Pizza Hut New Zealand just posted this picture of their new pizza. Would you try it?

Pizza Hut New Zealand just announced that they will be offering a pizza for their stores Down Under: a “Chee-zee” Marmite and mozzarella-stuffed crust pie. For you Yanks, Marmite is a sticky-brown, salty spread similar to Vegemite that’s extremely popular in Australia, and is most often spread on breakfast toast (kind of like Nutella but without the chocolate or the hazelnuts). It’s a yeast bi-product that is derived from the sticky residue leftover from beer-brewing.

Most likely, such a product wouldn’t take off in America, but apparently New Zealanders are already pretty excited about the new pizza. A photo of the new creation on the company’s Facebook page garnered almost 700 likes with comments like “love it” and “what a great idea!” If you’re in New Zealand, try it out and order one online for only $8. 

For the curious, we've put together a quick guide on What is Marmite and What is Vegemite.
