While Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao scored a knockout today over Lucas Matthysse, an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) hit a homerun with his Pacquiao pizza.
To show his support for Pacquiao during the match, OFW in Trinidad and Tobago, Nestor Cabradilla, baked a caramelized onion and cheese pizza which outlines Pacquiao’s face.
In an online interview with The Filipino Times, Cabradilla said that ‘The People’s Champ’ has been an inspiration to him for a very long time.
“Ginawa ko po yung pizza na yan para kay Pacquaio bilang pag suporta sa laban niya. Idol ko na po si Pacquiao noon pa hindi lang dahil sa boxer sya kundi ang pagiging mabuti nya sa kapwa nya Pinoy. Halata naman na marami na siyang natulungan and I’m proud to say that he’s one of my inspirations,” Cabradilla said.
Cabradila made it with a layer of melted cheese, he began outlining Pacquiao’s facial features with black olives, caramelized onion, and feta cheese.
The whole process took the OFW almost 3 hours, including the baking time.
This is not the first time that Cabradilla drew inspiration from a Filipino personality and incorporated it to his baked pizza.
In June, Cabradilla also baked a Duterte pizza in celebration of Philippine Independence Day.
