KFC Launches Pizza with Fried Chicken Crust: The Chizza

Pizza’s only flaw is its lack of fried chicken, right?

KFC identified a major need in the global pizza market the human desire to eat pizza and fried chicken at the same time and created a product to address it. The KFChizza, however, is a pizza only in rhyme; the crust is made of fried chicken, and it’s topped with cheese, sauce, onions and pepper. As of now, the Chizza is only available in the Philippines.

It should be noted that this is not the first time a fast food chain has decided America needs pizza crust constructed of deep-fried chicken. In 2014, Domino’s developed a similar hybrid junk food, ominously named “Specialty Chicken.”

We wonder what Patrick Stewart, noted pizza crust theorist, would have to say about this recent development in pizza architecture.

That is disgusting. I love pizza and God knows I love my fried chicken but together? No way, nope. That’s sick. I hope it doesn’t come to America we have enough health problems as it is.

Terrible to mix food like that! Pizza is delicious and fried chicken is as well… (as best I remember) Leave it at that!

KFC is making a fried chicken pizza. Pizza Hut has a new pizza with hot dog crust. Little Caesars has bacon-wrapped pizza. Carl’s Jr has a hamburger with a hot dog and potato chips on it.
What the heck is going on?!

I don’t think I could eat that. I love both foods, just not together.

Microsoft announced Forza Motorsport 6: Apex last month at a media event held by the company to discuss their future plans for PC gaming. Now you’ve reached the point where you have to complete a Kanto sidequest unique to Pokemon Heart Gold, Soul Silver, and the original Gold, Silver, and Crystal. This leaves even the most deadly ground formation helpless in the face of heavily armored and well armed tactical aircraft.
