I guess this shouldn’t surprise anyone. Just two weeks ago we were informed that U.K. Pizza Hut sells hot dog stuffed crust pizzas. It only seems logical that somewhere else in the world, namely the Middle East, Pizza Hut would come up with something even more meaty and deranged to do with their cursts.
Yet Pizza Hut Middle East’s cheeseburger-crust pizza is surprising—totally surprising—because unlike hotdogs, cheeseburgers aren’t perfectly shaped for jamming into a pizza crust. Without a picture, if someone said “cheeseburger crust” I would expect a pizza with a crust filled with ground beef and American cheese. Which is gross.
But no, what we have here is tiny little cheeseburgers—kind of open faced sliders—surrounding the crust of a pizza. It’s a little revolting—like sewing a doll’s leg to a teddy bear’s arm—but at the same time intriguing, just like every other product that stuffs one junk food into another junk food. It’s like a Russian nesting doll. How great to expect one thing and find that instead you have two or three.
