Watch: Gordon Ramsay’s Reaction To Sushi Pizza
Chef Gordon Ramsay is no stranger to calling things as it is, especially when it comes to food. In fact, Ramsay’s insults have become a part of pop culture through a series of epic memes that show us just how savage the Michelin starred chef really is.
We know that Gordon despises pineapple pizza and that he was once served a dessert pizza that he literally spat out, but, how would sushi pizza fare? Judging by his past reactions, it’s pretty safe to assume that it’s going to go three for three in the hate column – it’s clear that chef doesn’t like people messing around with his pizza.
In an episode of Kitchen Nightmares (one of his most underrated shows, in my opinion) Gordon visits a failing Japanese restaurant called Sushi Ko, and, as usual, orders a few things from the menu. He tries the miso soup, the green tower appetizer (complete with grey hair and all), the frozen salmon sashimi (a big no-no), and the sushi pizza. The sushi pizza is made with rice, salmon, crab, mayonnaise, and cheese and honestly sounds like something I’d never try.
Gordon immediately spits out the ‘pizza’ and calls it “an insult to pizza and Japanese food”. Watch his entire reaction below.
While Gordon is enraged at the start, I suggest you watch the entire Sushi Ko episode as, towards the end, he helps the co-owner, a retired sushi chef, rediscover his calling (I’m not ashamed to admit that I shed a tear). We always knew you were a softie inside Gordon!
