Every slice comes with added cheeseburger. Fans of the free salad cart need not even tuck their bibs in
Calorie counters, look away now… Though the fact you’ve clicked on an article about pizza in the first place probably means you should stop torturing yourself by surfing for food porn anyway…
Just weeks after serving up the first batch of pizzas with hot dogs stuffed in the crusts here in the UK, Pizza Hut advanced the snack cause even further with the debut of the “Crown Crust Cheeseburger Pizza.”
Exclusive to the Middle East, the fast food innovation is described as the “most royal” pizza ever.
Presumably, that refers to the royal diet of Elvis ‘the King’ Presley rather than that of the Queen.
Certainly, it seems hard to visualise Liz Windsor plumping for a large 14 incher over cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off, even on a Friday night after the pubs have closed.
Quite the feat of culinary design, the fact that these pizzas have not been released in the American chain’s homeland could fuel conspiracy theories that the US is looking to spread a little of its status as the most unhealthy nation in the developed world – by making everyone else as chunky.
A moderately lighter pizza option is also available, featuring BBQ sauce-covered chicken fillets.
But in what directions can hybrid junk food diversify into next?
Freezer supermarket Iceland have long stocked the doner kebab pizza. Could Pizza Hut go that one step further and ram some mysteriously-sourced meat inside their grub’s crusts for an even bigger indulgent experience?
Anyone still hungry?
