Would You Eat An In-N-Out Burger Pizza?

While a simple cheese or pepperoni pizza can be a thing of beauty, there are those who insist on gilding the lily to the point where it starts getting ridiculous. Some pizza preferences may be cultural. It's true: Apparently, in Sweden, people really like bananas on their pizza, while coconut pizza's the in thing in Costa Rica. In Taiwan, mango, durian, and pig blood have all been part of the menu options at Pizza Hut. Closer to home, however, uncommon pizzas also abound, including such not-quite-ready-for-prime-time toppings as tuna, broccoli, and Thanksgiving leftovers. We've recently received word of yet another unusual offering, an In-N-Out burger pizza, and we're not quite sure how to feel about it.

This pizza was discovered by an Instagrammer who stumbled across it at a pizzeria located in the parking lot of an In-N-Out. Whether the two restaurants are affiliated or the one is merely paying homage to (or raiding the dumpsters of) the other is something we do not know. The pizza, however, is not topped with In-N-Out burgers themselves but appears to be adorned with various things you might find on such a burger and even comes complete with fries. The person in the video clip accompanying the post seemed to be consuming their slice with enthusiasm, but how did the Instagram audience react?

This In-N-Out Pizza may just develop a cult following

We'd be inclined to consider those In-N-Out-inspired toppings to be, well, somewhat over the top, but we may be in the minority here. Most Instagram users seem positively included towards the peculiar pizza, posting comments such as "Wheeeee," "I'm down," and "Looks amazing," with one person even enthusing, "The most insane pizza I've ever seen and I f***ing love what I'm looking at." Many are demanding more information, disappointed that the original poster failed to supply the name and address of the pizza place. A few others seem to have guessed at the establishment, however, with one even supplying the pizza's description from the menu: "Meatballs, pickles, tomato, onion, and Thousand Island dressing."

Oddly enough, fries are not listed among the toppings for the In-N-Out pizza on that menu (if, indeed, it is the same restaurant), and yet these are clearly visible on the pizza in the video. There are even a few commenters taking swipes at In-N-Out's infamous fries, saying the ones on the pizza look a lot better than the ones served up by the burger chain. As one person jokes, "When the pizza place has better fries than the burger place.... "

So will burger-topped pizzas be the next big thing, with or without fries? It's too early to say, but if they are, Mickey D's would be advised not to jump on the bandwagon. It already tried making McPizza, which was a big old McFlop.
