The temporary option that the & # 39; Canyon Hopper & # 39; called Evel Pie, was inspired by the swarm of locusts that recently invaded Sin City.

& # 39; Of course, it sounds nasty, & # 39; placed the restaurant with a photo of the insect-covered creation of the chef.

& # 39; But this pizza is damn good! It surprised us. We challenge you to try it! Available while supplies last. & # 39;

Although the pizza is sold out quickly, the locusts can linger for weeks, according to Jeff Knight, an entomologist at the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

The tongue in the cheek joked about the cake that sounded coarse, but hinted that it also contained arugula, which is green instead of a hopping.

& # 39; What started as a joke among our stoner friends, has conquered the nation & # 39 ;, said the restaurant in the announcement of the special menu item.

& # 39; When you were all fighting for Pineapple on Pizza, our pizza chefs planned another – The Canyon Hopper!

& # 39; Only the bravest daring can try it – Chorizo, Goat cheese, Caramelized Onions. Arugula and yes lime and garlic roasted grasshoppers! & # 39;

Las Vegas is in the middle of an epic grasshopper invasion, partly due to rainy weather, Knight said USA today.

& # 39; When we have wet winter or spring, these things often build up under Laughlin and even into Arizona & # 39 ;, Knight said in a press conference on Thursday in Las Vegas. & # 39; They will go north, and they will often move north like the center of Nevada.

According to the National Weather Service, there are so many locusts in Las Vegas right now that they can be seen on radar during the flight.

NWS Las Vegas tweeted an image of the radar scans on July 26 and wrote:

& # 39; Some of you have asked about the widespread radar return in #Vegas the past nights. Radar analysis suggests that most of these ultrasounds are biological targets. This usually includes birds, bats and insects, and most likely in our case -> locusts. (grasshopper emoji) & # 39;

It is unclear whether Evel Pie will search locally for the creatures for this feature item, but the managing partner Branden Powers told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the idea was specifically created while experimenting with fried grasshoppers.

& # 39; That is a kind of spirit from Evel Knievel, & # 39; he said about launching the final version that the public can buy. & # 39; And the spirit of Evel Pie is just to always be daring with your taste buds. Take chances. Take risks & # 39; s. & # 39;

The good news is that grasshoppers are not dangerous, and most species are not toxic, so they won't hurt the people of Vegas and that pizza is probably safe to eat if people want to give it a try.
