January 9, 2015: KFC appears to be determined to take fried chicken to places it has never been (nor probably should go), especially in the Philippines. The chain is famous for its Double Down sandwich, which features buns made from fried chicken patties. The patties were then transformed into a hot dog bun for the Filipino market earlier this year.
Now, the chain is selling the KFC Chizza, or a pizza that features fried chicken as the crust, in locations across the Philippines. A slab of fried chicken is covered in pizza sauce, cheese, and other toppings like pineapple and green peppers and is then baked. What will KFC fried chicken-ify next? Check out the ad below:
UPDATE, February 7, 2017: This deep-fried, cheese sauce-slathered monstrosity has proved to be so popular that KFC is bringing it to Singapore. The company also released this video — which bears an uncanny resemblance to a Tasty recipe clip — about how the KFC Chizza is made.

No word yet on whether KFC has plans to serve this calorie bomb stateside, but that would probably be a wise move considering that people are already plunking down cold hard cash for a much fancier version of this dish at Quality Italian in Manhattan.
