Another surprising pizza flavor has been concocted! Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, many Taiwanese have opted to sacrifice their favorite roadside shacks (小吃) to eat at home.
With an eye on the recent turn of events, Pizza Hut has decided to bring Taiwanese delights to customers, and created local “braised meat” flavor topping past creations.
The new flavor consists of braised vegetarian meat, with pickled cabbage and shredded bamboo strips and mozzarella cheese as its base. The combination of western and eastern flavors are to be provided at all locations of the Pizza Hut buffet houses.
The pizzas will debut today (April 14) and are available in 57 branches.
Following the announcement, netizens took to the Internet to voice their concerns with many commenting that pizza shops should stop ‘playing with food’.
Others wondered if Taiwan was attempting to wage war with the Italians as the new flavor completely ruins pizzas’ origin and still others expressed disbelief that the pizza is priced at NT $399 but didn’t use real meat.
Besides the new flavor, Pizza Hut has remodeled its Taipei Dunbei branch into a retro building, with exposed red bricks and old signs to let customers fully experience ‘olden days in Taiwan’.
This isn’t the first time pizza restaurants in Taiwan have created out-of-the-world flavored pizzas. From boba milk tea, stinky tofu and ginger flavors to glutinous rice sausage, Taiwanese continue to surprise the world with its creative pizza inventions.
