Pizza Hut Cheeseburger Pizza Comes To Australia

The Pizza Hut cheeseburger-stuffed-crust pizza caused stomach-churning buzz when it became a part of the menu at locations in the United Kingdom last year. Now the 2,880-calorie pizza-cheeseburger hybrid monstrosity, which features a loaded Pizza Hut pizza with eight cheeseburgers baked into the crust, is making its way Down Under, and will start appearing at Pizza Huts in Australia.

The cheeseburger stuffed-crust pizza actually made out list of the most over-the-top international fast food items. Check out our picks here

According to a recent United Nations study, Australia is the fifth-most obese country in the world, ranking only behind Mexico, the United States, New Zealand and Chile, and almost one-quarter of the entire country is considered obese. Presumably, the introduction of a brand-new fatty food won't do much to help Australians get out of their overweight slump.

The cheeseburger crust will cost you $3 more than the average Pizza Hut pie. No word yet on if the burger pizza will make its way to American shores.
