According to the Daily News, Burger King’s New York Pizza Burger will join the menu at BK’s flagship 24-7 Whopper Bar early next month. The burger-izza, which will be exclusively made in New York City, includes four whopper meat patties, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce, and god-knows how many preservatives and artificial, unpronounceable additives. The sesame-seed bun measures 9 ½ inches across.
BK argues that the burger is cut into six slices and is meant to be consumed by a half dozen friends. (Each slice is 420 calories with 24 grams of fat.) Though we’re willing to bet that many a customer will be inspired to down the entire burger in one sitting, or share between just two.
We’re still reeling from New York City’s super-low ranking on the America’s Fittest Cities list (we were #22, just ahead of Tampa, Florida). And the BK New York Pizza Burger seems designed to keep us buried at the bottom.
If you’re craving a burger, try a lean, organic elk burger. For pizza, try thin-crust perfection at Lucali’s in Carroll Gardens. BK’s attempt at fusion cuisine doesn’t deserve to last a New York minute.
