Robert Henson and Brandon Andrus decided to take the pizza challenge at the Islander Pizza & Pasta Shack, but in the end were defeated by the 12-lb.-plus black olive and pepperoni "Sasquatch."
The two dropped by the Sequim landmark Thursday afternoon to take up the challenge thrown down by Islander co-owner Ken Cran: anyone who can complete one of his 30-inch diameter monsters in 60 minutes pays nothing.
"They got about halfway through in 30 minutes," Cran said, "then took a break." After returning to the table they downed "a couple more pieces," then called it quits.
The boys acknowledged before digging in that losing the challenge and ponying up the $60 purchase price wouldn't be the worst fate. "We can take home whatever we don't finish."
"You can eat on that for a month," Cran said.
