  • Tombstone Bar Snacks Pizza with mozzarella sticks - zesty fried pickles and onionsTombstone Bar Snacks Pizza with mozzarella sticks - zesty fried pickles and onions

If anyone knows bar food, it’s TOMBSTONE® Pizza, which is why the brand that was born in a bar nearly 65 years ago in Medford, Wisconsin is paying homage to its roots with the introduction of the TOMBSTONE Bar Snacks Pizza for the International Beer Day 2023. Fans can enter for a chance to win the unapologetic, over-the-top bold flavour experience that features bar snack favourites all on one buttery, crispy crust. Topped with gooey mozzarella sticks, zesty fried pickles and fried onions, the pizza is finished off with spicy jalapeno slices and nacho cheese sauce, bringing the boldest, craziest bar bite straight to the homes of lucky winners.

A pizza with a crispy crust with crunchy mozza sticks, fried pickles and onions! We have spotted the Frikan’ Dutchman pizza by Domino’s here in the Netherlands with the Dutch bar snack ‘Frikandel’ or the Turkish pizza with our national bar snack ‘kroket’, called Pizza Marjolein’, at a cafetaria in Utrecht (we couldn’t find it on the menu anymore).  We think the mozza sticks and fried onions are more appropriate on pizza!
