Peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese, bacon and eggs… just a few of the great ‘food – pairs’ we all learned to love throughout the years. They might have been an odd combination at first and we wondered “how on earth did somebody come up with that?” but eventually they grew on us.

It seems like the list will soon be getting longer.

If you ever wondered what a pizza-hamburger combo would taste like you will be happy to hear that a Canadian pizza and sports bar chain, Boston Pizza have recently unveiled: the Pizzaburger.

Boston Pizza began in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1964. Edmonton is home to more than 20 theatre companies, 60-plus galleries and exhibits, and the world-famous West Edmonton Mall, which has more than 800 shops.

Pizzaburgers are available in 2 flavours: Five-Cheese and Pepperoni & Bacon. The latter includes a half-pound Angus beef patty, signature pizza sauce, grated cheese, pepperoni and bacon. All this of course wrapped in hand-made pizza dough and baked until the crust is crispy. Boston Pizza sells the Pizzaburger between 9.99 Canadian dollars (CAD) and 12.99 CAD depending on market and other variables, according to the chain.

Although one would think this ‘beast’ needs little promotion, Mike Best, Chief Operating Officer of Boston Pizza praised the dish in a statement saying: “Some things just belong together, and the Pizzaburger, … is our take on the perfect food combination. Our customers crave diverse, robust flavors and the Pizzaburger offers just that. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser.”

While the Canadian public already had the honour of savouring the carnivore friendly meal for the past few months, people in the US will have to wait for the trend to spread as currently only the Dallas-based bars serve this delicacy.

So if all this made your mouth water and you happen to be living in or visiting Dallas don’t miss out on a chance to try out this match made in culinary heaven – they go together like J.R. and Sue Ellen on the Southfork Ranch.
