Will the portmanteau foods ever stop coming?
KFC’s latest Frankenfood is the “Chizza” — it’s a pizza with fried chicken instead of a crust. Be still, my beating heart. And call the ambulance .
Unfortunately (or thankfully), it’s only available at KFC in the Philippines for now. The commercial shows a piece of fried chicken (we’re assuming it’s boneless) topped with sauce, cheese, peppers, pineapples and pepperoni. Dare we say it sounds kind of good, in a kind of gross way?
Anyway, the commercial on YouTube boasts that the Chizza is “why you should forget everything you’ve learned about pizza!”
To be clear, KFC means if you’re a New Yorker, you should forget about a blistered, doughy crust from a wood oven, a rich, olive oil-velvety tomato sauce, slabs of real fresh mozzarella cheese and … dignity. Who wants to book a flight to Manila?
