Cheeseburgers and pizza together at last in one epic meal

PIZZA and cheeseburgers. A match made in heaven or a fast food Frankenstein?

Pizza Hut has played mad scientist with its latest creation, Cheeseburger Crust.

It's pizza just as you know it, except this one's made with eight Australian beef patties with tasty cheddar cheese on top merged into the crust.

It's turning heads, but not everyone is impressed.

Sunshine Coast Dietetics principal Sally-Anne Livock said it was "horrific."

"It's pretty horrible from where we stand," she said.

Would you ever try Cheeseburger Crust on your pizza?

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

"There are enough unhealthy options out there already."

Ms Livock called on Pizza Hut to look into a gourmet range and produce pizzas not high in kilojoules (kJ) and saturated fat.

"If they want a point of difference, look at something tasty and healthy, not something that's completely ridiculous as far as health goes," she said.

A Pizza Hut spokeswoman said the cheeseburger crust would add an additional 700kJ, or 167 calories, to the pizza.

Pizza Hut Australia general manager Graeme Houston called it an amazing new product.

"This will blow burger and pizza lovers away,'' he said.

"It's delicious, it's fun and we're still trying to figure out the best way to actually eat it."
