    The Brits have outdone themselves with a new culinary creation: Pizza Hut UK has created a hot dog stuffed pizza crust.

    Holy shit! Stupidity gazumped! The KFC (Kentucky Fried Chemical) Corporation must be bustin' a nut!

    I like hot dogs, but somehow the thought of having one inside a pizza crust just doesn't appeal to me. I mean, when I'm eating pizza, I want it to taste like pizza. If I wanted a hot dog, I'd order a hotdog. Just like when I want a hot dog, I don't want mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce on it.

    Re:

    I'm sure someone out there has tried hot dog bits as a pizza topping... and I'm sure someone has also created a hot dog with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, too.

    Personally, I think I'd prefer a higher-end sausage of some kind instead of a hot dog in my pizza crust.

    Some of the billboard ads look like parodies of anti-smoking campaigns, so it's difficult to take them too seriously (though the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council isn't laughing).


    They could just put up billboards of the hot dog-stuffed pizza crust instead...

    I don't eat hot dogs anymore. Especially after my grandfather's comment..."They have to do something with the lips and assholes".

    Janet Riley, president of the hot dog council, said in a statement that hot dogs are "part of a healthy, balanced diet"

    Now I don't know which side is worse!

    It is fairly well established that cheap processed meats are 'dangerously' unhealthy, and putting them on a cheap processed bun with a bunch of processed chemicals certainly doesn't improve that, but neither does it justify a vague anti-hotdog campaign.

    Re: Re:

    Yes! If it was stuffed with Italian sausage rather than hotdogs, I'd probably like it.

    To be fair, the only stuffed crust I've ever tried had mozzarella inside it and while I had no objection to the use of cheese, the cheese and bread together with no sauce made it kind of dry.

    Hot dogs ARE deadly.

    It's an absolute, 100% certainty that anyone who eats a hot dog will eventually die.
