Can you handle the heat this Halloween ?

For a short time only, Morrisons has launched the Hotter Than Hell pizza, which contains Naga chillies, rated 200 TIMES spicier than jalapeños.

The British-grown Naga chilli is one of the world's hottest chillies, and the special pizza is believed to be the spiciest supermarket pizza available in the UK.

The Naga chilli has a Scoville rating (a scale used to measure spiciness) of up to one million, which is 200 times spicier than Tabasco sauce. Some Naga chilli varieties have even been used to develop tear-gas hand grenades!

To add even more heat to the pizza, the Hotter Than Hell will be topped with spicy pulled steak, spicy chicken, jalapeño pepperoni, a chilli cheese crumb, jalapeños and crushed chillies.

The pizza is so spicy, Morrison's pizza counter staff have to be under strictly controlled conditions when preparing the dish, including safety goggles, latex gloves, aprons and special equipment.

Sabina Qureshi, pizza buyer at Morrisons, said: "Chilli fans have been telling us that they don't get the extreme heat they're after when eating regular pizzas, so we thought we'd make something for Halloween with more of a kick!

"We've worked with our British chilli grower to grow these extreme heat chilies, and our pizza counter staff are now on standby in their protective gear to make the pizzas up."

The pizza is available from Morrisons in 260 in-store pizza counters from today (Friday, October 28) to Monday, October 31.
