7 Fast Foods Even Less Healthy Than Hot Dog Pizza
There’s a limit to how much fat, sugar and salt our bodies can handle, but here in America we defy limits. Our fast-food chains carry pulled pork cheeseburgers, peanut butter bacon milkshakes and even a quesarito (which, I’m sad to confirm, is a hybrid quesadilla-burrito). Now, Pizza Hut has unveiled a meal even more likely to be listed as your official cause of death: The Hot Dog Pizza.
Hot dog pizzas are exactly what they sound like—enormous globs of dough packed with sauces, spices, cheese and toppings, flanked by 28 tiny hot dogs. Nutrition facts for Hot dog pizzas have not yet been made public, but that hasn’t stopped some news outlets from guessing. By ABC’s (dubious) estimate, each slice contains 460 calories (not terrible, considering the average 25-year-old male needs about 2,300 calories per day) and 26.6 grams of fat (again, not too bad). Fortunately, most fast food chains post nutrition facts for their meals online, even when the results aren’t pretty.
Here’s an analysis of several other extreme fast foods, many of which singlehandedly exceed daily recommended fat, salt or sugar values.
