Pizza Hut has unveiled its newest concoction, a pizza that features a crust stuffed with a hot dog. A single, unbroken, circular hot dog encased in a pizza crust. And drizzled with free mustard (that’s quite a selling point).
But, in an apparent snub to fat-loving Americans, this specialty pie will only available in the UK. WTF, Pizza Hut? We poor Americans have to make do with the KFC Double Down to get our fast food fat fix? How dare you. According to Pizza Hut UK, there are no plans to release the hot dog stuffed crust pizza in the U.S. My guess is, though, that if it makes enough money there, it will be arriving on this side of the pond some unfortunate day soon.
I did some quick calculations, and discovered that a standard 12-inch pizza would contain a circular hot dog boasting an approximate circumference of 37.699 inches (using a ∏ value of 3.14159). A 38 inch long hot dog! Talk about a sausage fest.
If I had the opportunity, I would definitely try it. And I’m certain I’d like it. But, I can’t get it, and that’s probably for the best. No one
wants needs that much salt and grease. But it probably tastes so good. I’m so conflicted.
From CBS News’s site: “ABC News reports that a slice of plain stuffed crust pizza contains about 265 calories with 11.6 grams of fat and a hot dog contains about 170 calories and 15 grams of fat, although an official calorie count for the pizza was not listed.”
That’s 435 calories and 26.6 grams of fat per slice!
I’ll pass. UK can keep it. Pizza Hut sucks, anyway.
My ex-husband used to make us frozen pizzas with cut-up hot dogs as a topping. I always thought they were strangely good, which is why I was sort of interested in the Pizza Hut version. But, you’re right – Pizza Hut kinda sucks. And that’s way too many calories and fat grams for a stinkin’ slice of pizza.
Wow. I would almost rather see how the hotdog itself is made rather than see how this crust is made.
This is not new at all. South east Asia Pizza Hut already had this since 2008. The sausage used in Singapore and Malaysia are nothing like sausage all because of lots of additives. It is like drug. Bet you won’t be able to get them to like American or European sausage because it is too healthy compared to their own version.
