Pizza Huts Offer Dessert, and Jalapeno-Filled Crusts Abroad
Pizza Hut is stretching the limits of pizza-stuffing capabilities with new creations abroad including the cheese and jalapeño-stuffed crust in Middle Eastern Pizza Hut locations (near and around the United Arab Emirates), and even more perplexingly—the “Star Edge Pizza” in South Korea, which features a surf n’ turf pizza slice and a crust stuffed with sweet turnover dessert. It’s dinner and a dessert all in one!
We have no idea how these unusual pizzas would fare if they were introduced stateside, but here’s a sneak-peak of the international Pizza Hut goodies: the jalapeño-stuffed crust is no joke, and is stuffed with cheese and red or green jalapeños, and topped with spicy nacho seasoning and chili hot sauce instead of traditional pizza sauce, making it one of Pizza Hut’s spiciest creations ever.
The extremely quirky Star Edge Pizza may as well be called the kitchen sink slice, because it’s topped with shrimp, calamari, homemade sausage, bacon, steak, broccoli, carrots and onions. At least this crowded stir-fry pie saves time and dishes by having the dessert in the crust. The two-in-one pie ends with a crust that’s shaped like little turnovers filled with either cranberries and cream cheese or cinnamon apple nut and cream cheese.
