Pizza Hut is now selling snake pizza in Hong Kong and I might have to book a flight real quick because that actually sounds delicious
· Nov 8, 2023 ·

Okay, I'm totally on board with this new recipe from Pizza Hut.

This is peak "nobody out-pizzas the Hut" right here. Like, never have I ever EVEN HEARD of snake as a pizza topping, but now Pizza Hut has just up and done it as if by some stroke of culinary genius. I hope you can tell I'm just fascinated by this; and you should be too. Let's see what this slithery pizza's all about.

The new offering combines shredded snake meat, black mushrooms and Chinese dried ham - all indispensable ingredients of an authentic snake stew and part of the Hong Kong franchise's marketing plot to generate buzz online.

Some diners in Hong Kong and around southern China have long enjoyed snake stew, especially during the colder months…

"Paired with cheese and diced chicken, the snake meat becomes richer in taste," Pizza Hut Hong Kong said in a statement before the dish went on sale last week, adding that the "nourishing" meat "can boost blood circulation" - a common belief in traditional Chinese medicine…

The chain has partnered with Ser Wong Fun - a snake restaurant in Central Hong Kong with roots dating back to 1895 - to come up with the latest recipe.

The 9-inch pizza, which comes with abalone sauce instead of the conventional tomato base, is on sale until November 22.

According to locals, fall is the best time to consume snake as the animals are naturally fattening up for the cold months. If you've eaten snake you know that it can be quite lean and dry at times, but once that extra fat starts to build up you'll find it quite appetizing.

And on pizza…

Yo, I know they eat some strange things in China, but this right here just looks like a delicious, delicious food coma waiting to happen.

Come on, you know you wanna try it!
