We Tried A Hot Cheetos Pizza And, Honestly, We'd Eat It Again

Hi, we're Casey and Pablo, and we tried a Hot Cheetos pizza because, as our co-workers say, we have an unhealthy addiction to the crunchy, red pieces of heaven.

When we discovered that Los Angeles restaurant Ameci Pizza Kitchen had created a Hot Cheetos pizza, we knew we had to get our permanently red-stained fingers on it.

Mostly because, according to the pizzeria's Instagram, the pizza is infused with Hot Cheetos, because why the hell not?

Crumbled Hot Cheetos appear to be melted right into the cheese!

So we ordered the pizza and, when it finally arrived at our table, we were overcome with emotion.

We were also starving.

Pablo tasted it first, and he thought that the pizza overpowered the Hot Cheetos a bit, but fell in love with, proposed to, and then married the after-taste.

Pablo's thoughts: I love Hot Cheetos and I love pizza, so this was the marriage I never knew I needed in my life. Even though it took a while for the flamin' hot taste to hit me, I absolutely fell in love when it did. I think infusing Hot Cheetos into anything is a super-fun idea, and this satisfies me more than any of my exes ever did.

Casey thought the pizza was pretty damn tasty, but that’s mostly because the actual Hot Cheetos seemed to have absorbed some of the oil, which resulted in an oddly addictive and chewy crunch.

Casey's thoughts: Was it the best pizza I've ever had? No, I mean, it's freakin' Hot Cheetos pizza — of course it's not going to be the best. But, for someone who seriously loves Hot Cheetos, it was pretty good. All I know is that I'm going to start decorating my frozen pizzas with some HCs because, duh.

In the end, although the pizza was pretty solid, we both felt like it was missing something: MORE HOT CHEETOS.

But, honestly, we definitely think it’s worth a try if you're as obsessed with Hot Cheetos as we are. Just don't wipe your hands on your jeans like we did.
