The Red Tomato takeaway’s Hot Special pizza is set to enter the Guinness Book Of Records for being the hottest in the world.
Chilli expert named Frank Jay, who helped pizza boss Parviz Hayati create the sizzling sauce for the Italian treat, said that the pizza was “extremely uncomfortable” and was hotter than police pepper spray, the Daily Star reported.
Jay said that an average jalapeno measures about 2,500, and their sauce included Scoville chilli, which has heat rating of more than 13million, resulting in extremely uncomfortable and long-lasting burn.
It was twice as deadly as chemical weapons, he added.
The makers had even called an ambulance crew to treat the 9 diners who sampled the pizza during an eating competition at Parviz’s pizzeria in Doncaster, South Yorks.
However, the contest was stopped only after four slices had been served up to contestants, for the owners didn’t want anyone to end up in hospital.
