Crazy Pedro's Part Time Pizza Parlour Manchester

By Jiminy!

Crazy Pedro’s dare you to try their May pizza special, ‘I Don’t Like Cricket, I Love It!’. Never shying away from a wacky topping, they’ve taken it to a whole new level with this month’s pizza, which features crispy fried shallots, mozzarella, lime, sriracha, coriander and a healthy dose of fried crickets!

It might sound like an ‘I’m a Celebrity’ bush tucker trial but this creation truly is a taste sensation. The taste of the crickets has been likened to everything from pistachios to chicken and bacon, but we’d suggest you fly down to Crazy Pedro's or Crazy Pedro's Northern Quarter and try it for yourself!
