Coles Launches Chicken Parmy Pizza
The humble chicken parmigiana is an absolute staple at an Aussie pub.
While many people think that the chicken schnitzel couldn't be better, whack on a bit of melted cheese, parmy sauce and maybe some bacon or parma ham and you've got yourself a bloody delicious meal.
On another side of the culinary menu, pizza is also incredible.
Whether you're a margherita or four cheeses or meat lovers, the carb-loaded meal is enjoyed by people all around the world.
But what do you do if you're hankering for both pizza and a chicken parmy for breakfast, lunch or dinner?
Well, normally you'd have to make the ultimate decision and hope it wasn't a bad one - but Coles has swooped in to make that choice much easier.
Introducing the Chicken Parma Pizza from Coles.
The $5 pizza is packed full of southern fried popcorn chicken, smoked ham, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on a pizza base.
Head of Coles Convenience, Louis Eggar told news.com.au: "We know Aussies love pizza, and we know that a lot of people's go-to meal at the pub is a chicken parmigiana, so for us it was a combo made in heaven.
"And best of all, they can cook it in the comfort of their own home."
You can even buy it from Uber Eats if you can't be bothered to get off the couch.
If you think that topping is strange, maybe you should head over to Sweden, where some people put some batshit stuff on as toppings.
Apparently, putting banana on pizza is quite a common thing in the Scandinavian country. Yes, that's right. Banana, as in the fruit. On a pizza. No thanks.
Anyway, it doesn't end there. Some of the pizzas have banana, mushrooms, peanuts, and curry powder on them.
That's a hell of a lot of things that just sound as if they shouldn't be on a pizza together.
So, in case you are wondering, this pizza abomination is called Pizza Afrikana and can be bought at several restaurants in Sweden.
This is apparently a thing because the first folk who opened pizza parlours in Sweden - as well as not necessarily having any Italian heritage whatsoever - just stuck any old thing that anyone wanted on top of a pizza.
That's not how things are supposed to work, guys. You put the stuff on the menu and then people choose what you've got.
Any other way of doing things creates a chaotic world in which people eat Nutella with a boiled egg and Pot Noodles with a piece of Easter egg.
