Pizza Hut's Cheesy Beef Poutine Pizza
Pizza Hut's Canadian shops have released a new item -- the Cheesy Beef Poutine Pizza, a traditional pie topped with beef, cheese curds, french fries...and more cheese. Make of it what you will, but we can't help being curious as to how it tastes...for now, America will never know.
A press release from Pizza Hut, published on Eater, claims the poutine pizza was created “in tribute to the classic Canadian street food favourite,” although it seems more in line with all-American dishes like the Doritos Locos taco, the glazed donut breakfast sandwich, and the aforementioned Double Down than, say, a croque monsieur. Then again, it’s probably only a matter of time before a cross-border poutine pizza smuggling operation sets up shop; a pizza with French fries and beef on it belongs in the country that invented the carne asada and French fry burrito.
