The crew had to hit the road to see why they said this pizza will melt your soul.
We are talking about Goodie House Pizza.
Raemie Cooley is the owner, and she fell in love with this pizza place when she was a kid.
"I think I was about three-years-old when we started eating here. Ever since it's always been my favorite pizza so it's kind of cool to own your favorite restaurant," Cooley said.
They make pizzas, calzones, and sandwiches.
The Fork in the Road team heard about a pizza challenge that is catching fire.
It's called The Death Wish.
A few of the toppings include several different sauces, pepper flake, Carolina Reaper, and Moruga Scorpion. You can see the full ingredient list in the sidebar.
The pizza is so hot that you have to sign a waiver just to try it...oh...and for the challenge...you only get one bottle of water.
You get your money back, you get a t-shirt saying you survived the Death Wish Challenge at Goodie House Pizza, and you get your name on the 'Wall of Flame.'
"They rate it in 'Scovilles.' A jalapeno is 200,000 Scovilles, the peppers that are on here are 2.2 million Scovilles, and the hot sauces are 4 million Scovilles," Cooley told us.
Mike Latta, Heather Goode, Ross Rowling, and Marty Ledbetter took the trip to Sullivan for the Death Wish pizza. One of them backed out when they got there.
