Meat the pizzaburger – a bacon cheeseburger wrapped in a pepperoni pizza and cooked like a calzone
- The burger packs 1,360 calories and 2,000 milligrams of sodium
Created by Boston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar, the pepperoni pizza-wrapped bacon cheeseburger packs a walloping 1,360 calories and 2,000 milligrams of sodium. Available now in the chain’s 40 US restaurants, it was initially launched at a Canadian subsidiary.
Baked in the same pizza pans used to make personal pizzas, the frankenburgers and have no illusions of being healthy.
‘We’re not pretending that it’s a healthy product,’ Brad Bevill, vice president of marketing for the chain said. ‘You’re talking about a hamburger and pizza wrapped together.’
A YouTube video shows cooks placing the burger, with all the fixins, in a pizza pan complete with an uncooked pizza. The burger is then wrapped in the pizza and tossed in the oven. People are soon shown enjoying the creation.
Though unhealthy, this burger doesn’t come close to the record-holding calorie bombs served at the Heart Attack Grill, in Las Vegas, NV.
The notorious restaurant serves bypass burgers, flatline fries deep-fried in pure lard and gives free food to anyone over 350 pounds – provided they climb onto a scale and prove it.
The shameless fast-food temple’s quadruple bypass burger hold the Guinness World Record for ‘most calorific burger,’ with almost 10,000 calories. Thrown in a butterfat milkshake and fries for a staggering 12,410 calorie meal – the equivalent of over a week’s worth of food.
At least one customer is known to have had an actual heart attack while eating in the restaurant
