Pizza Hut Stuffs Crusts With Fish Eggs

20140327-SCC_Over-viewPizza Hut is a global menace. They simply won’t stop stuffing terrifying and unusual things in their pizza crusts. While nothing will ever top the horror of the Marmite-stuffed crust, the new Flying Fish Roe Salmon Cream Cheese Pizza is even stranger to Americans: its crust is stuffed with salmon-flavored cream cheese dotted with flying fish roe. Yep, fish eggs.

Here’s the TV ad for this limited-time monstrosity. Even if you don’t speak Cantonese, swirling fish eggs and pretty ladies are an international language that everyone understands.

The toppings themselves sound quite appealing. The fish egg pizza comes in two versions. There’s the Crayfish Seafood Deluxe, which features, as you might imagine, seafood. Toppings include crayfish, scallops, shrimp, clams, cherry tomatoes, peppers, red onions, and Thousand Island sauce. For people who want less fish on their fish egg pizzas, there’s the Sausage, Pepperoni & Pomelo. Pome-what?

A pomelo, as it turns out, is a very large pear-shaped citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia that tastes like a milder, less bitter version of a grapefruit. People do put them in salads, so it’s not a completely wacky pizza topping. that’s not the only fruit on this pizza: it also has sausage, pepperoni, cherry tomatoes, peaches, mushrooms, peppers, and berry sauce.
