    Default Pizza Hut's Cheeseburger Pizza




    The pizza is billed as a "fun treat to share" and features ten mini burgers topped with mozzarella embedded around the crust. A large serving contains ten 288-calorie slices, and costs £2.50 more than a traditional deep pan.
    Just half the pizza is enough to account for 72 per cent of a woman's daily allowance of 2,000 calories. The chain's latest "crust innovation" follows others such as the Hot Dog Stuffed Crust and was first launched at its restaurants in the Middle East.
    Tam Fry, a spokesman for the National Obesity Forum, said: "If I had a family of ten and we had all been on a brisk five mile walk in the rain and lost our picnic on the way, I might just buy one to ensure that everyone got a warm something inside them.
    "For your average family, however, divvying this pizza up in any other way is unreasonable and irresponsibly marketed."
    Pizza Hut is one of a number of restaurant chains that has signed up to the Department for Health's "Responsibility Deal", a commitment to publish calorie counts, cut levels of salt and trans fats and promote healthier eating.



    Speaking yesterday, Pizza Hut insisted the "delicious limited edition" cheeseburger pizza was part of a wide ranging menu which also included pastas and salads.
    In a statement the chain said: "We are committed to producing a wide range of fresh, high quality food which can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet.
    "In facy every pizza in our restaurants comes with free, unlimited salad." The chain refused to comment on how the launch may affect its standing with the Department for Health.
    The launch comes just weeks after Nestle unveiled one of the most calorie laden chocolate bars in Britain, the Nestle wonka bar. The bar, contains up to 555 calories per 100g, more than a Mars Bar, Haagen Dazs ice-cream and twice as much as a Big Mac burger at McDonald's.

    I can assure you the pizza in that picture doesn't look like any of the pizzas (cheeseburger or otherwise) made here in the states.

    Most Pizza Hut food looks like an elephant sat on it before they served it. It's pretty though.

    It sad too because PH used to be really ggod before they went to selling high volume cheap crap pizza. And it wasn't cheap. I remember the deep dish being like $18 back in the 80's.

    ^ ^ It's pizza, I guess, but it's burned on one side.
    Pizza Hut down here has gotten really good lately. Not really pretty, like that picture, but it's actually good again.

    Pizza Hat doesn't qualify as food. I ate there once.

    Once.

    I swear they dump a cup of grease in the bottom of the pan before the dough goes in.

    Yeah, "just" half the pizza.

    I've never had pizza hut in my life. We went once because its right next to the cinema but after waiting over half an hour to be seated (because apparently you can't just go in, find a spot and order) we fucked it off and went and got kebabs instead.

    I had the worst food poisoning of my life from Pizza Hut. Didn't leave the bathroom for 5 days.

    I'm so glad I clicked on this. I'm stealing the idea for my teenaged son's birthday tomorrow. No pizza hut thanks, I'll make it from scratch. Great idea!

    OMG - where I live in the Northeast we have great pizza and pizza restaurants are everywhere - I can think of 4 within walking distance of my house. There is one Pizza Hut that I know of about 30 minutes from my house and I am always surprised that the parking lot has cars in it.

    I love pizza and could probably eat it daily. But, it has to be this pizza!! Oh, how I'm dying for a good slice. My trip to NYC this winter will be filled with pizza eating.
