Steak 'n Shake Introduces a Pepperoni Pizza Steakburger
We've reported on a few different burger and pizza mash-ups on AHT, including the pepperoni and bacon Pizzaburger from Boston Pizza, Pizza Hut's experiments with cheeseburger pizza crust in the Middle East, and UK, Pizza Little Party's Megaburger pizza (to name a few), but none look quite as promising as Steak 'n Shake's new Pepperoni Pizza Steakburger ($5.49 with fries).
It's made with two smashed and seasoned beef patties topped with pepperoni, mozzarella and provolone cheese, and pizza sauce on a pretzel bun seasoned with garlic. Here's hoping the pepperoni slices are crisped up on the grill (they look a little limp in the photo) and the pretzel bun isn't too dense. If nothing else, it's got to be better than the new Double Cheeseburger pizza from Papa John's, topped with a Thousand Island-esque sauce ground beef, Roma tomatoes, and dill pickles.
What do you think about Steak 'n Shake's new burger/pizza hybrid?
