Ask any millennial what their favourite thing in the world is and I can guarantee their answer: pizza. If millennials had a flag, then pizza would be the emblem at its centre. It has managed to integrate itself into everything we do and wear and eat. Even a day out can be totally based around where the best place to get a slice is. So it only makes sense that pizza hybrids have started making their way to the mainstream, and we've found the best/weirdest one yet: pizza ice cream.
Yep, ya heard. The taste of delicious pizza blended with the cold refreshing creaminess of ice cream. Sounds... interesting.
We first heard of the phenomenon a couple of years ago when American ice cream innovators Coolhaus began selling the flavour. The brand don't shy away from unusual flavours - right now they're currently peddling avocado sea salt, fried chicken and waffles, and the rather enigmatically named 'Jewish Deli' - and make their pizza flavour with a mascarpone and olive oil base, adding sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil and a pinch of salt to finish.
But Little Baby's Ice Cream has taken our slice obsession to new heights. The Philadelphia-based ice creamery makes its version using tomato, oregano, basil, salt and garlic, and you could have it in a cone, but why have it in a cone when you could eat it on top of an actual slice of pizza? Yes, this place offer a scoop with an actual side of slice. Now that's doing pizza ice cream the right way.
Little Baby's is also no stranger to a weird flave - check out 'Everything Bagel' and 'Oyster - but unfortunately you'll have to make your way across the pond to try them. But don't worry, us Brits are quick to catch a trend, so no doubt you'll be seeing pizza ice cream everywhere very soon.
