Domino's Australia Just Poked Fun At TikTok's Viral Watermelon Pizza

Want proof that TikTok is the wild west of recipe creation and food tips? Look no further than TikTok handle, @elburritomonster's watermelon pizza (via TikTok). The controversial video shows a watermelon being fried as the base of a soon-to-be pizza, topped with BBQ sauce, mozzarella, and chorizo, and then — yes– stuck in the oven. 

"It turned out so tasty in the end" TikTok handle @elburritomonster assures his followers. No one really bought into it, though — not even British rapper, Tyrone, who asked the question on everyone's mind, "Sorry what?" 

For the record, this is not the first time TikTok has tried to convince the world that unusual watermelon-based preparations are a good idea. The social media platform succeeded, for example, in making Lizzo drizzle her watermelon with mustard (via Pure Wow). And now, it's tricked Domino's Australia into making — and sampling — a watermelon pizza. Here's how it went down. 

Domino's Australia made a watermelon pizza for TikTok

It went about exactly how you'd expect it to go. Domino's Australia's intent at the unusual pizza was undertaken according to the TikTok post in question because "Y'all keep asking us for a low carb option." For the record, Domino's, low-carb means crustless, or even cauliflower crusts (which is how Halle Berry eats hers, according to Delish).

We digress. Domino's Australia had about as hard a time making the watermelon pizza as you did, watching them make it. The pizza chain quipped that the process of putting together the pie was "equally as confronting for us," although it did admit that "[the pizza] does look pretty good out the oven." That's about as good as it gets. The pizza chain was brave enough to try the mozzarella cheese and chorizo-topped watermelon slice (or, more plausibly, one employee lost a coin toss). It concluded — dare we say, inevitably? — "we think it might be an acquired taste." In other words, as Domino's clarified to terrified viewers, "we also weren't too into it."
