First there was hot dog stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut UK. Now, Pizza Hut Middle East is upping the ante with crusts made out of cheeseburgers and chicken strips. Clearly, Pizza Hut U.S. is getting the short end of the stick.
These Crown Crust Carnival pizzas aren't just about the pizza perimeter. Lest the cheeseburger crust was not enough meat, the pizza itself includes meat as a topping. Ditto goes for the chicken strips -- there is chicken both on the crust, and as a topping.
Eater points out that Pizza Hut Middle East is no stranger to novelty crust. In 2010, the company launched a similar "crown crust" pizza with meatballs and cream cheese.

American pizza clearly isn't what it used to be. Because if our country is no longer known as the kind of country that unnecessarily combines two unhealthy food items to make one ultimate food item (we're looking at you, KFC Double Down), then what do we have left? Our gluttony has been surpassed. We demand bizarre and totally unnecessary pizza crusts in the U.S. as well!
