Pizza and Tabasco: the match made by advertising gods

If you ordered pizza for the football games Sunday or whatever the hell was on last night, chances are you got a little hot sauce on the side as well. For reasons known only to an advertising exec somewhere, Tabasco decided there was no better place to promote its famous pepper sauce than in boxes of delivered pizza and has teamed up with thousands of pizza places to prove the point.

Pizza goes so well with so many things — honey, milk, ranch dressing — but I’ve never heard one person say they prefer pizza with a touch of Tabasco. As both a pizza and Tabasco lover, have I been missing out by not combining the two?

I ordered a pizza over the weekend for football games to go along with my Boulevard Imperial Stout. Having a bottle of Tabasco on hand, I decided to see if they do indeed go together.
