Pizza Heaven

Posted: Updated:

You can work up a great big hunger when you're an action hero, especially if you're playing a guy who's half man, half god. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson gets really hungry in his latest movie, "Hercules." Our So-Flo homeboy had to stay pretty jacked for the role. That meant watching his diet, but when it was finally time to let loose, he knew just where to go.

The Rock had to look as lean and mean as a Greek demigod when he took on the role of "Hercules." Things can get scary if you can't control your diet. Where do you go to feed a hero's hunger? Pizza Heaven in Weston has created a certain item the Rock's been craving for years.

This double dough delight didn't just drop out of the sky. It started when the big man bit into a regular pie.

Benny Tobia: "He loved it so much he wanted to know if we could make him a double dough, so we said, "Yeah," so ever since then we've been making this double dough for him."

The Rock's on a strict no-nonsense diet. Six days a week, but on the seventh day, watch out.

Benny Tobia: "When it's his cheat day, he'll have one of these."

Don't expect Dwayne to share any of his pie when he hits the table. It's his and his alone.

Benny Tobia: "He eats. It's the cheese, the sauce. It rushes through his blood, his muscles, get big, you know? It's just a fabulous thing to eat."

When he's home, the Rock will come and get the double dough, or the double dough will come to him.

Benny Tobia: "When he's in town, he'll come in, he'll pick it up, or we'll deliver it."

The pizza has been a secret for a while, but not anymore.

Benny Tobia: "It is not on the menu, but if people know of it they can order it, yes."

Dwayne likes his with just cheese and sauce, but you can order yours any way you want.

Benny Tobia: "They can come in here, order whatever they want, put whatever they want on it. We can accommodate that."

What would you give the Rock if he wasn't in the mood for pizza on his cheat day?

Benny Tobia: "Probably double chicken parmigiana."

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.
