The Dogfather - A Pizza Hot-Dog
|Sometimes crazy is good. The Dogfather is crazy good.|
I've been working with Hogwurst lately to develop a digital campaign around their restaurant, but I'm also a customer. I've been living in Cardiff for the last nine months, and a couple of nights ago after a grueling day of academia, my friend Ish and myself, popped in to try their new DogFather creation. That's when I had an aha! moment. The owner, Hoa, and his staff made me completely rethink hot dogs.
It's basically their stock, gourmet hot-dog (using quality frankfurters), but they've gone Italian. They've basically created a pizza hot-dog, which is rather genius considering the popularity of the pizza genre, especially among students here. This could be a cult favorite in my humble opinion. For myself it made me question every hot-dog I've ever ate. I'll still always be a fan of my L.A. favorite, Pink's, but it's a genuine rethink of what is commonly thought of a boring mundane food by most of the world. By adding pepperoni, marinara, cheese, onions and green peppers, in lieu of traditional toppings, what you get is an amazing new dish worthy of sharing here online. Want to make your own? Here's how, but if you're ever in Cardiff, drop by Hogwurst and try one of my new favorites.
- Hot-dog bun(s)
- Shredded Mozzarella cheese
- Grilled pepperoni
- Chopped onion
- Chopped pepper
- Crushed Doritos.
- Grill the pepperoni, prepare the marina, and chop your veggies.
- Assemble as expected, garnishing with crushed Doritos and siding with a dill pickle.
