Upon service, the giant ballwhich can be pink or black( squid ink flavor) — is brushed with alcohol and light on fire, cooking the ingredients within at the diners table. To avoid any melted cheese tragedies, a waiter uses scissors to cut the upper part of the bubble, uncovering the pizza within.
New York City-based chef Diane Hendricks stopped by Fox& Friends to recreate this explosive dish thats defining the internet on fire.
Really a lot of its for show, says Hendricks, who explains that you need to cook your pizza most of the route through before performing the tableside flambe.
Instead of using a plain alcohol, Hendricks infuses hers with Italian herbs. Once the flame burns out, youre left with a flavorful pizza bomb crust.
We dont recommend trying this at home but if you need to set anything on fire, please do it outside
