A cheeseburger pizza

This is the new cheeseburger pizza from . Around 50% more calories than a normal pizza! Only available in the UK and Middle East for now.

I reckon it will be like the KFC Double Down. When it gets released everyone will want to buy one to try one, especially as public health zealots will go overboard condemning it. However most people will then discover it doesn’t really taste that good, and only order it once.

I do recall the queues for the Double Down though. They were massive with 20+ cars lined up at drive thrus. I reckon fast food chains hope their latest products will get condemned by the health zealots, just as movie producers hope a film will be condemned by religious groups – a surefire way to get free publicity and noost sales.

    Get ready for private health insurance people… as diabetes related illnesses go through the roof… as we continue to bring in low quality immigrants… to try to grow the economy… to pay for the hospitals (etc)… that will mainly be treating the results of unhealthy lifestyles like eating the pig food posted above

    I have a photo of a Domino’s delivery car going through the drive thru shortly after the Double Down was released.

    I think you are misattributing that photo. That photo has been supplied by Pizza Hut and the actual pizza will look nothing like it.

    Looks utterly revolting. I hope the health zealots dont complain about it, otherwise I will be duty bound to try one, just as I tried a double down (which I hated and couldnt even finish)

    Couldn’t agree more. There’s no better way to ruin a pizza than to put far too much on it.

    What a magnificent creation. Hope it comes here.

    Forget that shit Andrew…its BS. Salt doesn’t do dick. Cut the carbs and watch your BP…and a whole lot of other factors improve put of sight.

    DPF: You’ve done extremely well on the healthy weight front. This look at fast food is dangerous thinking!

    Stick with the healthy regime.

    IIRC, this was called the Crown Crust Pizza (or similar) and was being sold in Dubai in April / May last year.

    In a word: Massive!

    Pizza Hut ME comes up with all sorts of whacky items for their menu – this is but one example. I’m sure this CCP was even advertised as having 3000+ calories! 8O

    The pizza looks horrible. Not tempting in the slightest. Some of the TV burgers look pretty good, just to show I’m not a snob. But of course the actual burgers look nothing like TV. Another first world con.

    People queueing for the double down – pfffff pathetic.

    Quite sad that some even think this shit looks good, let alone tastes good.
    10 RTDs and a few joints – yeah! Ultimately this is food that the net TAXPAYER is paying for
