Many of the food challenges we feature on Best Food Challenges are found via leads from news articles. Some sites mention in passing their challenge or not at all. We always try to verify the challenge with the restaurant and until it is verified we let you know that the information is being verified and that you should check with the restaurant to make sure the challenge is still in effect. J&J’s Pizza Shack is one of those challenges. The challenge was featured in an article by CNBC from November of 2011. This challenge has been running for 27 years so it is doubtful it will end anytime soon.
Eat the 16-inch round deep-dish pizza, that has sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, green olives, black olives, ham, Canadian bacon, bacon bits, and mozzarella cheese; it weighs about 6 pounds and must be completed within one hour. .
