In an apparent on-going effort to fatten up the rest of the world American-style, Pizza Hut — which just released a pizza with hot dogs stuffed inside the crust in the UK — is now offering a cheeseburger crust pizza in the Middle East.
Yes, this culinary abomination — called the “Crown Crust Pizza” — is no joke, and it has an equally appalling companion: a chicken nugget crust pizza. No wonder the Middle East hates America.
For starters, you have your choice of not one but two separate junk food items to have shoved into your pizza crust: cheeseburgers or chicken fillets.
Secondly, the toppings on the main part of the pizza are themed with the crust — so burger toppings on the cheeseburger crust, complete with special sauce, and barbecue sauce and green peppers on the chicken one.
Here are the official rollout videos…
We’re at the point where American fast food companies are immune to parody because they’ve effectively become a parody of themselves. It’s as if they’re saying, “Go ahead — mock us. We dare you. We’ll only respond with something even more ridiculous.”
Your move, Papa John’s.
