Last year, Dimo’s Pizza concocted a pizza that featured a Jeppson’s Malört mole sauce and was actually delicious. Now the mad scientists in the Dimo’s lab have figured out a way to incorporate Mountain Dew and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos into their latest recipe. The Game of Thrones–themed Flamin’ Hot Daenerys slice is made with a caramelized onion base, topped with housemade pulled pork, Mountain Dew gastrique, Flamin' Hot Cheetos gratin, sunflower seeds and cheddar cheese. Miraculously, it’s not as disgusting as it sounds.


The geek-centric pizza made its debut last night at the Galaxy Hero IPA relaunch event at Revolution Brewing’s tap room presented by C2E2. We stopped by to try a slice, and made sure to yell “dracarys!” before digging in. The Mountain Dew gastrique gives the slice a tangy, corn syrupy taste while the Flamin’ Hot Cheeto dust provides a spicy kick, resulting in a surprisingly balanced flavor. The pulled pork, caramelized onions and cheese get overpowered by the more outlandish toppings, like the sunflower seeds, which lend a satisfying crunch to the slice. Revolution Brewing’s Galaxy Hero IPA paired nicely with the pizza, providing a crisp, hop-filled respite from all the bright red Cheeto dust.


For those brave enough, the Flamin’ Hot Daenerys will be available by the slice and whole pie at Dimo’s locations in Wicker Park (1615 N Damen Ave) and Wrigleyville (3463 N Clark St) from April 21–27. It’s a fitting tribute to the Mother of Dragons and the perfect addition to your Game of Thrones viewing party or post-4/20 festivities.
