“The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible,” Arthur C. Clarke said, and he was probably talking about Pizza Hut’s new pizza and chicken schnitzel hybrid. 

The fast food chain just unveiled their “schnitzza” range and it’s equal parts ludicrous and glorious. It’s a circular-shaped chicken schnitzel instead of a traditional dough base, with pizza toppings on top of it. That’s an insane amount of calories in one meal.

The “schnitzza” range is in Pizza Hut now and comes in four styles: Hawaiian, Creamy Ham & Mushroom, BBQ Beef & Ham, and Margherita. Margherita sounds like the safest bet out of the lot but Creamy Ham & Mushroom? I’m not so sure.

It’s unclear if they’ll be a permanent part of the Pizza Hut menu but in the meantime you can pick one up – if you dare – for $15 in-store or $18 delivered. Whatever you think of the “schnitzza” range, it’s undeniable that it sounds like a godsend for a hangover Sunday. I’m 99% sure that a few bites of one would cure you right away.

It comes hot on the heels of Domino’s creating an Aussie-themed pizza with their limited-edition Vegemite pizza. It honestly just looked like a Margherita pizza but with layers of extra salty goodness lying in wait underneath.

And somehow the “schnitzza” range isn’t the most cursed food creation of the week. Heinz and Terry’s launched the “world first” chocolate orange mayonnaise. A worrying blend of mayo and chocolate orange segments, cream patisserie, and an extra dose of orange oil, it poses a simple question: “why?”

The two food companies called it a “world-first festive mash-up you didn’t know you needed.” Thankfully, though, the chocolate orange mayonnaise won’t be going on public sale, with only 200 ‘lucky’ winners getting to sample the strange creation.
