Sign of the Apocolypse or greatest invention ever? Or somewhere in between?

Perhaps you've heard by now of the Crown Crust pizza, the pizza-cheeseburger hybrid recently unveiled by some of Pizza Hut's international franchisees. Available only at Pizza Hut Middle East, this fast food chimera features a vaguely crown-shaped crust studded with "cheeseburger gems," topped with lettuce and tomato, and drizzled with "special sauce."

So? Will you be starting an online campaign to Pizza Hut to have them import this majestic pizza to a franchise in your neighborhood?

@tsarstepan,
Will I?

No.


Next question?

It looks like some sort of multiple-sided geometrical entity chundered.

Or laid eggs, and another one put yellow sperm on top and then it rotted.

@tsarstepan,
It looks like some party item found in a 1960s recipe book.

Pass.
No, I won't be starting an online campaign to Pizza Hut to have them import this lumpy pizza to a franchise in my neighborhood.
Even though it has "cheeseburger gems" & is drizzled with a "special sauce"! Smile

The Romneys will enjoy it while laughing gaily and exclaiming "The poor? Let them eat Red Barons "

@tsarstepan,
Looks like they're trying to poison middle-easterners with the same fatty food we (US people) have been eating.

@tsarstepan,
Am I the only one scared to ask why they put "special sauce" in quotes?

@DrewDad,
I find those lumpy "cheeseburger gems" more of a worry.

Yes, I noticed that they look like the brains of a small animal, with a little orange cheese cap.

(and the cheese looks rather sickening too)

It would still be frighteningly unhealthy.

@dlowan,
and just what is Velveeta that it can melt so easily? Seems like a chemical experiment turned into a money making venture.
Notice that Velveeta uses alginate which is a chemical used for taxidermy. Now why would I want that inside me?

How does McDonalds' market special sauce for their Big Mac burgers? Maybe Pizza Hut is laying a fast food homage to the Big Mac and its famous ad jingle? Razz

Particularly if it was a meal for just one person!
But if a crowd shared it .....?

It looks like a Jack of Many Fast Foods but Master of None. Just look at the tomatoes in the pile of the middle. They're barely red. Most likely flavorless and hardly ripe. That's just one ingredient.

@msolga,
Still made of crap and bilge!

Sure, a bit of that wouldn't hurt...but we see the effects of mass marketed fast food all the time. I hate seeing the pushers moving into new countries.

@dlowan,
Well I can't argue with that!

Crap & bilge with a mystery sauce.

I'm starting to feel a bit bilious!

@msolga,
It's the alginate that does it. Makes the stuff just kinda sit there, looking tempting and nauseating at the same time.

Considering I used to eat the school lunch with unknown products in school, this Pizza Hut thing looks almost normal.
