Hot Dogs and Pizza? Together?

After the seriously cool science posts of the last couple days, how about we try to gross you out now?

Hot dogs are a staple food for many of us as kids. Pizza is too. There is nothing that I like more than  scrumptious slice of pepperoni and sausage pizza. I don't care how bad it is for me.

Now Pizza Hut in the UK wants to give you both vivid tastes. AT THE SAME TIME!

We've had the Stuffed Crust pizza from the same restaurant, a pizza with gooey cheese *inside* the crust as well as on top. It was enough to make your mouth water (and then get glued shut when you took too big of a bite).

They want to give you that same experience, but with hot dogs. That's right. A hot dog stuffed crust pizza.

(Thanks to ABC News)

Doesn't that just look yummy?

And don't forget the mustard drizzle! Because really, who doesn't want a little mustard on their pizza?

Don't all raise your hands at once. I'm sure there's enough for everybody.

Is anybody else seriously grossed out by this like I am?  I love both of these foods, but I really don't want to taste them together. And who has mustard on their pizza?

Sure, all you legion of mustard-eating pizza fans, go ahead and storm the gates of my castle and show me the light, but I just can't see it.

That's not the grossest-sounding food image I've seen this week, though. That has to be the thought of Oreo cookies dipped in nacho cheese (thanks to Dan Ryckert, from Game Informer Magazine for that horrible image, and seriously, do you all see what you're missing by not being on Twitter?)

Thankfully, I couldn't find a picture of this, as I think it would truly disgust me. I am a benevolent blogger, and won't gross you out *too* much.

But Dan says it tastes great. Either he's insane (quite likely) or maybe I'm missing something?

Would you try it if it were offered to you? And would you buy a Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza?

The mind boggles.


  1. I was talking to our mutual friend, Derek Jones (in the UK) the other day and he was getting ready to tuck into pizza with barbeque in a stuffed crust. As that sounded very uber-American, I was amazed I hadn't heard of it. Same goes for hot dog stuffed crust pizza, which, btw, yacked me out the same way it did you. There are definitely some foods which fall into the "never the 'twain shall meet" category for me, and that would be such an application. Hot dogs? Great! Pizza? Great! Both together? No, thank you.

    Oreos dipped in cheese? Prob not. I'm trying to think if there's anything I eat that could potentially yack someone out, but I don't do majorly weird food combos. A favorite sandwich is American cheese, mayo, fresh tomato slices and Nacho Doritos ON the sandwich, but most people don't find that one all that weird. It's a variation on the summertime favorite of tuna salad with plain Ruffles potato chips layered into the sandwich. :) At least, that's an old southern standard. I just swerved to the Doritos application on a cheese sandwich and liked it.

  2. I'm glad you and I are in agreement in our yacking! :)

    It's funny, but I used to have told to me when I was a kid "they're all going to the same place anyway." I always responded with "yeah, but I don't have to taste them when they get there!"

    I'm not a big "weird" food eater, so I'm with you on that.

    Wasn't sure if this post would bring a comment from you, but I knew the other one would. :)

  3. Maybe italian sausage instead of a hot dog.

  4. Now *that* would be good.

    Thanks for stopping by, Nathaniel!
