IRVING, Texas What do you call it when a customer eats one slice of 7-Eleven pizza topped with 7-Eleven’s 11-Pepper Sauce and a 2-ounce bag of Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper chips, and then washes it down with a can of Liquid Death Mountain Water?

7-Eleven calls it the One Slice Challenge, and it’s going on now through Oct. 31 or until supplies last.

“We want to celebrate the risk takers and those who are always up for a challenge by giving them a fun way to make 7-Eleven part of their daily lives,” said Amber Langston, 7-Eleven product director of pizza. “And what better way to try our new 7-Meat Pizza and 11-Pepper sauce than to combine them and add a satisfying crunchy chip to the top?!”
