Many of you will have heard of the “Saltdean Sizzler”, a pizza made by Paul Brayshaw of Paul’s Pizza in Saltdean near Brighton, along with some delicious handmade pizzas for the, shall we say, sensible customer! I reviewed Paul’s creations including the Sizzler back in May this year here.

Well it’s been a a very rocky road for Paul over the last few months with an attempted break in at the restaurant, resulting in a very nasty injury to his leg which resulted in him having an emergency operation to have the lower part of the leg amputated. This meant a long stay in hospital and the rehab that follows.

Now many people might give up at that point, but not Paul, he is champing at the bit to get back at the oven to make more fantastic pizzas for the people of Saltdean and beyond.

Since my own and Rob House’s visit to Saltdean, Paul attended the reading cook off where he was serving up slices of his sizzler to the unsuspecting crowds. During his recovery period the Saltdean Sizzler has regularly been discussed on Facebook and has gathered certain recognition among Chilliheads as a challenge to beat all challenges. Being that just before he closed, Paul had served just over 1000 Sizzlers and only 8 people had managed to consume a full one, you can see why!

The pizza was sent off to Warwick University where it came back with a Scoville rating of just under 3.2 million!

So on the 15th November 2012, exactly a year since he opened originally, Paul is scheduled to fire up the ovens, and open the doors once again. He isn’t even waiting until his new prosthetic leg is ready, he is that serious to get his life back on track and I for one salute him for that.

Opening hours will be slightly reduced with the new opening, I believe being shut on tuesday and closing earlier in the evenings, but it still leaves you all plenty of time to come down to Saltdean and take on the Sizzler, or something more tame!

To keep you going here is my successful attempt at the Sizzler:

And here’s our very own Rob House with his speed eating record! Blink and you will miss it!

At the moment Paul can be contacted via Pauls Pizza on Facebook or PaulsPizzaUK on twitter

So do you think you can handle a Sizzler? there’s only one way to find out!
