I don't know if it's due to flagging sales or if it's just a way to get people talking about their restaurants again, but Pizza Hut Canada seems to be fully committed to the gimmick pizza game. They only recently introduced the Crown Pizza, which featured cheese and meatballs baked into the crust; clearly someone at Pizza Hut HQ realized that this wasn't quite ridiculous enough. They can do better. It was with that in mind, I'm sure, that Pizza Hut released their latest wave of gimmick pizzas, including Creamy Butter Chicken, Asian BBQ, and most ridiculously, Cheesy Beef Poutine. Yes, poutine on a pizza. I am inexplicably drawn to terrible novelty items from fast food chains (which almost never ends well for me), so I obviously had to try this.

I realize that I'm the guy who put Peeps on a pizza, so I don't have much room to talk, but ... poutine pizza? Really? If you feel like combining the iconic Canadian treat with our favorite cheesy delight, you can find it at Brado Pizza in Vancouver, British Columbia. Flickr member Foxtongue and her friends ordered the thing and took photos.
