KFC to roll out ‘Chizza’ in the US

Breaking News

For the first time in the U.S., KFC is poised to roll out a combination fried chicken and pizza dish, appropriately dubbed the “Chizza.”

Instead of a dough crust like traditional pizza, the Chizza features a base layer of fried chicken topped with sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. “It’s not pizza, it’s Chizza: two 100% white meat Extra Crispy™ fried chicken filets topped with zesty marinara sauce, melty mozzarella cheese and crispy pepperoni,” a press release explained.

The concoction will be available for a limited time in the U.S., beginning on February 26, but people will be able to try it even sooner, and at no cost, in New York City.

“To celebrate its stateside debut, KFC will transform its restaurant at 242 E 14th St. in New York City – the pizza capital of the U.S. – into a one-of-a-kind “Chizzeria” pop-up where customers will get to try Chizza before anyone else for free,” the press release noted. “The KFC Chizzeria offers one menu item only, hot & fresh Chizza, in a KFC-ified, modern take on a classic pizzeria. The world’s first Chizzeria (probably) opens its doors for a limited time, Friday, Feb. 23-Feb. 24 (1-9 p.m. ET), but don’t worry, Chizza is available to the rest of the country starting Monday, Feb. 26.”

“Chizza first debuted on KFC menus in the Philippines in 2015 and since then the KFC exclusive has made its way around the world to Korea, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Germany, Spain and Mexico, among other countries. Now, you can experience the global phenomenon here in the U.S. for the very first time,” the press release stated.
