We’ve seen some weird food mashups in our time. Remember KFC’s pizza double? What a time. Well, now you can add another wild creation to the list because Pizza Hut has brought out the pizza schnitzel, aka the Schnitzza.
As Pizza Hut describes it, the schnitzza combines two of life’s best things – pizza and a chicken parmi. If you like both of those then read on because you are going to love the schnitzza.
What is a Schnitzza?
Essentially, what we’re dealing with here is a large round chicken schnitzel as a base and your favourite pizza toppings as a coating to create a pizza schnitzel hybrid.
Pizza Hut is releasing the schnitzza in four flavours:
The Margherita Schnitzza is a crispy chicken schnitzel base topped with Pizza Hut’s classic marinara sauce and gooey mozzarella.
The Hawaiian Schnitzza is a crispy chicken schnitzel base topped with smoky honey ham, juicy pineapple, Pizza Hut’s classic marinara sauce and gooey mozzarella.
Creamy Ham & Mushroom Schnitzza
The Creamy Ham & Mushroom Schnitzza is a crispy chicken schnitzel base topped with smoky honey ham, sliced mushrooms, creamy alfredo sauce and gooey mozzarella.
BBQ Beef & Ham Schnitzza
The BBQ Beef & Ham Schnitzza is a crispy chicken schnitzel base topped with crumbed beef, smoky honey ham, tangy BBQ sauce and gooey mozzarella.
Genius? Sacrilegious? Both?
Where can you buy one?
Schnitzzas will be available at Pizza Hut stores Australia-wide. It’ll cost you $15 to pick one up in-store or $18 for delivery.
You can find your local Pizza Hut store here.
So, do these two delicious meals deserve to go together? Look, I have some concerns, but I’m willing to be won over by the schnitzza. Catch me at my local Pizza Hut taking one for the team this weekend.
