First, Pizza Hut in the UK and Canada unveiled the hot dog stuffed crust pizza. Not to be outdone, Pizza Hut in New Zealand stepped it up a notch this year with the Chili Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza.

The crust features hot dogs with chili sauce (think: chili cookout kind of chili) embedded with little pieces of cheese. The pizza comes with ketchup and mustard packets too. If you’re not that into chili, They also carry a Cheesy Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza with sweet tomato mustard sauce. Oh gosh, I think I can hear my cholesterol levels rising as we speak.

Domino’s has unveiled a slightly strange sounding “pizza” called “Speciality Chicken.” I’m a little lost on the overall angle behind this poultry-based creation, but here are the basics. It’s a pizza-like dish that’s had all of the dough swapped out for “12 bites of lightly breaded, 100 percent whole breast white meat chicken”. The chicken base can be dressed with a variety of toppings, including various sauces, meats, cheeses or veggies. The chicken pizza comes in four flavors: Crispy Bacon and Tomato, Spicy-Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo and Sweet BBQ Bacon.

horror pizza 1

Just when you thought it was safe to order take out, Freddie Krueger is hiding in your pizza. You can blame Wilhelm Rodriguez of Papa’s Pizza in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico. The talented food artist carves portraits of horror movie icons like Jason and Chucky and recognizable faces like Daryl Dixon into cheese pizzas carved pumpkin style. The art form uses negative space just as much as the cheese, and it’s pretty impressive.

It may surprise you to learn that there is a U.S. Pizza Team, and that Rodriguez is on it. He’s not only good at creating pizza portraits, he can throw around dough like no one’s business.

Check out more of the spooky pizza art after the break along with a video of his dough tossing skills.

pizza cake

Mmm, doesn’t this pizza look delicious? Well, joke’s on you because it’s actually not a pizza, it’s cake. As far as pranks go, it’s probably one of the best ones to be on the receiving end of.

YouTuber kawaiisweetworld created a video showing you how to re-create this dessert with red buttercream, shredded coconut, berry fruit roll-ups, and a few other ingredients. Just make the cake and then carefully decorate it to make the top look like pizza. It’s crafty, and it looks really tasty.

Learn how to replicate this tricksy dessert in the video after the break.

In case you haven’t noticed, Japan has kind of a thing for Kit Kats. They’ve got Toasted Kit Kats and a Kit Kat Store, so Kit Kat pizza is clearly the next logical step.

They’re available in a small for 1,390 yen ($13.40) or medium for 1,680 yen ($16.20) but only through August 31st.

Pepperoni pizzas can exist in the wild according to photographer Jonpaul Douglass. He’s been using $5 pizzas from Little Caesars in his photo series titled “Pizza In The Wild.”

Douglass was inspired by seeing pizza graffiti in his neighborhood. Once he found affordable pies of the right size, he started posing them on locations such as a pony, a basketball pole, or just on the ground. It’s a weird and fun series of photos, but mostly I want to rescue all the wasted pizza by putting it in my tummy.

As any good adventurer knows, if you’re trekking out into the wilderness, you need to bring an ax. You know… for firewood and zombie hunting and stuff. But what if you want to make pizza out in the woods? What will you use to slice it up? Can’t use your bare hands–that’s just barbaric, sir.

Well, lucky for you, hypothetical pizza-loving woodsman, you can now use this pizza ax when you’re out in the forest. It looks like an ax, but you can’t cut trees with it. Only pizza. Please remember that.

deep dish pizza

Last Fall, John Stewart started a small war when he suggest that deep dish pizza isn’t pizza but “tomato soup in a bread bowl… an above ground marinara swimming pool for rats.” Them there are fightin’ words!

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel responded by sending Stewart a “deep dish with dead fish” pizza—suggesting that Stewart would be sleeping with the fishes for the insult to Chicago.

Now, real chefs are weighing in through Eater’s Pizza Week and it looks like they’re agreeing with Stewart. First there’s Graham Eliot of Bistro in Chicago saying,

“Jon Stewart pretty much nailed it…I can easily say, as much pride and love I have for Chicago, the deep dish pizza here is absolutely an abomination… I feel like it’s a lasagna with a crust.”

His thoughts are backed up by David Posey of Chicago’s Blackbird and Andrew Zimmerman of Minneapolis’ Andrew Zimmerman’s Canteen, with only New York’s Mathieu Palombino of Motorino disagreeing saying,

…think it’s for me to say it shouldn’t be called pizza. Some people call it Chicago-style pizza. It is what it is. Yeah, sure. If I go to Chicago, I’ll be trying that for sure. Yes, it is a pizza. I wouldn’t dare say no, this is not a pizza. Because there are people who like it and like doing it.

What do you guys think? Is Chicago Deep Dish pizza or not?

Stuffed crust pizzas are a big thing with Pizza Hut, but the fillings are usually normal pizza toppings like cheese and meat. Not so if you live in New Zealand. They’ve introduced a cheese and Marmite stuffed crust. Marmite is a yeast-based spread similar to Vegemite that they say is an acquired taste, and if you’ve ever tried the stuff then you’ll understand why. Ew, New Zealand, this just looks nasty.
