Starbucks really should’ve trademarked the term “pumpkin spice” because this (in)famous term is everywhere. From pumpkin spice highlighters to pumpkin spice peeps (gross), it seems like everyone is jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. However, if there is a God for sorority girls, he has just blessed us with what may be the best pumpkin spice since the original PSL. Pumpkin. Spice. Pizza. A PSP. If you think it sounds gross, but look at this beauty. And listen: it’s made of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon, fior di latte (fancy mozzarella), ricotta, honey, and sage.
Now clearly, this wasn’t made by the sorority deities, but instead by pizza lover and entrepreneur Anthony Rotio. He created an at-home Neapolitan pizza creating device. For reference, all those amazing Insta-worthy pizzas your friends are eating abroad in Italy are “Neapolitan” baked at 800 degrees while your usual late night Papa John’s is… well not. It has to do with the high heat used to make the pizza, which is what makes Rotio’s Pizza Shelf so enticing. He invented the PSP in the prototype model.
“I liked the idea of a ‘pumpkin pie,” Rotio told Cosmopolitan. “Once the fior di latte-PSL pun clicked in my head, it was just a matter of picking a few more ingredients that worked together,” he said.
I need to get one of these and ASAP. No longer will my mac and cheese covered greasy slice of pizza from that pizza place above the bar near my sorority house suffice. No, I need, screw it, I demand to get my hands on a PSP ASAP.
For those wondering, Rotio doesn’t like PSLs himself, but his wife does! He actually created this seasonal pizza just for her. Husband goals..
