Celebrity Dish: Ian’s CM Punk-Inspired Pizza

Ian’s Pizza in Wrigleyville has added a pizza inspired by WWE superstar and Chicago-area native CM Punk to its menu for a limited time.

The G.T.S pizza — named after Punk’s finishing move, which stands for “Go To Sleep” — features smoked turkey leg, sliced potatoes, swiss cheese and French fried onions on a creme fraiche base.

Why smoked turkey leg?

“The G.T.S. is his signature move,” said Ian’s managing partner Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau by email, “so a meat that puts you to sleep is the perfect choice.”

The pizza will be available Monday through Sunday and was created for SugarSlam 2011, the wrestling-themed baking contest hosted by bakeanddestroy.com (you can watch Ian’s video on the G.T.S. pizza by clicking here). The judge panel for the contest features WWE Diva Beth Phoenix, Moto executive pastry chef Ben Roche and author Mike Edison.
