PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Base Pizzeria is a locally owned and family run restaurant in Phoenix.

All of the three owners have a serious love of spice and noticed that no restaurants seem to be doing a super spicy pizza, so they decided to create one.

The Base Reaper is made using ground Carolina Reaper peppers (the world's hottest chilli) and concentrated Ghost Pepper extract. The pizza is finished with their own Base Infused Carolina Reaper oil (available to try in the restaurant and available for purchase).

Chefs must wear masks and gloves when preparing the ingredients for the Base Reaper and anyone who orders The Base Reaper is required to sign a waiver and wear gloves while eating.

So far, none of our taste testers have been able to get through one piece.

Check out Base Pizzeria at 3115 E. Lincoln Drive and see if you can stand the Base Reaper pizza!
