L.A. Food Critic Gets Roasted for His Disgusting 'Spokane-Style' Pizza Recipe
First of all, there IS NO such thing as Spokane-Style Pizza, but you try to tell that to Los Angeles food critic, podcaster, and TikTokker, Josh Scherer. His video recipe has gone viral and is making a lot of Washingtonians green in the face, and I'm not talking about with ENVY.
WARNING: If you reside, have resided, or plan to live in Washington state in the future, or have heard of the city of Spokane, you might want to look away.
I first found out about this ridiculous recipe on Twitter. I saw that 'Spokane' was listed in the trending section so me being hella nosy, I clicked on the link to find out why. This video of this guy pops up. I think to myself, he's good-looking, I wonder if he's single and ready to mingle. But then I hit the 'play' button on his video.
Josh opens up the video by saying, "Spokane-style pizza is the most underrated regional pizza."
Right off the bat, he sounds loopy to me. I've lived on this planet a good 20+something years (I'm not telling you my real age!), and I've spent 20 of those years living in Washington state. Baby, I ain't never heard of no Spokane-style pizza! Sorry, the Tennessee in me just leaped out and I left the proper grammar at home. Well, do you blame me? There is no such thing as 'Spokane-Style pizza! It makes me lose my mind and my perky grammatical skills.
After my eyeballs stopped rolling in the back of my head I kept watching the video.
Somebody tell me why is this dude is scooping salmon from a can onto a dry pizza crust, slathering on some FRY SAUCE instead of marinara or a white pizza sauce, covering that with oodles of shredded mozzarella cheese, diced onions and green bell peppers, and then tops off the pizza concoction with *checks notes* STRAWBERRY SLICES.
And then after the pizza has been cooked, he drizzles it in even more FRY SAUCE.
He added fry sauce to injury. Then he has the nerve to say that he can see why the entire Spokane Valley and Couer d'Alene, Idaho region loves this "Spokane-Style Pizza."
Mouths are agape.
Welp, cute guy, I hate to say it out loud but this recipe is bullocks. There's no such thing as a Spokane-Style Pizza and if there were, it certainly wouldn't be this recipe. Sorry, my dude.
Local Spokane news reporter Destiny Richards at KXLY news was talking about it with Josh and he tried to make his case and plead innocence, but you should already know that folks on Twitter and TikTok weren't hearing any of it.
