Burger King, the fast food chain, is to introduce the 'Pizza Burger’, a 2,520-calorie covered in mozzarella, pepperoni and pesto and marinara sauce. The NY Pizza Burger, due to debut next month at Burger King’s new New York flagship Whopper Bar restaurant, is four times the size of the chain’s Whopper, comes on a nine-and-a-half inch sesame bun, and is just over the 2,500 daily calorie allowance for men. The Pizza Burger contains 144g of fat, 59g of which is saturated, 3,780mg of salt, which is more than double the daily limit for adults, and will cost $13, or £8.40. Burger King has emphasised that the new offering is meant to be shared, but John Schaufelberger, Burger King’s vice-president, said it “demonstrates the type of menu offerings our guests can expect.”
