Flickr Find: Brisbane Bombardment!

handsome and tasty
So no sooner had I sat down to post an update with may latest Christmas creation when an email came in from Australia:
So not to be outdone by my fellow Brisbane pizza makers, I whipped up another Happy Happy Pizza tonight.

Homemade base; tomato paste (store bought); mushroom and bacon hair; salami eyes, eyebrows, ears and mouth; olive eye and mouth detail. And cheese, of course.
The message was from none other than David de Groot who, as you may recall, was the artist behind the famous fungus face who earned a not-too-shabby 8/10.

I nearly dropped my slice of pizza in excitement and quickly clicked the link to see what David came up with and as you can see by the photos above he managed to design a handsome yet tasty-looking face with a bit of extra character.

Notice how despite the fact that the cheese is well-browned and the facial features totally shifted during baking that the face retains it's overall character and expression. All of that plus a homemade base earns "Handsome & Tasty" a much-coveted 10/10!!! Congratulations!

I've been asked a lot of weird questions about this site. Generally people either "get it" or they don't. David definitely does, as you can tell from his description on flickr:
So I made pizzas for dinner tonight and just couldn't not make a happy happy pizza.

See? That's what it's all about. A bit of fun, a bit of art, and some tasty results!

A Quick Slice Hawaiian pizza has Canadian bacon and pineapple toppings and is especially popular in the Western United States. Ham and pineapple is also a popular topping combination in Australia, but notably not in Hawaii. This type is also common within the EU as Pizza Hawaii.
