Poke Pizza: Is Hawaiian Hoboken Fusion a Match Made in Heaven? || Really Dough?

There are dozens and dozens of pizza shops in the city of Hoboken. But only one that has dared to do what few have done before: top a pizza with raw fish. Traditional Hawaiian poke no less. So on this episode of “Really Dough?” Scott and Mark are dipping their toes into the world of poke pizza with a pie from Makai Poke Co. in Hoboken, NJ. Will Mark call it a pizza? Will Mark kick Scott out?

Pizza is one of the most customizable foods in history. Tomato sauce, white sauce, artichoke cream sauce, broccoli, M&M’s, pineapple, edible 24K gold — a pizza can be anything your heart desires. But should it? Renowned pizza nerd Scott Wiener is challenging the idea that pizza can be anything. He’s traveling all over America, spotlighting these Frankenstein pizzas and trying to make a case for whether these new customizations can, in fact, still be considered a pizza. In the end, Wiener takes these pizzas to Lucali to pass final judgment from the purist of all pizza purists, Mark Iacono, where he will either declare each slice “PIZZA!” or ask with complete disgust, “Really, dough???”
