It's the Pizza Burger at Burger King

Step right up and ready yourself for Burger King's Pizza Burger with more than 2,500 delicious calories.

The unveiling will take place at King's Whopper Bar in Times Square, New York, next month.

The goodness begins with beef and a 9.5-inch sesame bun, topped with pepperoni, mozzarella, Tuscan pesto and marinara sauce.

It also comes in six slices, just like a pizza.

It has been called the "fat bomb" because, for $13 (£8.40), you get to enjoy 2,520 calories, the recommended daily intake is 2,500 calories for men and 2,000 for women, but we don't pay much attention to that.

One Pizza Burger contains 144g of fat - 59g of which is saturated, so we consider it kind of a health food.
John Schaufelberger, Burger King's vice president of global marketing, insisted the Pizza Burger is "intended to be shared" (yeah right).
