The Cone Crust Pizza from Pizza Hut Middle East is the daredevil design of the season, vying with the Cheeseburger Crown Crust for freakshow pizza supremacy. Our dedicated correspondent in Dubai didn't cower in the face of this cream cheese and chicken-stuffed beast, but dove right in to take you inside and deliver the scoop on the stunt pizza of the moment!
The rage that is camel burgers hit Dubai two years ago when Arabic restaurant Local House slid a camel patty into the hollow pocket of a khameer, traditional, pita-shaped leavened bread studded with sesame seeds. This innovative burger move garnered adulation from most major newspapers around the city, with practically every article raving about a surprisingly juicy patty that grunts back at misconceptions about camel meat being tough. Would I get to ride the same juicy, fat-free, exceedingly creative camel journey that the food reporters had embarked on?
A few days ago, Robyn Lee had posted about the burger reincarnation of a pizza that Pizza Hut in the Middle East has created in their murky pizza laboratories. Today, having grabbed lunch at a Pizza Hut branch in Dubai, I'll tell you what the cheeseburger pizza construction actually tastes like.
Here's a sampler plate of what Dubai has to offer—without the bling, the glam, the extravagance that this desert city has come to symbolize. These are the authentic, incredibly diverse flavors that can converge for someone who's willing to wind their way through the alleys of old Dubai and taste what's off the beaten, crystal-studded path.
