Hang Loose, Home Slice

Surfer Boy Pizza
Palermo Villa Inc (2022)
The fourth season of Stranger Things is still 11 days away, but the cross-promotional items are out in full force.  My favorite so far has been the line of Surfer Boy Pizza that I found in the freezer section of my local Wal-Mart.

Before I even get into the pizza itself, take a look at that logo of a long haired surf dude standing barefoot on a pepperoni.  He's got a pizza box in one hand, he's throwing up a shaka with the other, and he's surfing on what looks like a marinara wave.  Brilliant!

The pizza itself wasn't amazing, but it's definitely not bad either.  It sort of reminds me of the Tombstone Pizza that my dad used to pick up when I was a teenager so that we could get the free baseball card inside.  On the other hand, this combination of toppings is pretty amazing.  It may look strange, but the pineapple and jalapeno flavors work together tremendously well.  I'm going to have to remember to recreate this combination after these Surfer Boy pizzas are no longer available.
