Lidl And Morrisons Are Selling Pigs In Blankets Pizzas This Christmas
Now, we all love pigs in blankets, don't we? Well, obviously vegetarians don't for at least two key reasons, but everyone else will be glad to learn that Morrisons and Lidl are releasing pizzas with the delicious sausages wrapped in bacon on top.
The two supermarkets are vying for the same market and releasing their own separate versions of this twist on two classics in time for the festive season.
If you opt for the Lidl offering, you'll pay £3.29 for a stone-baked sourdough pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, red onions, pigs in blankets - obviously - and cranberry sauce.
That last ingredient is arguably the most contentious, wouldn't you say?
This particular pizza will be in stores as of next Thursday, which is 3 December.
Over at Morrisons you'll be able to pick up a full Christmas dinner pizza that features the classic tomato and mozzarella combo, but also sage and onion turkey, pigs in blankets - again, obviously - and yet more cranberry sauce.
This 10 inch pizza is going to set you back £2.89 and has already been sighted on the shelves of the UK.
It was shared by food blogging account newfoodsuk and has already gained some traction among internet observers who can't wait to get their mitts on one of Morrisons' seasonal treats.

OK, unclear whether that's a positive or negative review, but let's assume the former.
Another said that Morrisons had 'upped their pizza game', which is definitely a compliment, albeit a barbed one.
One genuine reviewer who has tried the pizza took to Twitter to express their delight, writing: "Morrisons Christmas turkey pizza is absolutely delicious!!!!"
It's four exclamation marks good, folks.
Leanne Cory, Morrisons' pizza buyer told MailOnline: "Pigs in blankets are often the most popular part of the Christmas dinner and it's never too early to start enjoying them so we've made them a hero of our new pizza.
"Our instore pizza makers are combining the pigs in blankets with turkey and cranberry sauce to create a real taste of Christmas and get us all in the festive spirit."
So, that means that every Morrisons that has a Market Street pizza counter will be stocking them from right now.
Well, 'tis the season, after all.
