Lisa Beachy for Pizza Hut
Pizza Hut restaurants in the U.K. will now offer a "Hot Dog Stuffed Crust" pizza with a mustard drizzle. Sorry America, you won't see it on this side of the Atlantic any time soon.
"The Hot Dog Stuffed Crust pizza is only available in the UK and there are no plans to introduce this product in the U.S.," LISA BEACHY, a spokesperson for Pizza Hut, told HealthPop in an email.
ABC News reports that a slice of plain stuffed crust pizza contains about 265 calories with 11.6 grams of fat and a hot dog contains about 170 calories and 15 grams of fat, although an official calorie count for the pizza was not listed.
This isn't the only new offering from a fast food restaurant to raise eyebrows.
In the U.S., specifically Nashville, Tenn., Burger King is testing a "Bacon Sundae," food blog Grub Grade reported. The sundae appears to come with standard toppings such as fudge and caramel, but also includes a strip of bacon. The blog reports that the product is similar to a "Maple Bacon Sundae" sold at Denny's. According to Eater, Jack in the Box also unveiled a "Bacon Shake" earlier this year.
Burger King has no plans at the times to release the sundae nationally.CBS News
