Everyone loves pizza. And after a few drinks on a night out – remember them? – everyone loves a tequila. Or four.
So why not put the two together?
Well, one brand has come up for the perfect dish for those who are lovers of both pizza and the blue agave.
Top tequila brand Jose Cuervo is selling a pizza infused with the famous spirit to celebrate National Margarita Day on February 22.
Usually food fans use pizza as part of their hangover cure the next day after a session on the tequila.
But now you can multi-task – and have them together.

Tequila fans will be able to get a Margherita pizza infused with a Margarita cocktail, aptly named the ‘Margarita Margherita’ – and you can order one today.
The pizza, from its dough to sauce, is fermented and marinated in tequila, triple sec, salt and garlic, before being sent out to hundreds of customers across the UK in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Belfast, via a tequila delivery service.
The world’s first Margarita Margherita pizza includes dough fermented in Jose Cuervo tequila for over 24-hours and a tomato sauce marinated in triple sec, salt, garlic and tequila.
It’s topped off with finely-grated Parmesan, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, sea salt and lime wedges.
The Margarita Margherita pizza will cost £8 and it even comes with a complimentary cocktail.
The Margarita cocktail combines the traditional sweet and savoury flavours of a traditional Margarita with toppings found in a traditional Margherita pizza.
It contains fresh lemon juice, basil, fresh tomatoes and tequila.
The cocktail is finished off with a garnish of cherry tomatoes and a mozzarella ball on a skewer with basil leaves.
Those who want to order the pizza can do so from the Jose Cuervo website.
