KFC really doubles down with their new fried chicken pizza mashup

Feb 10 2017, 6:31 pm

It’s Pizza Week at Daily Hive Vancouver! Any way you slice it, we’ll have you covered from breakfast to dessert and every kind of pizza in between.

KFC is certainly known for pushing boundaries when it comes to outrageous calorie bombs and food mashups (remember the Double Down?) and their latest creation doesn’t fail to disappoint when it comes to crazy concepts: Fried Chicken Crust Pizza.

Marrying the generallyย separate worlds of fried chicken and pizza, the #KFCChizza (of course) kicks crust right to the curb and replaces it with a heart-shaped deep fried chicken breast, and then tops it with sauce, ham, mozzarella, and pineapple. “All chicken, no crust,” baby.

If all that sounds like really good news to you (and let’s face it, it’s almost as tempting as it is revolting), sadly we are going to have to deliver some bad news: It’s not available in Canada.

The #KFCChizza is only in the Asian market, which means we Canadians just have to watch the horror (delight?) unfold with repulsion (envy?) via social media.

Or we can indulge in schadenfreude, because some customers are having a bit of a sad trombone moment when they open their boxes:

Of course, none of these soul-crushing moments are as bad as when your doctor says eating like this is killing you.

Still, consumers in Singapore are saying it’s really “shiok” (which is slang for something that provides sheer pleasure) and enthusiastically ordering up their Chizzas.

If it makes it to Canada, will you try it?

Think about it…
