshire pudding. The 6½” thing is made by filling an oversized Yorkie Pud with tomato sauce, cheese and typical pizza toppings. A photo of this strangely alluring monstrosity …

Re: it’s the first Sunday of February, which would make it the fifth this year.

So does that make it a blue super blood pizza pudding?

As for me, I'd serve it with beer, following on from a beer starter and with beer for dessert. Possibly a crate each of Peroni and Black Sheep to be in(n) keeping.

I think the fifth is what you'd need to wash this monstrosity down with ... for medicinal reasons, of course. Or a little well deserved memory dehancement.

Wazzock!

A true hipster would serve this fusion delicacy on a dutch hoe with a plant pot of gravy as a chaser.

I am not a hipster, instead I would take this foul affront to northern cuisine and post it to their head office, however before I do I would crap in a piping bag and write a bespoke message that would simply say - Wazzock!

You're forgetting the obligatory pulled pork. And the Yorkie would have to be gluten free.

Actually, the gravy isn't a bad idea as long as it's my wife's homemade sausage gravy. Chug about a quart before eating and another quart after eating the thing in order to coat the stomach and to provide a pleasant final taste sensation when done.

Well obviously, I'd wear it in place of me flat cap.

Or possibly use it as a bowl for feeding me whippet.

Actually, the idea posted above of filling it with donor meat and chilli sauce has a certain fascination, need more beer.

It should be used for a culturally sensitive remake of "Last of the Summer Wine" where a group of Italian Pensioners move to Yorkshire and attempt to blend into a small farming community with predictably hilarious results when they wear "Pizza Puddings" instead of Flatcaps.

There's a pub round the corner from Olympia that serves Yorkshires like that, filled with some sort of stew. I had the Indian with rice instead, which I think was the better choice.

Reminds me of a reverse version a friend had in a Pizza joint in Peterborough, in the days when pizza was a new thing - Spag Bol Pizza - standard neapolitan pizza with spag, amd bol sauce on it.

Of course I'll eat that.

If it's a normal-ish Yorkshire pudding with stuff added, it's going to be far too dry imo - that means gravy, but to dunk, not poured - so put it in a ramikin.

As for toppings, add pineapple (for polarising opinions), ham (yorkshire pud needs meat, but beef on pizza is vile), and basil leaves.

To balance out the stodge, serve with Caesar salad, I'd also be drinking some inexpensive red wine it.

For afters, a few chocolate digestive biscuits sandwiching some dairylea (or equivalent) cheese.

Took some pate de foie gras and spread it on

A chocolate biscuit

Then murmured "I'll risk it"

I'd eat it naked with the heating off while watching battlefield earth. If your going to suffer you might as well do it properly. On the other hand it might be quite nice so what have you got to lose.

Cow Orkers, though orking a cow might be classed as animal cruelty or something worse.

As for Yorkshire puds, I have long liked, and regularly eat, a big YP filled with chilli-con-carne. I first encountered that decades ago in a pub in Lancashire.

How else?

I would eat it post pub in memory of Lester Haines' tremendous "Post-pub nosh neckfiller" articles on the subject of weird, wonderful and varyingly edible things to demolish in such a manner.

Bit early for the first pint but I can start planning it.

Re: How else?

To do it properly, however, we should hold a massive buffet serving one of each of the less lethal neckfillers alongside half a dozen or so of these morrisonstrosities and enough booze to dissolve a moderate sized elephant. Then see what happens, for science.

Re: How else?

I did specify the less lethal neckfillers. I'm aware that some of them are capable of reducing an average human to a horrible stench, but I was hoping to exclude the ones that involved actual isotopes, because where's a splod like me going to get that stuff anyway?

To do it properly we need to coordinate with The York Roast Company for their specialist expertese in making yorkshire pudding based abominations. I have no doubt that their offerings will beat so many shades of shit out of Morrisons' that horrible stenches will be everywhere.

Chicago Style Deep Dish Copy

I can say with authority, that this is a rip off of a Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza. Having made 1000's during my university days...

I would eat it, but would throw another pizza skin on the top and make it a Stuffed Pizza ;-}
