You’re Go(at)ing Straight To HELL

by Herbertimo on November 26, 2015 in Food & Drink

Goat isn’t a common menu option here in New Zealand, perhaps sometimes in curry and almost certainly never before seen atop bread surrounded by crumbled tortillas and lime wedges.

But that is now what you can find at HELL Pizza.

The good people at La Boca Loca, the ones that are a Conscious Consumers Business and have been paying their staff a living wage since July 2014, have with the help of a supergroup of awesome have created an incredible pizza: The El Cabra.

It seems the kind heartedness of La Boca Loca is rubbing off on others. HELL, since October this year have made all their chicken and pork free range. That’s a whole lot of Harmony pork and Tegel chicken going onto pizzas around the country, giving consumers comfort that they are choosing humanely farmed products AND making the pizzas even tastier.

HELL are even taking their good spirit outside the kitchen and are now sponsoring the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults as well as going into the second year of the HELL Reading Challenge – encouraging kids to read, after Marketing Manager Jason Buckley found out his kids were being bullied for going to the library, with the carrot coming in the form of a 333 Hellthy Pizza.

La Boca Loca, in combination with Martin Bosley, Panhead Brewery and HELL Pizza’s have made a creation that leaves you wondering what more could have been added. At first it seems like one of those dishes of things on/in things that don’t make a lot of snese until you’ve tried it, you know, the turducken, the cherpumple or perhaps closer to home – dipping fries into soft-serve.

El Cabra is a pizza covered with goat slow cooked in Mexican chocolate mole sauce with Panhead Stout, sweetcorn, smoked chipotle mayo, garnished with crumbled tortillas, lime wedges and fresh coriander.

And as if that isn’t exciting enough – HELL restaurants have wee sheets with recipes and instructions so you can make your own mole & smoked chipotle mayo and even details how the goat on your pizza is prepared.

We have three $20 HELL vouchers to give away on Monday evening. All you have to do is tell us in the comment section below: What does El Cabra translate to in English from Spanish.

translates to ‘The Goat’. My eldest is a goat lover so refused to eat the El Cabra, better for the rest of us who loved it

It means ‘goat.’ Do you know if the mole sauce has peanuts in it (as it sometimes does). Cos that could send me straight to Hell, what with my peanut allergy…

Herbertimo November 27, 2015 at 2:02 pm

No peanuts according to the recipe sheet available in store.
May be worth double checking with the staff though 🙂

El Cabra = the goat. I wish it was more widely available in NZ – delicious if cooked right.

The Goat – this pizza sounds intriguing!
