Pizza Hut in Japan are trying to mess with your taste buds. They already launched the “Too Much Coriander Pizza.” Now they’re taking it a step farther by coming out with the “Wiener Coffee Pizza!” 

Now why is Pizza Hut doing this? It all has to do with word play and word confusion. The Japanese word for “Viennese” is “Wiener.” Wiener sausage is one of the most popular foods in Japan. But the Japanese just call them Wieners for short. But then there’s Viennese Coffee, so Japanese see it as Weiner Coffer or “Sausage Coffee.” So Pizza Hut Japan saw the opportunity to combine both!

On their website, it says in Japanese “Wiener coffee. A shocking combination that everyone has imagined from the name. Everyone’s misunderstanding turned into a pizza!”

The pizza comes with wieners rolled into the crust. The pizza is topped with cheese, cream cheese, and coffee drizzle all over. It also comes with a side of whipped cream in a carton to add on before you eat.

When tasted, people didn’t know what to think. But they didn’t say it was bad. They said it was a combination of sweet, salty, bitter, all combined into one. Like eating dinner and dessert together.

If they served it here in the United States, I’m sure there would be a lot of interest for people to try it. But that seems highly unlikely. For now, we’ll just have to live vicariously through those who have tried it in Japan!

Ranked: Best Pizza Places In Las Vegas

Extra pepperoni please… Vegas has delicious pizza and many different kinds. Looking for margarita? We got you covered. Supreme? Check. Classic cheese? Check.

Whether you’re looking for New York, Chicago or Neapolitan style there are plenty of fresh pies to go around. Dedicated pizza connoisseurs will go to war with you on what the best style of pizza is but regardless the taste is still magical with every bite. Pizza is an international delicacy that has been consumed for many years.

The origin of the word “Pizza” is a little unclear but states many etymologists believe it comes from the ancient German Lombardic word bizzo which means “bite.” Some etymologists think that the word Pizza comes from the Greek word, “Pitta” which has the root word of pita referring to brand bread.

In any case of the meaning, the doughy-saucy goodness is so popular that customers can order it in many different shapes and sizes. The best part is that you can add just about anything to the top of pizzas… Except pineapple. Sorry, not sorry about it.

According to, “the modern birthplace of pizza is southwestern Italy’s Campania region, home to the city of Naples.” That is not to say that the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians didn’t create their own form of what we know as pizza today.

Pizza possesses many great qualities of convenience and taste. You can find pizza on street corners in New York to upscale restaurants in high-rises with city scape views. Many customers like to pinch it, folding it in half or inside out folding it in half. There is no incorrect way to eat a pizza. Don’t listen to the haters.
