It's a pizza! No, it's a burger! No, it's Superman!!! a PIZZABURGER!!! The latest franken-food from Dallas-based Boston's, this combiner of the greatest two foodstuffs known to man is now being slunged at Boston's locations all over Big D, and we were first in line to give this sucker a taste and arbitrarily rate it.

Presentation They've got photos of the Pizzaburger hung all over the place, looking all moist, and well-sauced, and burger-stuffed-into-a-pizza-y. Add 1pt
When it comes out, though, it looks kinda like a roll with pepperoni and cheese oozing out of the top. No matter what you're expecting from a burger with a pizza wrapped around it, it probably isn't this. Deduct 7pts
When you cut into it, though... Add 3pts

Flavor As with a Tchotchke's waiters' suspenders, there's just a lot going on. There's the crust that tastes like a bun. Then there's the pizza sauce and cheese that follow it. Then there's a layer of bacon. Then then then then there's the burger itself. All in all, it's tough to concentrate on what exactly you're eating. Deduct 5pts
The pizza part of it is basically a normal thin-crust pepperoni pizza, and it's really good. Add 4pts
The burger part tastes reasonably fine, but lacks any sort of character-developing char, and it's accompanied by strips of bacon that have all the crispy rigidity of a jellyfish. Also: lettuce and tomato are served on the side. Fail. Deduct 3pts

Conclusions From a conceptual standpoint, this had all the hallmarks of a hall of fame combination, but in reality, it's got some flaws. As it stands, it rates somewhere between "gimmick" and "good". If you're not on cholesterol medication or are on cholesterol medication but really really want something that's kinda unlike anything else you've had, it's worth a trip to Boston's/the hospital.
