Horse And Jambalaya Pizza Predicts Super Bowl Outcome

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 17:21 GMT

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The fate of Super Bowl XLIV lies in one weird pizza pie.

Every year, Ira Scott of Road Kill Pizza company creates a special pizza representing the two teams playing in the Super Bowl.

This year’s pigskin pie will be topped with horse meat jerky on the Indianapolis Colts side and a cajun jambalaya mix of crawfish, shrimp, ham, chicken, and sausage on the New Orleans Saints side.

The wacky pie will be divided evenly down the middle by a cheesy “scrimmage line,” although one half has the edge.

Scott says the better-tasting side typically yields the winning team.

In this case, he thinks the horse meat – imported from France – tastes better than the jambalaya “mish- mash” so therefore the Colts will win the Super Bowl.

Scott adds, “The pizza is NEVER wrong.”

He used horse meat on the pizza in 2007 for Super Bowl XLI and the Colts came out victorious then, too.
