LeBron James ordered a pizza with 16 toppings on it (pic)


LeBron James has been known to go on some pretty extreme diets during the offseason. But leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an NBA title evidently has allowed him to cut loose a little bit on the dining forefront.

James took to Facebook to post a screengrab of an online pizza order. It features a pie with a whopping 16 items on it.


So, to sum it all up, James started with high-rise dough, spicy red sauce and shredded mozzarella. A nice start, indeed. But from there, things quickly got out of hand.

James then added the following toppings: parmesan, grilled chicken, turkey meatballs, banana peppers, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, green bell peppers, kalamata olives, red onion, spinach, sea salt, oregano, arugula and an olive oil drizzle.

No word on who the Entree Simple Salad was for. Perhaps it was his appetizer. At least he had the good sense to order a S’more Pie. Although it’s hard to believe he would have had room to eat dessert after that over-topped pizza.

James notes in the Facebook post that one should never order food “while STARVING.” He clearly did not follow his own advice on that one.

It’s also worth noting that James also gives a shout out “to my Blaze Pizza fam,” in the post, a pizza chain with which James shares a business relationship, one highlighted by him ending a very lucrative endorsement partnership with a popular fast food chain last year.

So, not only was James ordering a pretty crazy pizza, he also was promoting his own brand. Suffice to say, James knows how to play the promotional game quite well. Although it didn’t take this recent social media post to establish that certifiable fact.
