It is three times hotter than the world’s strongest chilli and even police pepper spray.

So it is perhaps unsurprising that only nine people have ever completed the Saltdean Sizzler pizza.

Spicy food fanatic Paul Brayshaw has created the pizza, which he believes is the hottest in the world.

The 32-year-old, who owns Paul’s Pizza in Saltdean near Brighton, East Sussex, has sold 1,307 of the pizzas since he started making them last year.

But only eight men and one woman have ended up on the ‘Wall of Flame’ to prove their success in eating the pizza.

Those who have failed end up on the ‘Wall of Shame’ inside dad-of-two Mr Brayshaw’s restaurant.

He said: ‘I have always loved spicy food and that was what initially put the idea in my head.

‘I also like watching the programme Man vs Food and that inspired me to add this to my menu.

‘The pizza starts of a nice red tomato colour but adding the sauce turns it into an evil black/red.’

Mr Brayshaw says he has only ever eaten two slices of the pizza - you need to complete all six before being allowed on the ‘Wall of Flame’.

He has contacted the Guinness World Record’s office who told him to send his pizza away for testing at Warwick University.

He is waiting for confirmation to say this is the spiciest pizza in the world but says he was told by the Guinness World Record office that if he managed to get over 1 million on the Scovell scale it would be the spiciest on record.

He creates this level of spiciness by using one of the world’s hottest chillies - the ghost chilli - and making a chilli paste with chilli extract to bring the spice level up.

The 10 inch pizza - which sells for £10.99 - has a standard pepperoni topping but this can be removed for vegetarians without compromising on spice.

I'd be scared of what would happen when it's time for the pizza to come out. I wouldn't be able to sit down for weeks!!!

Meh, not bad. I had a pizza once with ghost peppers, habaneros, jalapenos, and stuffed crust, so I think that takes this. Let's say FIFO happens - Fire In, Fire Out

^^^^This by far. I have had to recently cut back on the spice foods and I know I would never get past the first bite.
