Sri Lanka Pizza Hut’s ‘Birizza’ is a Biryani + Pizza Portmanteau

pizza-hut-sri-lanka-birizza

Listen up. Have you heard of anything like the Birizza, a combination biryani + pizza served at Pizza Huts throughout Sri Lanka? It’s a mashup of curry-spiced rice and a dough wrapper more akin to a calzone, and it’s suffering an identity crisis. Trust us — it has no idea what it’s doing at a pizza joint, either. Not to say that we’re complaining — it looks absolutely delicious.

The Birizza is offered in chicken or paneer (cubed cheese) and comes with an onion salad and a spicy sauce. The jolly 20-somethings in this commercial seem to dig it. Now, howabout you send some over here, Pizza Hut?
