Cheeseburger stuffed pizza

I’m sure that by now you’ve heard that Pizza Hut has created a “cheeseburger stuffed pizza”. Personally, I think that this sounds revolting. Don’t get me wrong I love pizza and I love a good burger but in my mind those items do not belong together. It’s also got me to thinking about this interesting dichotomy we’re seeing in the world of food these days. As people become increasingly health conscious there also seems to be a growing proliferation of over-the-top decadent creations. It’s like we’re thumbing our noses at health professionals (yep, I’d be one of those) who are preaching the importance of eating a healthy diet. Little do we realise that we’re only hurting ourselves. No skin off my nose if you want to wash down a cheeseburger stuffed pizza with a large pop. Okay, actually, it drives me nuts! WHY would you want to do that??? I understand the allure of duck fat fries and I am the same girl who hosted a bacon-themed potluck for my birthday a couple of years back. I’m okay with a little decadence now and then. But use it wisely and in moderation. Realise that whether you’re having a double down at KFC or a gourmet steak and those aforementioned duck fat fries that this should be a very occasional occurrence and you probably shouldn’t eat the entire portion. This is not how you should be eating on a regular, or even semi-regular, basis.
