The humble pizza crust: once just a convenient handle for holding a slice, is fast becoming a full-blown calorie-fest all on its own.
While we've been preaching about the ten foods you should avoid in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Pizza Hut has released a new hybrid pizza that takes fast food to a whole new level.
Enter the cheeseburger pizza.
At roughly 3000 calories per pizza, it features ten mini burgers topped with mozzarella embedded around the crust. It is then covered with all the toppings in the world and served with a fat-filled dipping sauce.
First the hot-dog stuffed crust pizza, and now this extraordinary, yet repulsive concoction.
Unfortunately (or not) the cheeseburger pizza is only currently available in the Middle East and UK, but it's rumoured to be hitting US shores soon, so who knows when it will head here.
In addition to the beef-topped pizza ringed by cheeseburgers, Pizza Hut Middle East also offers an option surrounded by chicken fillet balls and topped with, you guessed it, even more chicken.
So let's just break it down for a minute. At 3000 calories, one cheeseburger pizza is equivalent to eating 10 McDonalds cheeseburgers on their own, and no - that is not a challenge.
However, for 3000 calories you could also have about 30 bananas, over 44 weetbix or nearly 91 strawberries.
Make the right choice people.
