Two huge names in fast food, KFC and Pizza Hut, have come together to create a new pizza, and it comes with a gravy base.

The new dish, which is being made to celebrate National Pizza Day on the 9 February 2020, will feature Pizza Hut’s Classic Crust base and KFC’s iconic gravy, and be topped with mozzarella cheese, sweetcorn as well as, of course, popcorn chicken.

Although some twitter users were not happy, and many people questioned the addition of sweetcorn.

While others reckoned it would work better with a BBQ or Tomato sauce base.

Not content with just one new pizza from the team up, fans suggested they should also make a Hot Wing pizza.

Responding to one of the many replies, KFC stated that it will only be available for a limited time.

The fast food company confirmed that fans will only be able to order large sizes of the special flavour on the Pizza Hut website from 4 until 16 February.
