PUBLIC OPINION > Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza Is a Gross Idea

Living 2012/04/12 22:01:19
We can see the logic behind stuffed crust pizza. You're basically just adding more of an ingredient that's already on the pizza (cheese) to ease the blandness of the crust. But "hot dog stuffed crust"? Where did that come from? Pizza Hut launched the idea in its UK branches this month, and we're really not sure how to handle it. Is it genius? Is it absurd? Is it literally the worst idea in pizza history? We took it to the public.

Just as we suspected. Hot dog stuffed crust will attract some adventurous eaters, but overall it just sounds terrible. "Gross" voters called the innovation "disgusting," "revolting," "absolutely nasty," and our personal favorite: "EEWWEWWWWWEWWW." The third of respondents who found it appealing called the idea, "wonderful," "delicious," "beyond belief," and "not great, but not gross either." (But hardly anyone was OK with that free "mustard drizzle" offer.)

Men Want More Meat

The first demographic breakdown we noticed was male versus female. Men were more likely to try the hot dog stuffed crust pizza, but even they were split. It does seem like a "manly" product, in that it's loaded with phallic meat and a little bit impractical.

Atheists Believe in Dog

One of the only demographics to side strongly with Pizza Hut's grand idea was atheists. We're going to have to defer to Freud on this one, and suggest that perhaps the semantic resemblance of "dog" to "God" is a way for the unconscious mind to unveil repressed intentions... Just kidding.

It's A-OK in the UK

We found it a bit odd that Pizza Hut was marketing hot dog stuffed crust pizza in the UK, and not in America. After all, the origin of the term "hot dog" is American, Pizza Hut is American, and grotesquely unhealthy fast food is American. So why the UK? Well... because UK voters actually like the idea. Case closed.

  • ProVega 2012/04/13 19:27:38 (edited)
    Great Idea but with only the best quality kosher hot dogs or Italian sausage used. Yum.
  • Corsair 2012/04/13 19:16:52
    It would be worth a try.
  • Bill 2012/04/13 19:15:31
    There you see! This is why there are no English cook books! I'm surprised they haven't boiled pizza, they boil everything else !
  • ticlo7 Bill 2012/04/14 14:18:15
    Actually we prefer to fry everything, thank you.
    Besides, it's not just the English. The Scottish deep-fried Pizza and Mars Bars. Compared to that Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza Crust is looking pretty damn good right now.
  • Bill ticlo7 2012/04/14 16:15:41
    Being of Irish extraction, I know the people of the all the British Isles can't cook. A seven course Irish Dinner is a six pack and a boiled potatoe.
    There are subtle differences between European Heaven and Hell. European Heaven , the Germans are the engineers, French are the Chefs, Italians are vintners, British are police.
    In Hell the Germans are chefs, French are engineers,The Brits are the vintners and the Italians are the police
  • ticlo7 Bill 2012/04/15 12:29:43
    True. At least Britain has black pudding, thought I'm not sure what the rest of the world would prefer; black pudding or a boiled potato. We have scones though...
    I learnt it as In Hell the British are Chefs, the Germans are the police, the French are engineers, the Swiss lovers and the bankers Italian. Either way, never let the French be engineers.
  • Bill ticlo7 2012/04/15 14:44:48
    Black pudding woof. What are the French really good at?
  • ticlo7 Bill 2012/04/16 16:26:07
    The French? Err...they make good...cheese? I feel bad because the first thing that came to my head was 'surrendering'.
  • Bill ticlo7 2012/04/16 16:59:43
    In the "Short Books Dept.", French War Hero's
    The cheese is ok, just make sure to pronounce it properly or they get all miffed and pissy.
