Las Vegas pizzeria offering grasshopper pie as insects invade city

Dana Mathewson, with a hat tip to Martha Mathewson

Your Food and Drink editor presents our next feature article, of special interest to our Las Vegas dwellers (Las Vegans?). Here's one you won't see on The Food Channel!

Most food editors go and sample the dishes about which they write. Alas, our publication's travel budget is bupkis, and so is my personal one. So I can't go. You'll just have to imagine this one. The only thing lacking, for my taste, is anchovies.

One Nevada restaurant is making the most of the hordes of grasshoppers that have descended upon Las Vegas — by using them as inspiration for a pizza topping.

"What started out as a joke amongst our stoner friends has swept the nation," Evel Pie, located on Fremont Street, announced on Facebook Tuesday. The pizza shop said their new pizza, dubbed "The Canyon Hopper,"is for "only the bravest daredevils."

The pie consists of chorizo, goat cheese, caramelized onions, arugula, and, of course, lime- and garlic-roasted grasshoppers.

Described as "damn good," Evel Pie said the creation's tastiness surprised even the staff.

The inspiration for the pie likely stems from the insect influx Nevada has seen in recent weeks. Videos showed Las Vegas, in particular, was swarmed with grasshoppers — which pose no danger, as they don’t carry disease and don't bite, according to scientists.

The rest of the article is about why the hoppers are overwhelming the city (no, apparently they have no interest in gambling or taking in the shows). https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/las-vegas-grasshopper-pizza-swarm-city

1 What kind of beer do you serve with grasshopper pizza?  Kolsch, maybe?  I guess it depends on how spicy the little insects taste.

2 I like a nice pale ale with my pizza. An IPA if a good one's available. Right here in the Twin Cities we have a local product called Surley Furious that's really nice. Failing that, Sierra Nevada pale ale will do the trick nicely.
Regarding this article, a couple years ago I came across an article that said there are countries (I believe Mexico's one of them) where creatures such as locusts are a regular food item. They are mostly protein, and supposedly taste pretty good.

I wonder what PETA's stand on eating them is? I seem to remember they had a conniption years ago when The Lightbringer grabbed a fly out of the air while on television, so I imagine they'll be up in arms about this pizzeria's latest offering.

3 A pale ale would probably go well; after all, it goes with most food. Yeah; Sierra Nevada has a good one!  If you ever get a chance try Schlafley's. I doubt you can get it up in the Great White North, Dana, but it's certainly worth it if you ever find it anywhere.

I remember when the Bam did his frog impression with that fly and the Animal Rights peeps lost their cool.  I really doubt they'll like grasshoppers on pizza.

How would a grasshopper, the drink, taste with grasshopper pizza?  Never had either.

7 Here we see exercise as an end, such as an end to overweight and fatigue. Yoga is different.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.

The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.

Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.

14 Resurge review proves that Resurge helps to burn fat quickly and improves your deep sleep. This weight loss supplement addresses the root cause of sleep deprivation and obesity like no other supplement does. It is much more than just a pill. Resurge is an energy booster too.
