Make it stop

In the ongoing war to make the most ridiculous pizza possible, US chain Little Caesars has devised a pie with three-and-a-half linear feet of bacon wrapped around the crust.

In case that wasn't enough meat, there's also pepperoni on the top.

Subtly titled the 'Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza', it will roll out nationwide on February 23 and costs $12.

Stating the obvious, Little Caesars CEO David Scrivano said: "Every time you take a bite out of the crust, you'll get bacon."

The new addition is an attempt to cash in on the US's obsession with bacon, sales of which have been steadily climbing the past four years, recently hitting the $4 billion mark.

Back in the UK, Pizza Hut is also trying to add a dash of ridiculousness to its menu.

It recently unveiled new pizzas apparently dreamt up while stoned including the 'BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger', 'Sweet Sriracha Dynamite' and 'Pretzel Piggy'.
