Pizza Hut has found a brand new way to lure folks in Hong Kong to its restaurants.
Those who prefer a little fish with their pizzas should definitely consider giving the company’s Flying Fish Roe Salmon Cream Cheese Pizza a shot at some point in the near future. Unfortunately for curious parties living in other parts of the world, the concoction is only available in Hong Kong.
Before we get to the toppings, let’s discuss what’s hiding inside the crust. According to Time, folks who bite into Pizza Hut’s latest offering will find their mouths filled with cream cheese and fish eggs. For those of us who aren’t into fishy foods, this definitely doesn’t sound like a very pleasing experience.
Here’s the official commercial for the Pizza Hut’s fish roe pie. Thankfully, you don’t necessarily need to speak the language to get the point.
The Consumerist points out that Pizza Hut patrons have two variations of the fish egg pie to choose from. The first one we’ll tackle is the Crayfish Seafood Deluxe, a creation that comes topped with “crayfish, scallops, shrimp, clams, cherry tomatoes, peppers, red onions, and Thousand Island sauce.”
The other offering available at Pizza Hut locations throughout Hong Kong is the Sausage, Pepperoni, and Pomelo pizza. In addition to the aforementioned meats and fruit, this concoction features “cherry tomatoes, peaches, mushrooms, peppers, and berry sauce.”
If chowing down on cream cheese and fish eggs sounds a little too adventurous, then you can always take a trip to Australia for a slice of cheeseburger crust pizza. Although the creation was originally offered in the United Kingdom last year, the pie has officially made its way Down Under.
“This amazing new product will blow burger and pizza lovers away. It’s delicious, it’s fun and we’re still trying to figure out the best way to actually eat it: Burger first or pizza first?” Pizza Hut said in a recent statement.
While it’s unclear how many calories have worked their way into each slice of the fish eggs and cream cheese crust pizza, the folks at The Guardian pointed out that the cheeseburger crust creation will fill you with 280 calories per slice. If you choose to eat the whole thing, then you’ve just consumed a whopping 2,800 calories.
Are you adventurous enough to bite down on Pizza Hut’s fish eggs and cream cheese pizza? Do you think people in the US would warm up to this sort of specialty pie?
