Pizza Hut Middle East unveils cheeseburger stuffed crust pie
It’s a bit of irony that in Canada and the U.S., where waistlines don’t exactly resemble Calista Flockhart’s and writers use references to forgotten late-‘90s actresses, our fast food options are relatively tame.
No, really. It may seem that with items like the Baconator and Double Down we’re on a fast track to heart attack hell, but the big fast food chains from home often offer even more outrageous products at their restaurants abroad.
There is the Mega Egg at McDonald’s in Japan. There was the seven-patty Whopper at Burger King in the island nation, too. And released just this month at Pizza Hut in the U.K.: a pizza with a stuffed crust made of hot dogs.
Though, says Pizza Hut’s Middle Eastern outfits, is hot dogs the best you can do?
At Pizza Hut restaurants in the Middle East, where it serves diners in countries like Bahrain, Egypt and Turkey, the chain has debuted two pies sure to make cardiologists’ eyes roll.
One is bordered by chicken fillet sandwiches, the other by cheeseburgers.
Seriously! Check out the menu listing here, because there really is a pizza being sold with miniature cheeseburgers as its crust.
Burgers and pizza, you say, are two different tastes – how do they fit on the same fast food item?
Well, tell that to Burger King and Jack in the Box, who throw convention to the wind with their latest offerings: a bacon sundae at BK, a bacon milkshake at Jack in the Box.
