Back in 2010, Burger King announced its NY Pizza Burger, which was four times the size of a regular burger, came on a nine-and-a-half inch sesame bun and, at $13 a pop, contained just over 2,500 calories. Despite all the fanfare, however, it was really just an oversized Whopper with cuts in it.
This, on the other hand, is a work of art.
Brought to us by one of Canada’s largest casual dining chains, Boston Pizza, the Pizza Burger is admittedly more like a burger calzone than a pizza burger and comes in two varieties: The Pepperoni & Bacon and the Five-Cheese. The Pepperoni & Bacon features toasted pizza dough surrounding a half-pound prime rib patty with pizza sauce, pepperoni, bacon and mozzarella, and the Five-Cheese envelops the patty with mozzarella, cheddar, feta, asiago and parmesan.
Currently, the Pizzaburger is available at all 345 Boston Pizza locations across Canada from now until June 2, but unfortunately the company, which is known as Boston's: The Gourmet Pizza, has announced no plans to introduce the menu item in the States, though we all know it totally should.
Come on, it’s a burger in pizza form or a pizza in burger form. Let’s not let Canada have all the fun.
