Why yes... I would like hot dogs in my crust

So those Asians... (I mean we Asians) really know how to change something. Not always for the better I might add. I like pizza. I really do. As one of those comfort foods when I'm crazy stressed, I don't think there's anything that can really match pizza. So whenever I'm given a chance to try a twist on it, I'll always be open to it. That's where Pizza Hut in Taiwan steps in. Over the Summer, they had this promotion called the 摩天倫(?) or 'mo tian lun.' If I'm wrong on that, someone please correct me. Basically it was a pizza that had hot dogs in the crust. If that were it, I don't think it'd be that special. No, on top of that was a pizza filled with ham, broccoli, cheese, and get this... Kewpie mayo and scrambled eggs. Yeah. Let that sink in for a second. It sounds disgusting right? Oh it is. The hot dogs were cool, it saved me the trouble of having to get hot dogs in Taiwan, and I love the Kewpie mayo, but I could do without eggs.

We also got a Kimchi Beef pizza, since it was b1g1. I think the total order came out to something like 699 NT ($23) for 2 pizzas, a thing of wings, and another of star shaped tater tots (which were really just frozen and refried). The Kimchi Beef pizza was pretty good. Instead of using tomato sauce, they use sweet bean paste, so it adds a semisweet aspect to a traditionally savory dish. It's not for everyone, but I certainly liked the twist.

Just an side comment... their wings suck. You get like 5 pieces of the smallest drumsticks and wings possible. They're also kind of cold. Seriously not worth it if you have to spend extra to get them.
